On returning home one day recently I was excited to discover a bag from Element14. Element14 boxes and bags are always exciting as they are always unexpected and full of interesting things I don't have. After looking at other comments I have guessed that this bag of gifts is for my comments on the 10 Year Challenge - which I had found interesting as 10 year ago I was still hammering away at my career and trying to open up the potential of my student's minds. Now I'm nearly two years retired and ...

This guide shows you how to use the MATRIX Creator or MATRIX Voice with ODAS, a library for direction of arrival, tracking, and much more.     What is ODAS? ODAS stands for Open embeddeD Audition System. This is a library dedicated to perform sound source localization, tracking, separation and post-filtering. ODAS is coded entirely in C, for more portability, and is optimized to run easily on low-cost embedded hardware. ODAS is free and open source. Find more at: https://github.com/ ...

Disclaimer: This circuit is connected directly to the mains voltage. You must care about all safety precautions before using the device. AC loads are everywhere around us because at least home appliances are supplied with the mains power. Therefore, we always face the situations that we want to have full control (dimming) over an AC load such as a lamp, a motor, vacuum cleaner … etc. We should know that controlling an AC load is not identical with a DC load. So we should use different el ...

An FM transmitter is one of the most popular devices between electronic hobbyist, professionals and even non-technical people. In this article, we gonna learn to how to build an easy, stable and digitally controllable FM transmitter.   For this design, I have selected the VMR6512 module which truly is like a full RF block on a chip!. It eliminates all essential circuitry for a basic FM transmitter such as inductors and trimmers. According to the VMR6512 datasheet: “VMR6512 is a highly ...
Motor driver circuits are one of the most useful designs for industrial, automotive and robotic applications. Full control over a DC motor is an essential function for a variety of applications. For many low power applications, 1A to 1.5A RMS current consumption limit/per motor is enough, therefore I selected a useful chip that can operate with just a few external components.   The DRV8833 chip is a dual H-bridge motor driver. According to the datasheet: “The DRV8833C device is an int ...
