This month's featured example, Cyclops-1000: An Electronic Eye for Rotational Speed Measurement , shabaz shows you how to make a home made test tool to measure how fast things turning. Cyclops-1000 can be used for vehicle diagnostics, to check how fast the drill is spinning, and math/physics experiments to see how fast wheels or other parts are spinning. It's low-cost (<$25) and makes a good introduction to understanding the basics of electronics and learning to solder. It gives you a chance to work with a microcontroller, a development board, build a circuit, and with the PCB it can be done by someone with no prior experience with electronics & design projects. It will give you experience programming a microcontroller and modifying code. When you're done you'll have an RPM device (tachometer) for measuring the rotational speed of all sorts of machines!
Introduction When I saw Jon's The ByEar 2000, I remembered a Cypress' video showing a construction of an analog alarm and posted that as an comment under his blog post. PSoCs usually have many more...
Peter, Jon and I are designing a programmable electronic load, here on element14: Programmable Electronic Load We'll never make it in time for the DIY Test Equipment initiative (we may have a first more...
Just understood what the prize is haha. In that case, this could benefit me with the documentation of the different max speeds of all electric motors in my inventory. I could then select the most more...
I have recently begun the construction of an 8-bit computer based around an Intel 8088 CPU. I believe that I have all necessary components for the build, but I am still not too sure. A handful of ICs more...
