Holiday Special 19 Enter Your Holiday Season Project for a Chance to Win Over $20,000 Worth of Prizes and Gifts to Give! Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   I have wanted to make an animated message display with lights and sound for sometime, so this holiday I decided to do it!   I have used the Keyestudio 8x8 Dot Matrix Modules before so decided to use them for this. I wanted to use more than one 8x8 dot matrix displays but I also wa ...
I thought that since I had information spread out all over the site, I would try to merge all the details all in one place (here).  I'll try to fill in any blanks as I put it together if I find something I missed.  Some of this will be word-for-word, but I thought it would be useful to have one single location to follow the design from start to finish.   I like to make homemade Christmas props for my front yard (you can see some here as well as here).  In addition to what is ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   Introduction: Just short of a year ago, I read an article on hackaday about the art of hiding components inside of a multilayer PCB stack. I immediately was convinced that I had to try this at some point, as I personally love the aesthetics of having PCBs visible in products, and figur ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   There are lots of theories about what powers Santa's sleigh. There may be some magic on element14, but in this exercise we are exploring other possibilities....   The theory explored here is that the sleigh is powered by a drone...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   Although this isn't a typical happy new year message, I do hope your dreams and bucket lists continue to seem possible. I thought I would kick it off with a lesson in what not to do based on a comment by Fred27 about using a hot air workstation in a kitchen. This is another inappropri ...
I put these videos in a comment reply to one of my previous posts, but I'll give them their full due in case it was easy to miss.   Well, I hoped to do a better video, but it is out in the yard and I don't want to tear it apart while it is working well .  One comment I would like to make is that in the video I said that I was generating 5V for the LM3914, I am actually running that off of 15V as well.  So both converters put out 15V, it is just that one has better current output. ...
OK, here is an updated schematic; it is actually the exact same as before minus a pull-up resistor on the FETs.  So how about I explain things a little more and maybe we can see what I messed up this time .   So the FETs are P-Channel setup up as a low-side load.  I like to use low-side because then I don't have power always on at the other end of the Drain.  In this application, there is no power in the system at all unless it is being cranked, but it is just a habit, so I ...

Christmas Spirit Crank

OK, as promised, here is a simple schematic (pretty stripped down as I didn't have time to dust off Orcad).  I tried to lay it out so that it can be followed left to right, top to bottom.  I think I captured most of the big points, but please point out something if you think I missed it (or have a question).   SCHEMATIC IS JUNK FOR BEING A COTTON HEADED NINNY MUGGINS! WILL ADD A LINK TO AN UPDATED ONE WHEN I POST. LEAVING THIS UP AS A LEARNING EXERCISE, DO NOT USE!   Here is ...
