UPDATE Feb 11 2017:- An observant viewer spotted a discrepancy between the code in the video and the code attached/published here. I have now updated it to all match. In the following two videos we look at the use of a TI ADC and DAC TSSOP-16 chips to extend the abilities (Resolution and accuracy) of the Arduino UNO for use with the Power Supply project First up the ADC - ADS1220
and now the DAC, DAC8574, Oh and some more I2C debugging with the MDO3000
As you can tell from all the videos, im playing catchup, sorry about that In this video we look at using an Arduino UNO to measure the volts and Amps for a power supply and also have a look at more display options from overseas As a side note, I was pleasantly surprised at the results of the low cost Volt and Ammeter as well as the Arduino ADC ...
Again, I have been busy making videos and want them to be available to view, I will be following up with diagrams to go with this in the next little while In this video I show the basics of a voltage doubler using a classic design but as you will see, there are a few minor issues, I will be following up with an alternative approach if you go ahead with a toroidal transformer for you PSU ...
In this video I look at the options for powering the Modular Bench Power Supply including re-cycled equipment like an old laptop power adapter through to 160VA Toroidal Transformers I will be adding pictures etc but I wanted to get the video available in the mean time ...
Note: Also check out the ADALM1000 being used to monitor current consumption of a CodeBug.

We've been asked many times since the new Raspberry Pi 2 was launched "Does BitScope Micro work with it?". The answer is an unequivocal yes ! Thanks to our friends at element14 we managed to get our hands on the brand new Raspberry Pi within 24 hours of its release so I personally set about bootstrapping it to see if it works with BitScope. The result is this video:
You can see just how easy it is to get started. The new Raspberry Pi 2 is a brilliant upgrade to a fantastic little computer an ...
