I use TikTok, and while its recommended feed (For You Page) can be full of a lot of junk that I try to filter out, sometimes I get a few gems across my stream. Like this guy, who goes into a lot of detail and quick diagnostics in fixing Apple devices. His enthusiasm is also amazing. Enjoy.

I came across this lovely term on Twitter the other day for tablet and laptop battery packs that had seen better days (usually when continuously powered/charged). It's #spicy pillow. LOL. https://twitter.com/hashtag/spicypillow?lang=en Anyway, this reminded me of a little project I had in mind (as shown in schema below). As a… Show more

We've been cleaning up groups and spaces, making some areas… Show more
Specifically, this heatsink: Fischer Elektronik LA6/150 12V. I'm trying to work out how that might be used so I'm putting it out there to see if anyone has used something like it or have ideas. From what I can tell, it 'seems' to be used with a removable bottom plate for 'flat' semiconductors but I'm thinking that something like, say, a TO220… Show more
As mentioned a number of times in this post, one of the options I was considering, and suggested by others, is to parallelise MOSFETS. I didn't really want to get into solutions in this post as I was specifically asking about the heatsink, but for anyone who reads this in the future a good intro to the topic is given in this white paper from…

The person in question is someone I… Show more

DeepMind partnered with the Met Office to advance Nowcasting science and accurately predicting rainfall within a two-hour time window. (Image credit: Pixabay) This is the first time I’ve been worried about AI taking a job over completely. It’s just a matter of time before meteorologists are out of the job as it sits now.

I'm looking for ideas for connecting encased devices. So PCB -> Panel <-air gap-> Panel -> PCB. Better: Free end (for crimping connector) -> Panel <-air gap-> Panel -> Free end (for crimping connector). I'm just looking to transfer signals and low-current, low-voltage power in a cheap way. Although PCB edge-mounted connectors are an available… Show more

First of I'm new so Hi, I have been messing about with Lpads (I have a few horns I need to tame in P.A enclosures). I have created a crossover in LTspice, added the appropriate Lpad resistor values then I ran a simulation to check everything over. First the voltage supply was set to 56V (level required to drive 8 ohm speakers to their… Show more
