Parallel port controls arbitrary-waveform generator -  06/13/02 EDN-Design Ideas You can use the parallel port of your PC and a few additional components to generate a powerful, easy-to-use arbitrary-waveform generator.  By using a Visual Basic program with the circuit in Figure 1, you can generate any waveform(for example, sinusoid, triangle, amplitude- or frequency-modulated, or exponential decay] by simply entering its characteristic equation __ Circuit Design by Art Kay, Texas Instruments Inc, Tucson, AZ

Parallel Port Servo Controller -  schematic only __ Designed by shaunwilson19 @ yahoo.com

Parametric & Graphic Eq's Plus Peaks & Notches -  If you're into playing with tone controls and notch filters to see how they change the sound out of your effects, you will undoubtedly have built several glops of R's, C's and pots, maybe some L's to make up the tone networks.  While this is fun, it's not very flexible.  Sooner or later you might wonder if there is a more general solution to messing with tone controls.   __ Designed by 1999 R.G. Keen

Parked-Vehicle Highway Flasher -  Often, at night, a speeding vehicle rams into another vehicle parked at the edge of a highway.  Cars have parking flashers, but trucks, buses and loading rickshaws rarely have any form...__ Electronics Projects for You

Parking Lamp control -  When you encounter to a traffic jam, the car may not go on for long time in idling condition.  Although it depends on the car if you turn on the lighting devices in idling condition at night the electricity of the battery is having got gone.  It is because there are many consumption currents of lighting devices etc.  more the power generation volume of the dynamo.   __ Designed by Seiichi Inoue

Part 1: 200W-48 AdvancedTCA Hot Swap Controller with I2C Input/Output Monitoring & Power Good Watchdog -  The LTC4261 negative voltage Hot Swap controllers allow a board to be safely inserted and removed from a live backplane.  Using an external N-channel pass transistor, the board supply voltage can be ramped at an adjustable rate.  The devices feature independently adjustable inrush current and overcurrent limits to minimize stresses __ Linear Technology/Analog Devices App Note, Mar 26th 2010

Part 2: 200W-48 AdvancedTCA Hot Swap Controller with I2C Input/Output Monitoring & Power Good Watchdog -  The LTC4261 negative voltage Hot Swap controllers allow a board to be safely inserted and removed from a live backplane.  Using an external N-channel pass transistor, the board supply voltage can be ramped at an adjustable rate.  The devices feature independently adjustable inrush current and overcurrent limits to minimize stresses __ Linear Technology/Analog Devices App Note, Mar 26th 2010

Passive filters fill the bill at audio frequencies -  02/01/01 EDN-Design Ideas Low-frequency filters, particularly at audio frequencies, usually take the form of active filters.  These filters eliminate expensive inductors with windings of many turns.  Both analog and digital active filters are most compatible with large-scale integration at the subsystem and system levels.   __ Circuit Design by Richard Kurzrok, Queens Village, NY

PC Controlled Voltage or Current Source -  If you are interested in model aeroplanes and have the capital, a radio controlled electric park flyer is a must have.  An RC aeroplane under 400 grams floats around like the rubber models of my youth and contact with the ground doesn't seems to involve that sickening crunch __ Contact: r dot p @ webone.com.au

PC Controls Inexpensive Waveform Generator -  6-Jun-96 EDN-Design Ideas The circuit in Figure 1 is a simple cost-effective waveform generator using PC control.  You calculate the digital image of the desired waveform and store it in the 32k X 8-bit RAM(62256] through the 74HCT245 data buffer and the 16-bit local-address bus generator built with the 74LS393 binary counters __ Circuit Design by J Jayapandian, Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research, Tamil Nadu, India

PC controls light dimmer -  08/19/99 EDN-Design Ideas Control one light dimming from PCUsing the simple circuit in Figure 1 , you can control the light intensity in your room or work area from your PC.  The heart of the circuit is a low-power D/A converter that converts digital words from a computer's parallel port to analog-voltage signals.    __ Circuit Design by Afshin Mellati

PC Infrared Remote Receiver -  Build this simple unit and play DVDs and MP3s on your PC via remote control.__ SiliconChip

PC Interface for Point Controller -  Schematic only

PC IR Remote Control -  This page gives some information on a PC based IR remote control system I've developed for computer control of TV, video, satellite and hifi equipment etc.  I have used an IBM compatible, so the software here is for such a machine, however I guess that it is straightforward (perhaps easier) to implement this on another type of machine __ Designed by Chris Dodge

PC or PICAXE interface for UHF remote control -  Simple circuit lets you control the Oatley Electronics 4-Channel UHF Transmitter using a PC or PICAX__ SiliconChip

PC Parallel Port Output Capabilities -  includes instructions how to connect a relay to PC parallel port __ Designed by Tomi Engdahl

PC Securely Controls Relay -  11/23/95 EDN-Design Ideas When a PC-driven solid-state or electromechanical relay controls external equipment, take care to design an interface that avoids false triggering.  The interface circuit in Figure 1a switches the relay on and off only after a specific sequence of outputs.  Thus, this design protects the relay against the influence of computer-reset and I/O operations that some drivers perform during system start-up to locate add-on cards __ Circuit Design by Jerzy R Chrzaszcz, Institute of Computer Science, Warsaw University of Technology Warsaw, Poland
