Save a Fried Arduino Mega - Troubleshoot and repair your Arduino Mega. __ Contact: Jameco Electronics

Sawtooth wave oscillator - In this page, I introduce the sawtooth wave oscillator which used the operational amplifier  (TL082) .  The composition of this circuit is the same as the triangular wave oscillator basically and is using two operational amplifiers.  At the circuit diagram above, IC (1/2) is the Schmitt circuit and IC (2/2) is the integration circuit.  The difference with the triangular wave oscillator is to be changing the time of the charging and the discharging of the capacitor __ Designed by Seiichi Inoue

Scanmate - Audio Activated Recorder ScanMate connects between your scanner and tape recorders  (via the recorder's microphone or auxiliary input and its remote start jack) . __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Scanning 7-Segment & KeypA - D - Since the output buffer ofP1 can sink 20mA  (each output pin, but maximum IOL for all outputs was limited at 80mA) , thus we can use P1 to drive LED display directly.  As shown in the circuit, Two common-anode 7-segment LEDs are connected to P1 with 180 Ohms current limiting resistor.  Each segment of two LED __ Designed by Wichit Sirichote

Scenix & PIC Programmer - I was trying to think of a suitable name for this project, and after literally seconds of careful deliberation, I gave up and decided to call it Fluffy.  Sorry.  Anyway, Fluffy is a SX programmer for people who have already experimented with PIC chips, and want to try out the Scenix SX family.  I built Fluffy because I wanted to experiment with the SX's, but didn't want to spend $300 or so bucks on the official development system.  To build it, you will need a PIC16F84    (a 16C84 will probably also work, but I don't have any to test!) .  Note that this implies you should already have a working PIC programmer.  If you don't, you might want to check out COM84, or any of the multitude of free, cheap PIC programmers available on the web.   __ Designed by Ben  last name not found

Scheme implements multiple output ports - 02/16/98 EDN-Design Ideas - In P/C systems, you sometimes need to use many output ports and update all the ports simultaneously.  For instance, in systems that use multiplexing techniques, the output ports require refreshing for every scanning period.  One example is a system of multiple dot-matrix LEDsFile has many circuits, scroll to find this one __ Circuit Design by W Kurdthongmee, Nakorn Si Thammarat, Thailand
