Linux Fu: The Great Power of Make

Linux Fu: Scripting for Binary Files

If you ever want to put in writing a binary file from a standard language like C, it isn’t all that arduous to do. About the worst factor you might need to take care of is makes an attempt to faux line endings throughout Windows and Linux, however there’s normally a strategy to flip that […]

Linux Fu: The Great Power of Make

Linux Fu: The Great Power of Make

Over the years, Linux (effectively, the working system that’s generally often known as Linux which is the Linux kernel and the GNU instruments) has turn out to be rather more sophisticated than its Unix roots. That’s inevitable, in fact. However, it means old-timers get to slowly develop into new options whereas new individuals must study […]

Buttery Smooth Fades with the Power of HSV

Buttery Smooth Fades with the Power of HSV

In firmware-land we often refer to colours utilizing RGB. This is intuitively pleasing with a bit of background on coloration idea and an understanding of how multicolor LEDs work. Most of the colourful LEDs we’re use not truly a single diode. They are crimson, inexperienced, and blue diodes shoved collectively in tight quarters. (Though curiously […]

Pipelining Digital Logic in FPGAs

Getting Good at FPGAs: Real World Pipelining

Parallelism is your good friend when working with FPGAs. In truth, it’s usually the most important profit of selecting an FPGA. The dragons hiding in programmable logic often contain timing — chaining collectively quite a few logic gates actually impacts clock timing. Earlier, I checked out how to split up logic to take better advantage […]

Pipelining Digital Logic in FPGAs

When you first study digital logic, it in all probability looks as if it’s straightforward. You study AND and OR gates and determine that’s not very exhausting. However, going from just a few primary gates to one thing like a CPU or one other advanced system is a complete totally different story. It is like […]

Optocouplers: Defending Your Microcontroller, MIDI, and a Hot Tip for Speed

Optocouplers: Defending Your Microcontroller, MIDI, and a Hot Tip for Speed

Deep within the coronary heart of your newest undertaking lies a bit of silicon mind. Much just like the mind inside your individual bone-plated noggin, your microcontroller wants safety from the surface world occasionally. When it involves isolating your microcontroller’s delicate little pins from excessive voltages, floor loops, or common noise, nothing beats an optocoupler. […]

Printed It: Toolbag Essentials

While complicated gadgets assembled from 3D printed elements are definitely spectacular, it’s the easy prints which have at all times held essentially the most attraction to me personally. Being in a position to choose an object up away from bed of your printer and instantly put it to make use of with little to no further […]

Biasing That Transistor: The Common Emitter Amplifier

Biasing That Transistor: The Common Emitter Amplifier

If you open up the perennial favorite electronics textbook The Art Of Electronics and switch to the part on transistors, you will notice a bit of cartoon. A transistor is proven as a room during which “transistor man” stands watching a dial exhibiting the bottom present, whereas adjusting a potentiometer that limits the collector present. If […]
