AmpStrike – Battery Powered Bench Power Supply

Jakub Felcenloben [email protected] 2450 Introduction This is a small bench power supply that is powered by two lithium-ion batteries. The project was inspired by Dave Jones from EEVblog but the design is completely mine. The voltage range is 0-20V regulated in 10mV steps and maximum current is 1A with current limit set in 1mA steps. Schematic ampStrike_schematic Linear Voltage Regulator The power supply ...

21.1% efficiency with Perovskite solar cells

17.03.16 - EPFL scientists achieve the highest yet reproducibility for perovskite solar cells combined with a boundary-pushing 21.1% efficiency at normal operating conditions. Perovskite solar cells hold much promise for cost-effective solar energy. However, heat stability is an issue, and can significantly limit the solar cell’s long-term efficiency. A team of scientists led by Michael Grätzel’s lab at EPF ...

Circuit Cobbling’ the Riffle Data Logger

I always considered circuit boards like this something you bought, not something you made. Not any more. I actually helped to make the board in the picture above. And it was awesome fun. The board is designed to monitor the conductivity (and, possibly, contamination) of water in lakes and streams, with the wonderful feature that it fits through the mouth of a regular water bottle. It’s called Riffle and it ...

Monolithic linear battery charger operates from inputs up to 60V

  LTC Design Note: Monolithic linear battery charger operates from inputs up to 60V IntroductionFor charging relatively low capacity batteries, or maintenance charging backup and keep-alive batteries, linear topology battery chargers are valued for their compact footprints, simplicity and affordability. Even so, there is a dearth of linear chargers that accept a 10V or higher input voltage, leaving man ...

5V to 12V Step Up DC-DC Converter

tep up DC-DC converter is based on LM2577-ADJ IC, this project provides 12V output using 5V input, maximum output load 800mA. The LM2577 are monolithic integrated circuits that provide all of the power and control functions for step-up (boost), fly back, and forward converter switching regulators. The device is available in three different output voltage versions: 12V, 15V, and adjustable. Requiring a minim ...

Generating Analog Voltage with Digital Circuit

Generating Analog Voltage with Digital Circuit The purpose of this article is how to generate analog voltage with digital circuit. Although the market provides today a very broad range of dedicated digital-to-analogue converters, putting such a device in the schematic has a negative impact on the overall cost of the system. There are however, cheap methods of creating the required voltage levels, and even o ...

An almost-GHz active differential oscilloscope probe

An almost-GHz active differential oscilloscope probe Feb 26, 2016 I wanted to probe a PCB at work to see how a ~500MHz differential clock was behaving. My trusty 100MHz oscilloscope was no use, it was too slow to see anything and unfortunately I couldn’t quite justify buying a $3k differential probe for my faster scope just for this. There are a bunch of DIY probes to be found on the internet but none that ...

Polyphonic Synth Cable

This is the fourth synthesizer cable I've built, the first three being based on the ATtiny85. I have been looking into ARM chips but haven't gotten to grips with them just yet. Instead, I decided go back to the ATtiny2313, which has a quarter of the memories of the tiny85, but a hardware UART port and more pins. It's quite a simple idea really - generate square waves by toggling the digital outputs on many ...
