Arduino Bike Speedometer

Monitor your road speed using the Arduino. This project uses a magnetic switch (also called a reed switch) to measure the speed of one of the bike's wheels.  The Arduino calculates the mph, and send this information out to the LCD screen on the handlebars as you ride.  It is compatible with any kind of bike/wheel, simply enter the radius of the wheel in the firmware to calibrate the device for your setup. P ...

RESPONSE OF A 1ST ORDER RL CIRCUIT

Using Part-Sim we can verify the response of this RL circuit, and our calculations for the initial, final, and the transition between those conditions.  While analyzing this circuit’s response on paper and in Part-Sim, we must use the initial conditions (time and V) and component values.  In Part-Sim setting up the switch is the hardest part; with the simulation requiring set up of a voltage controlled swit ...

Test Ideas: Protect USB measurement circuits

USB data-acquisition modules offer good value and ease of use, which makes them an attractive choice for manufacturing test. But before you use the modules in a manufacturing test system, you need to take steps to protect them. During manufacturing test of circuit boards or subassemblies, a defect in an assembly may result in a condition that damages a data-acquisition module. The typical USB DIO (digital I ...
