A presentation by DJ Delorie called Soup to Nuts with Free Software. It highlights the current state of free open source software for end-to-end engineering and personal use. Operating systems, EDA tools, office tools Continue reading EEVblog #125 – Soup to Nuts with Free Software
Dave dropped by Apex Electronics in Sun Valley just outside LA, the biggest and oldest surplus electronics store in California (and probably the US?) . Come on a tour through the aladdin’s cave of surplus electronics and hardware.
It’s actually pretty sad to see all this old technology just lying on Continue reading EEVblog #124 – A Tour of Apex Electronics
Yes, the drive time rant is back.
Dave gives some choice advice to the semiconductor manufacturers.
The announcement of the Renesas RX Design Contest at Devcon 2010.
Dave makes a BIG appearance about half way through.
I caught up with DJ Delorie at the Renesas Devcon 2010 event and he was kind enough to sit down for 10 minutes and chat about the Open Source gEDA PCB/Schematic design package, of which he is one of the major developers.

The final day of Renesas Devcon 2010. A fantastic event, and a big thanks to Renesas for inviting me and the EEVblog viewers along.
Day 3 (for Dave anyway) was all about Open Source Hardware and gEDA. But let’s not forget the Q&A with the head Renesas MCU honcho, and the evening with James Meigs, editor of Popular Mechanics magazine.
Nerd nirvana, what smells?, and who’s number 1?
Somehow Dave scored an invite to Renesas Devcon 2010 in Anaheim California, a mega event for microcontroller and embedded uber nerds.
