Dave takes you step-by-step through designing a DC-DC converter using the venerable MC34063. And then he builds it and checks the performance.
Dave shows you how to take apart the new Amazon Kindle 3 3rd Generation 3G/GSM/WiFI Ebook reader, and examines and discusses the circuitry, assembly, and build quality.
And hackers can get excited about the accessible ARM JTAG port.
Dave unboxes and reviews the new Amazon Kindle 3 3rd Generation 3G GSM/WiFi Ebook reader.
What superlatives can he find for the new E-Ink display?
And what happens to the E-Ink display when you put it in the thermal chamber?
The 4th Live EEVbog show.
Dave answering questions in the lab and flashing the odd bit of hardware around.
Are you are a hobbyist, hacker, maker, or garage engineer with a great product idea?
Dave gives you his Top 5 tips for bringing your product to market.
And a bonus Top 5 reasons to avoid patents.
Copyright, Marketing, Advertising, Protection, and Creative Commons Open Source all get a look in.
A follow on from some of the recent blogs that have involved basic thermal heatsink calculation. This time around Dave takes you though the basic theory of thermal design and how heatsink calculations work. Then there are some real world temperature measurements to see how close to the theory we Continue reading EEVblog #105 – Electronics Thermal Heatsink Design Tutorial
The live EEVblog show recorded back on July 4th. I only just around to editing and uploading it.
The new Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscope
Dave & Dr Phil check out the world’s largest depth of field laser hologram display at Macquarie University.
It was part of the Paula Dawson exhibition. The bar display is titled “To Absent Friends”
This hologram was created in 1988 and is still the worlds largest to this day. They don’t Continue reading EEVblog #103 – World’s Largest Laser Hologram with Dr Phil
Dave grabs a few junkbox parts and builds a useful constant current load for switch mode power supply, battery testing, and other applications.

Dave turns a low cost reptile egg incubator into a decent 2degC to 60degC lab thermal chamber.
Throw in a Rigol oscilloscope, an Arduino, and a few multimeters for good measure.
The model used is the HERP Nursery II, also known as the BCR-25 Continue reading EEVblog #101 – Hacking your own Peltier LAB Thermal Chamber
