MCM Electronics Daily Deal and Bulk Bargain

LED Open Sign

Posted March 25, 2017 by Chris

"In this open source hardware and firmware project, an LED “Open” sign is built using an ATtiny2313 microcontroller. This is the type of sign that would typically be used in a shop or restaurant to show that it is open for business."

GPS Transmission With HC 12

Posted March 22, 2017 by Chris

"The first article in this two-part series, Understanding and Implementing the HC-12 Wireless Transceiver Module, uses the HC-12 to create long-distance data transmission between two Arduino Unos."

DTFM Controlled Robot Using Arduino

Posted March 19, 2017 by Chris

"In present time almost all the people are familiar with robots. Robots play a very important role in human life. Robots are a machine which reduces the human efforts in heavy works in industries, building etc. and makes life easy."

FPGA Controlled RPG LED Matrix

Posted March 16, 2017 by Chris

"A dot matrix RGB LED graphic panel, managed by a FPGA-based controller board that may be separately used as a demoboard, so to evaluate the potential of the on-board Spartan 6. First installment."

Twixbot

Posted March 13, 2017 by Chris

"A metal tin makes a neat little enclosure for some electronics and is usually rigid enough to mount some motors to. I have lots of motors laying around so it took very little effort to get this particular bot running (under an hour from start to finish) and there are very few parts."

PSU Burner

Posted March 10, 2017 by Chris

"What does one do when designing a power supply? Well, build a power supply tester, of course. One of the simplest things to build is a constant current load. This will allow for testing of the endurance of the power supply, as most of the designs out there are using slow components."

Raspberry Pi Traffic Light

Posted March 7, 2017 by Chris

"Out of the box the light runs on 120v with all 3 lights permanently turned on. Many of these knock-off traffic signals at least attempt to blink the lights, that’s alright though because the old electronics days are numbered."

USB LED Torch

Posted March 4, 2017 by Chris

"Build a USB LED torch using a clear white LED, resistor and type A USB connector. This easy project for beginners in electronics requires some soldering."

2×4 H-Bridge

Posted March 1, 2017 by Chris

"This motor-driver is an H-bridge circuit that was designed to drive a single DC motor at up to 30amps at 24vdc. It incorporates a simple design utilizing parallel mosfets to allow a higher amperage rating and requires 4 wires to control each bridge, 2 digital and 2 PWM capable."

Developing an IR Remote and Software Controller

Posted May 11, 2016 by Chris

"This one is an interesting one, it’s something we’ve been looking at for a while and figuring out how to solve it. We have sets of speakers and projectors and the users keep losing the remotes, or misplaced/stolen. Usually this wouldn’t be a problem, we’ll just contact the supplier or manufacturer and order replacements. Except we can’t any more."
