80s and 90s Demoscene
The Art Of The Algorithms
Great documentary on the 80s and 90s demoscene, which makes you want to get out your C64 and start programming again.
First PCB Design
PCB for debug adapter
How do you mean I can’t do
make clean, fix bugs,
make all ? When software engineers make hardware things can only go wrong; notice the size of the switch and the footprint on the PCB. But apart from that, pretty fly for a software guy.
The PCB design was done with KiCad on Linux (but it is also available for Windows and MacOS).
RGB LED Display test
New 4 channel Power Supply
To better handle the power supply needs (3.3V, 5V, 12V, 24V, etc.) of the diverse hardware I work with I replaced my old 3 channel Hameg power supply with a new Rohde&Schwarz HMP4040.
New 4/16 channel Oscilloscope
Since almost every project I did the last decades all use something like I2C, SPI, CAN, RS458, etc. I replaced my old Tek scope with a new Rohde&Schwarz RTM3004 that can do decoding of those protocols, so I don’t have to manually count bits anymore.
BK Precision 9206
New 150VDC Power Supply
Since I have several projects for public transportation information systems, where the use of 110VDC is common, I added a BK Precision 150VDC power supply to my lineup of equipment.
New bench multimeter
To be able to better measure things like ADC inputs, DAC outputs, I extended my equipment lineup with a Rigol DM3068 bench multimeter.
