Do you ever need to drive something with more power than your microcontroller pin can handle? That is where MOSFETs come in. They are digital switches that can handle much more current than a GPIO pin.
Three Products from Amazon to Boost your ESD Practices
It’s winter time and the air is dry (at least it is in Utah). This mean static builds up more easily as you walk around the carpet at your home or office. Many engineers and hobbyists throw caution to the wind when it comes to electrostatic damage. I did for many years.
Four Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Electrical Current
While studying electrical engineering, I learned early on that electricity doesn’t really work like everyone thinks. Here are four things you probably didn’t know about electric current.
Choosing the Right Solder
The choice of the right type of solder for electronics projects and PCB prototyping is actually an easy one despite there being hundreds of options. There are three things you need to look at:
Introduction to IPC-A-610
An early Christmas gift arrived at Stratify Labs today: the latest revision of the IPC-A-610 standard. At Stratify Labs, we like to stay up to date with the most current industry guidelines for building and designing electronic assemblies. PCB design plays a big part in ensuring a smooth transition from prototyping to production and long term reliability.
