What Is A Spot Welder And Why Do You Need One

By Michael & George MarinisElectric and electronic enthusiasts love having every single tool that can make their lives easier. Today, we will be presenting a tool that does just that, a spot welder.What does a spot welder do?:A spot welder – as its name implies – is a device that can weld two metals at a single spot. These two pieces of metal should be “clean”, meaning that there must be no paint or any other coating, so that the current can pass through them. The most important characterist...

How to measure differential signals using an oscilloscope [Examining the ADSL2+]

By Hesam Moshiri, Anson BaoSingle-Ended TransmissionSingle-ended signaling is a simple and common way of transmitting electrical signals from a sender to a receiver. The signal is ground referenced (0 Volt) and one conductor (wire) carries the signal and one conductor carries the common reference potential. The current associated with the signal travels from sender to receiver and returns to the power supply through the shared ground connection. If multiple signals are transmitted, the carrier r...

How to build an isolated digital AC dimmer using Arduino

By Hesam Moshiri, Anson BaoDisclaimer: This circuit is connected directly to the mains voltage. You must care about all safety precautions before using the device. AC loads are everywhere around us because at least home appliances are supplied with the mains power. Therefore, we always face the situations that we want to have full control (dimming) over an AC load such as a lamp, a motor, vacuum cleaner … etc. We should know that controlling an AC load is not identical with a DC load. So we shou...

How to make a noise-free infrared obstacle detection

By Hesam Moshiri, Anson BaoAn obstacle detection unit is an essential part of a variety of projects, such as robotics and security applications. The infrared sensors are widely used for these types of applications. The main drawback of some circuit designs is that the detection units are sensitive to the outside lights and react unstable or noisy.In this project, we selected a proper IR receiving component and designed the circuit in a way to act as stable as possible. Also, you can adjust the s...

How to make a variable step-down DC to DC converter using TPS54331

By Hesam Moshiri and Anson Bao.Almost in any circuit design, building at least one regulation stage is necessary. Two power supply design options are available, which are linear and switching. The linear regulators are easy to build but inefficient, especially when there is a high difference between the input voltage and the desired output voltage. Also, by increasing the regulator output current, the efficiency also decreases. Both of these problems are easily visible in terms of heat dissipati...
