to some particularly useful web sites
that you may not have run across yet, and some
Alan Yates presents interesting, creative and fun topics and
projects dealing with electronics, firmware, optics, physics, math,
pyrotechnics and a lot more. Its faster for you to check it out
yourself than to read this!
This is a wonderful electronics projects website created and
maintained by an engineer in Ageo city in Japan, who goes by the pen
name of "ChaN". Lots of interesting projects. This person is
creative and well and prolific. Check it out - some proejcts and
notes about AVC controllers among many other things.
Another prolific Japanese electronics hobbyist. This site conatins a
lot of projects related to ham radio. Most are pretty small
projects, though there are a few pretty large ones as well. There
are also some pretty good tutorials. The handmade drawings and
schematics make this site charming as well as educational. This is
one of my personal favorite sites.
Harry's Homebrew Homepag e
A lot of great RF and related projects and articles from Harry
LED Based Handycam Light Project
Sanjiv made a video camera light that uses 20 LEDs. Aside from some
inventiveness in the design, Sanjiv showed uncommon resourcefulness
and manual skill in remaking common materials into his creation.
Web-accessible electronics distributor in Thailand. You can pay by
many methods, including by ATM and get the parts via EMS in a day or
two. Very good prices, especially compared to the distributors I've
used in the U.S. I have used them several times and am very happy
with the service and the materials. I believe they will ship
internationally and accept payment by credit card.
LED's -white, IR, varous colors. Quality parts, good prices, prompt
delivery. Recomended by Denis Duncan, and I tried them and liked the
service and parts too.
Lots of microntroller-related parts, kits, and material. AVR and
Pic. Many web links related to microcontrollers.
Don donated some boards to me and I am grateful to him.
