I noticed that there isn't a electronic based thread, so I figured I would start one. This will be the spot to list your tinkering, projects, ideas, and whatnot. I know this won't be the most lively thread, but who knows. As long as we can share tips and tricks we all benefit.
Right now my projects include:
A few race car wiring harnesses
A chassis control system
Learning PICmirco and ARM Cortex M3
Making a CANbus scanner
Been a rough week/weekend, ended up having to put my cat of 15 years to sleep :/ Well, I started digging into this project to take my mind off stuff and stay busy. Someone threw away what looked to be a perfectly good QSC rack mount amp, so I scooped it up. Well, it won't power on at all. No visible signs of damage, such as reflow, busted caps, or burn marks.
Shame, because I was hoping I could just install some new smoke and be on my way :/
Looks to be a high-voltage issue with the power supply, or possibly the PWM circuitry. Got the schematics and actual service manual for it, so I have a good idea of the layout, and hot-spots to check.
Don't know what the fuck I'll do with 3600 watts of power, but at least it will keep me busy for a while.
Gnome - Cool thread idea first of all. Second, cool rf remote. I will actually be building one tomorrow for a mechatronics project. Basically a potentiometer and switch wirelessly transmitted to an LCD display giving voltage readouts. To be later incorporated into a robot. I'll update this thread over the next year as the project comes along
I'm going to bump this one as it is summer again and time for fun projects! So post them up here.
I had to stop working on my previous dash project, but I've dug it out again and started tinkering. I'm going to get this dash to communicate with a ProEFI (once I purchase it) and then have to fun.
I upgraded the remote to three buttons and is being bred for a remote start device.
I've also started a project for the school making a S-Band Bidirectional Phase Array <- fun...
I got kind of burned out after doing the racks and screens in the naval operations center at the pentagon as well as military bases all over the world with Avsinc later managing a company that rebuilds and test ecus.
I'm now working on exotic cars and, guess what, I'm being tasked to invent things that don't yet exist and implementing data acquisition systems on these same cars.
there's no escaping this stuff.
