ATX Power Control Board
When I built the MING Pi, I needed a way to signal to the ATX power supply that it needed to turn on. I did that by cutting an ATX connector in half and soldering the Power On wire to
Simple Fan Speed Controller
A simple fan controller based on an ATTiny board and DS18B20 temperature sensor generating a PWM signal driving a power transisitor to control the fan.
Pi vs Arduino
Last week I gave a talk showing three different ways to flash an LED. One of the questions at the end was why would we use a Pi vs an Arduino?
Jumbo RGB LED
At the end of last year, I was working on a project for Element14 Presents that combined woodworking, power electronics and high powered LEDs. I upscaled an RGB LED 100 times from 5mm to 500mm. There were a few parts

Over the last week, the gates have been painted and the holes for the bases have been dug and filled with postcrete. To ensure the holes were all filled to the same level I remove the gravel between the holes
Back in Dec 2017, I proposed the idea of a Fizz Buzz game as an entry to a Ben Heck Show competition. I decided now was time to finish the project.
