Standalone BreadBoard Breakout for PIC Microcontrollers

DSC09678

I wanted to make a breadboard breakout for PIC microcontrollers after seeing this arduino breadboard breakout from adafruit. This product is fully standalone and yet has very small footprint so that it can be conveniently plugged into the breadboard. The most amazing part was that it still had 2 rows on each side of the breadboard for the user to jump wires. First I thought of making a breakout board for the 40 Pin DIP package that I usually use. Then I realized …

How to Make a Tray to suspend PCBs into the Etchant

DSC09619

In this post I will document the procedure involved in making a tray to suspend PCBs. The etchant (FeCl3 solution) is toxic and cannot be handled with bare hands. So I devised this easy and reusable method for suspending the PCBs with the toner into the solution. If you are planning to make PCBs once in a while, then this method could prove to be really useful and time saving. But if you are a one timer then this a tiresome venture …

EDA (Electronic Design Automation) – Where Electronics Begins

EDA industry net

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) is a relatively young five-billion$ industry with a very colorful upbringing, I’m very grateful for, and is an honor to write about it. EDA involves a diverse set of software algorithms and applications that are required for the design of complex next generation semiconductor and electronics products. The increase in VLSI design complexity poses a significant challenge to EDA; application performance is not scaling effectively, since microprocessor performance gains have been hampered due to increases in …

Which is the best EDA tool?

best EDA tool

If you haven’t locked yourself in a cave for a couple of years, you would have easily come across this question several times when you went through electronics forums and the discussions at Facebook pages. This is one question that has been directed at me for a very long time by my friends the “best EDA tool”. The answer to the question is quite primitive. There is no such thing as the best EDA tool. All tools are good as long as there is …
