Happy Friday, Everyone!


Here's the next round of cool stuff we know (hope?) you've been waiting for all week. Plus, we have the results from last week's vote on microcontrollers. If you're interested to see how others voted, you can check it out here.


Also, this week, we're starting a two question survey series. We hope you'll take 30 seconds or so to play along. It really does help us get to know you better and figure out what you like, need, and want from us. After all, that's why we're here! Here's how it works:  

  1. Click the link.
  2. Answer the two multiple choice questions.
  3. Then, we try to figure out how to make you happy.

The more info you give us, the better job we'll do. Cool, right?


Sure. Why Not. I'll click here to take your survey!
I want to be happy.


Also, a number of you have asked if the articles we post are available in PDF form, so they can be more easily printed out. As of now, sorry to say they are not. But, since you've asked, we'll see about making that happen soon.


Oh, and thanks to the awesome folks at ServoCity for picking up the tab on this week's newsletter. If you're so inclined, you can show your appreciation by checking out their fine selection of products.


That's it, enjoy!
The Magnetic Amplifier
The Magnetic Amplifier
A Lost Technology Of The 1950s.   
Rugged, dependable, EMP-proof, and capable of handling greater electrical powers than either the transistor or tube, the magnetic amplifier is a simple device that can be built by anyone.
ATmega Learning Platform
AVR C Programming Workshop - Part 10
Moving Beyond Arduino.

So, now that you've seen "The Arduino Way" from the last episode, you're ready to move up to a more advanced 'Way.' This time, we'll convert Arduino programs into regular C programs that can be used with the Atmel official software: AVRStudio and the semi-official WinAVR and AVRDude.

The 785 Gear Rack Kit includes a multi-rotation Hitec HS-785HB servo which allows for up to 9.6" of travel when sending the proper PWM signal.


Constructed of both aluminum and wear resistant Delrin to create a durable yet lightweight assembly. This kit is perfect for steering setups and other applications requiring linear motion.
Practical JFET circuits
FET Principles And Basics - Part 2  
Practical JFET Circuits. Part 2 of 4


JFETs are low-power devices with a very high input resistance and invariably operate in the depletion mode, i.e., they pass maximum current when the gate bias is zero, and the current is reduced ('depleted') by reverse-biasing the gate terminal.
