The best PCB design software.
There's an old saying in the boating community, that if you ask 10 different people "What is the best anchor?" you'll get 15 different answers. Of course, the best answer is "It depends ..." Which brings us to this week's $64,000 question. What is the best PCB design software? Hopefully, it's what you use, but it could be what you would use if (insert reason here). Obviously, this is a matter of opinion, so let's hear yours!   

And, as usual, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, to our sponsors! Be sure to check 'em out!

That's It. Enjoy! 
Amateur Radio _ Not Just For the Nostalgic

It's no secret that amateur radio has been in decline for a while, hastened by the popularity of the Internet. It used to be an accomplishment to chat with someone in Africa or Japan. Plus, slow-scan TV was good for perhaps a frame every couple seconds. Today, all that's required for world-wide video and audio communications is a cell phone - not a room packed with powerful gear. I can remember calibrating my wall clock and oscillator circuits with signals from WWV at 5.0 MHz and 10.0 MHz. Today, of course, clocks with built-in receivers update the displayed time automatically.

Confidently Using Interrupts In Your Microcontroller Project

Once you've become familiar with using interrupts, they will become like the heartbeat of your microcontroller code, the regular rhythm at the core of your project. You'll find that they aren't intimidating and you'll wonder how you ever wrote code without them. You will start designing your project around the interrupt and find that this simplifies the design and makes development faster.
