1  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Capacitor Zener Voltage converter on: September 23, 2014, 02:16:43 am
Is there any kind of modified version that can be categorized in an acceptable reliability? to reduce the sudden spikes.  it is just for my experiments.
2  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Capacitor Zener Voltage converter on: September 23, 2014, 01:58:56 am
Hi All,

All of us are using micro controllers, small home made circuits. Most of the time I'm facing to power some of my small devices based on micro controller and also the 433Mhz transmitter receiver modules which are permanently connected in house. I want to ask you is it safe for the circuit to use simple zener-capacitor converters to produce 5V,12V from the direct 230V AC line? will fluctuations in the line affect my circuit working like if im powering to a RF receiver in this way? suggest me a good way of designing this kind of power converters which will be reliable and safe to my devices.

An error of +/- 10 ohms is acceptable. and also the range can be reduced to 0-40M

Hi All,

I want to make a multimeter with good precision in measuring resistance mainly, Actually it is not used as a multimeter, I want to measure the resistance of some components in both polarities, It must be capable of reading from 0 ohms to 60 M ohm. And also the main design thing is to inject very less current to the device we are testing since they are very sensitive device. Any Ideas to make it with an Arduino and a display. ??
5  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Interfacing with thermal printer on: July 31, 2014, 12:17:29 am
I'm working with a billing software which is working on a local language, not English. So software is based on java, I have found a printer in adafruit "", does this kind of printer will work for my project?? does this kind of thermal printer have any dependency on languages we are printing?

6  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Charging Current calculation of battery on: June 29, 2014, 02:29:52 am
hello Experts,

I want to know how to determine the charging current and voltage for rechargeable AA batteries. I want to know about NiCd, NiMh, Lead-Acid batteries(6V, 12V) charging currents. Now I'm having a 1.2V, 850mAh NiCd battery, I was designing a circuit for that I need this charging current.

Thank you.  smiley

I have checked the link and that is comparatively affordable kit price.
What kind of material can be used for the wings other than the blasa wood?
Can you suggest me some basics about flying the RC planes, and also the design aspects to be considered.

Hi All,

I'm planning to make a complete DIY RC plane. But I'm new to aerodynamics, RC plane material and the design aspects. I need your guidance to make it successful. What i need to know are:
What kind of material is best for making the plane?
comparing the price and ease of availability which is better material, I planned to make it with thermocol, sticking two layer of thermocol and placing some strong material for rigidity in between? Is it possible? Are thermocol good to make the air foil shape?

What should be the minimum rating of the BLDC i need to select?
Which will be the cheaper and better power source for the electronics?
Help me to get a proper design of the wings, shape, fuselage?
Where should i put the motor? in the fuselage or two motors below the wings?? which is better and easy?
what all kind of settings should be included to get a flexible control?
And also about the propeller.

I would like to continue this discussion till my design complete, so people who want help for this subject can refer from this, so kindly put your suggestion.  smiley
Thank You
9  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Want to convert some ray data to required format on: May 18, 2014, 01:38:32 am
Hello Experts,
I need a help, I have the attached file, in that I have a huge amount of 15-bit data arranged in different rows of 32767. This is a simulation result. So I want to convert each of the rows to 77 bit data by just append the same row content to the end of that row itself. Its very urgent, can anybody help?
10  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Analog Input Readings on: May 15, 2014, 06:12:30 am
Post you circuit and the code you have tested, then only can debug the problem. There is no need for any interface or Pull-Ups for analog accelerometer. You can simply connect to the analog input and read and print continuously in a while loop to test the sensor.
11  Topics / Device Hacking / Re: car fm radio antenna hack on: May 15, 2014, 05:35:58 am
 Always go for the simple best way to achieve your goal. I suggest you to build a simple stereo FM transmitter and connect it to the phone and transmit it. Use a low power FM transmitter, you can get very cheap single chip FM transmitter, which will works well with a small number of discrete components outside the IC.

If you use two 9V battery parallel there is a chance for working. But 9V battery are having less Ah, so better to use rechargeable cells. with > 700mAh.
13  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Potentiometer as voltage divider on: May 08, 2014, 01:15:41 pm
ya, I'm sorry  it was a mistake, when i drawn the circuit speedy it happened so. Thanks for the correction.
14  Topics / Robotics / Re: External power crisis for my robot on: May 08, 2014, 12:41:57 pm
Use a battery with more 'Ah' rating, preferably rechargeable cell.
15  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Potentiometer as voltage divider on: May 08, 2014, 12:33:12 pm
From the question i think that you want to give some voltage randomly to the ADC from a 9V-12V supply, so you want to reduce it in the range of 0-5V, so you can use the following circuit, the diode is a 5.1V zener to protect your arduino from over voltage.
