USB PIC Programmer : PICKit2

Microchip's PICKit2 is much more comfortable,reliable and powerful than the other programmers that we can find all over internet. It is a USB based ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programming) programmer. Since it is a first release, Microchip published all the resources of PICKit2 public, which includes hardware schematics and all source code of softwares used. Through this any one can add features, fix bugs and modify source code. Documents and other supporting files of PICKit2 are available at Microchip's Website. We have simplified [...]

Panasonic Eluga Power

Panasonic has returned to the European smartphone markets with the release of the new Panasonic Eluga Power. Panasonic has now come up with a narrow frame which enables them to pack a  1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, NFC technology, 8MP camera with full HD (1080p) video recording) Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and 5-inch HD screen in an amazingly thin 9.6mm. This narrow frame technology along with the back cover slanting in, makes it look much smaller [...]

Inside a Crystal Oscillator…….!!

A crystal oscillator is an electronic oscillator circuit which uses inverse piezoelectric effect, ie when electric field is applied across certain materials it produces mechanical deformation. Thus it uses mechanical resonance of a vibrating crystal of piezoelectric materiel to create an electric signal with very precise frequency. They have high stability, quality factor, small size and low cost and this makes them superior over other resonators like LC circuit, ceramic resonator, turning forks etc. This image show a 8MHz crystal oscillator commonly used in microcontrollers and microprocessors. Although [...]

Biodegradable Transistors made from Human Body !!!

A team of researchers including Ph.D. students Elad Mentovich and Netta Hendler of TAU’s Department of Chemistry and The Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, with supervisor Dr. Shachar Richter and in collaboration with Prof. Michael Gozin and his Ph.D. student Bogdan Belgorodsky had developed a new generation of  nano-sized technology that are both flexible and biodegradable to replace silicon in the field of semiconductor electronics. Researchers have integrated cutting edge techniques from different fields of science to create protein based [...]

Asus Memo 370T

Last January, Nvidia and Asus came up with a product that may change everything. Now the tablet in question has been identified as the new Asus Memo 370T which is actually an upgraded version of the 7-inch stylus-supported Memo tablet Asus debuted at CES 2011. The then showcased tablet ran on Honeycomb and utilized a dual-core Qualcomm 8260-1.2Ghz CPU, while the much awaited 370T will come with Ice Cream Sandwich and houses a Nvidia Tegra 3,even though the actual speed [...]

3D Printing Technology or Stereo Lithography

3D printing technology or Stereo lithography is the process of printing  3dimensional figures by the method of layer deposition. 3D printing is achieved by employing additive processes, where an object is developed by laying down successive layers of material. Three Dimensional Printing requires Rapid Prototyping (RP) for the creation of the functional parts and tooling directly from a CAD model. Until now, 3D printing has been extensively used for building moulds/ prototypes for industrial applications and numerous other places. With the advent [...]
