Last year I was hosting a meetup on designing circuit boards in Oslo. We designed a cool display using 90 LEDs! But, one of the first things that happened was this: Almost everybody got different errors in the software we were using; KiCad.

Lately, we’ve been doing something cool inside Ohmify. Check this out: It’s a workshop I decided to call Make Your First Printed Circuit Board. The idea is that the members go through the whole process of designing a simple circuit board:
I just brewed myself a cup of coffee. It’s morning, and I’m ready to take on a significant confusion. One that many beginners in electronics have. Have a look at the following circuit: The first instinct of many (including me many years ago) when trying to understand it is:
Can I comfortably fit the components for this project on my protoboard? That was the question I asked myself in my early electronics-building days. If I couldn’t, I regarded the project as “too hard”. Often the most exciting projects are much larger than the simple ones. It’s not that they are a lot harder. But […]
It’s Friday. And it’s the start of the weekend. For many of us, that’s a chance to carve out a big chunk of time to work on a project. Today, I set aside some time to browse the web. Looking for fun projects that people are building.
I like to tackle this one now and then. It’s a question that regularly pops up in my email. It usually goes something like this: “How do I choose components for my circuit?”
