In this episode, we start out with the idea of building a buck converter with a microcontroller. We realize that we’ve never built a buck converter before, so we go through our thought process live to figure out what we need to do. We built one buck converter each. Elias used a Bluepill and Oyvind […]
Cap Half Full - a Podcast by Elias Bakken and Øyvind Dahl
Cap Half Full is a podcast experiment where we talk about electronics design. The hosts Elias Bakken and Oyvind Nydal Dahl get together for informal chats about different things in electronics.
We started out with the idea that each episode should last only 30 minutes. But we quickly forgot that rule…
We talk about a custom NAS build that hooks up a screen and buttons to an Odroid, Øyvind has been developing for nRF52-something and finally we discuss some basic electronic stuff that we ought to know.
We talk about the new Arduino Polenta and how DisplayPort over USB C might be implemented. We also talk about the $42 Etepon scope vs the $3500 Siglent SDS5034x scope.
This time we discuss debugging circuits, both simple and advanced. And we talk about 3D printer electronics.
Elias and Oyvind met up in Spain to record their first-ever podcast. Are USB circuits hard? And what makes an oscilloscope expensive?
