DIY Projects

As something of a half-assed sort of apology for my ongoing lack of proper posts, I thought I’d share with you, the hypothetical readers I’m pretending to address, one of the reasons for my apparent slackassery of recent times.

The following pages aren’t intended to be a step-by-step guide of how to reproduce my results, although it should be possible to do so with them. They’re more of a story of how and why I built these things. I hope they’ll be at least a bit interesting to someone who doesn’t care at all to make electronics, and possibly encouraging for someone who’s just starting to try their hands at it, and is maybe a bit overwhelmed at the idea.

My Projects

Electronics Resources – These are some of the more popular sources for components, enclosures, kits and the like. Some sites for DIY Project ideas can be found on the “Links” page.

  • Octopart – A comprehensive shopping search engine for components. Type in a part number or keyword, and it will return a list of vendors and prices.
  • Digikey – Saying they have a decent selection is like saying hell is a bit toasty. It’s a massive understatement. Their site isn’t very conducive to browsing, so it’s best to know what you’re looking for.
  • Sparkfun Electronics
