Editor in chief

Michael Dunn is editor-in-chief of EDN, and has been messing with electronics almost as long as he's been walking. He got his first scope around age 15, and things have been going downhill ever since. Scopes now vie with wine racks, harpsichords, calculators, and 19th century pianos for space. Over the years, he's designed for the automotive, medical, industrial, communications, and consumer industries, as both freelancer and employee, working with analog, digital, micros, and software. Since 2000, he's run the TekScopes Yahoogroup, now with over 5,000 members. He was previously editor-in-chief of Scope Junction: http://edn.com/collections/4422580/Scope-Junction-blogs

Nixie clock: Tearup

  • Teardown: A better Chinese 12V adapter
  • This teardown isn't suited to a hobby magazine. In fact, it's perfectly suited to EDN, where we can critique the design to some extent, and raise awareness of potential problems with Chinese manufacturing.

  • Teardown: A better Chinese 12V adapter
  • Well, I do find it interesting. But I'll take your advice for the bench supply I'm currently planning. I'll start with a Meanwell offline PSU for the initial conversion, and open it up for a look first. The comparison will be informative.

  • The Shadowbox Suffusion: LED project #2
  • Thanks James. I haven't dug deeply into LiPo care & feeding yet, so that's good to know. Can you point to a good manufacturer's reference guide?

  • The Shadowbox Suffusion: LED project #2
  • For a strip this short, the more efficient solution would have clearly been to rewire the strip to put all the LEDs in series, bypass the resistors, and use a high-efficiency boost converter LED driver...

  • How long should T&M gear be supported?
  • Interesting idea. Good luck :-} And I suppose they could leave what they consider to be "secret" proprietary code as binary chunks... Still...I'm not holding my breath.
