I discovered this tiny oscilloscope kit the other week. It’s a DSO138 by JYE Tech – £30 from Amazon(UK) or less than £20 if you can wait for delivery from China 🙂It took me less than 2 hours to build and worked first time! I’ve still got some soldering skills lol. It comes in twoContinue reading “Tiny Oscilloscope kit based on STM32F103 ARM microcontroller”

IContinue reading “Replacing the white LED stylus target light on Audio-Technica AT-LP120X”

Most of it is old/scrap components that were lying around on my desk – only the (socketed) 555 and MC14526 counter/divider actually do anything; flashing the LEDs along the edge. I can remember making it at work during quietContinue reading “Flashing LEDs with a 555 timer – and not a lot else”
