Having changed my degree title from Electronic engineering to Electrical and Electronic engineering, means that I have to take some power modules. While I don’t find mass power transfer particularly inspiring (HVDC links, the grid and power networks blah blah blah), I find small power conversions pretty interesting, the low power stuff that enables us […]
My current university project is based around non destructive evaluation using ultrasonics. I’ve been delegated the task of trying to design a suitably cheap (cheap being my speciality 😉 ) low end ultrasonic evaluating system. This involves designing the high voltage supply, the output driver, a high speed amplifier system AND the whole digital domain […]
I just want to say a big thank you for everyone reading my blog! Whether its my sections or tutorials that you’re reading, its great to see people with such an interest in electronics!
Having already designed the microcontroller in a simulation environment, I wanted to take it to the implementation phase. I’d previously shown an implementation of a timer in simulation so keeping the same test program, I wanted to make sure it worked in implementation! Firstly, I decided to replace the simulation ROM and RAM for IP […]
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to do some proper VHDL but today (after MASSIVE advances with the Phobass these past few days), I’ve decided to write a miniature version of the HMCU. I say miniature in the lightest sense. Features: MISC architecture featuring 9 Instructions 16bit processing capability (22bit program word length) […]
