STM32F0 Simple Boost Converter

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 […]

STM32F0 Audio graphic spectrum analyzer

What’s cooler (than being cool, ice cold? no…) than having the ability to view the spectrum of audio?! A few things I hear you say, to which I also agree. On the other hand, viewing the spectrum of your music can be a fun and “wow factor” way to show off how electronics can do […]

STM32F0 Capacitance meter!

Yet another project with my STM32F0 discovery board… A simple capacitance meter! The value of capacitance can be determined by the time that it takes for a capacitor to charge through the resistor. A precise way to do this would involve using two comparators, 4 precision resistors (three for a precise biasing source and one […]

STM32F0 Frequency counter!

So we’ve finally got our second semester project briefs and it has been declared that we need to build a half duplex one direction communication system! Obviously, as its a project given by the university, it can’t be as easy as sending USART down a cable and receiving it, requiring pretty much no effort… at […]
