When I work on projects, I usually run into the following problem when working with PCB design and code together: I set up a repository using git whose location is at X. This repository contains say, code. I later use a separate design program such as Kicad and start a design project whose location in … Continue reading Sync an external kicad project with a copy within a git repository
When making business decisions about what to have in a product, the decision factor is not binary whereby the decision is based on expensive/affordable among binary options but is a mix of various factors . The factors also depend on geographical location among other factors.

There are times when I would need to measure relative propagation delay characteristics of digital waveforms my scope. Usually i would resort to the use of manual cursors until I peeked at the measurement delay menu and wondered the meaning of FFR, FRF, FFR among other parameters. More so I did not find any articles … Continue reading Understanding digital delay measurement parameters
When probing a digital circuit, it is best to avoid long wires as may they form accidental antennas. I had a run in with this one when I quickly wanted to check a toggling signal on an Intel Edison. I connected it as below: The waveform I expected: But what I got: I then … Continue reading Minimising RF emmisions during circuit probing
