  • Reuse vs ‘refuse’: A Hoover case study (EDN News)
    <p>I’ve written about the concept of “obsolescence by design”—products that are intentionally rendered prematurely obsolete by their manufacturers through technically unnecessary termination of associated software and/or services support, non-replaceable batteries that inevitably swell after a non-infinite number of recharge cycles, etc.—a lot over the years. But it’s quite another thing when corporate decree dooms something to the trash pile for a policy having absolutely <em>nothing</em> to do...

  • Brushed motors: Still a contender after all these years (EDN News)
    <p>The broad world of DC motors is divided into two basic categories: brushed and brushless. The brushed motor has been around “forever” and while billions of such motors in use prove it can work well, it also has many well-known drawbacks. These include brush wear, electrical noise, low-to-moderate efficiency, controllability issues, and more. Despite these shortcomings, brushed motors were widely used, as they were the only DC-motor option in most cases.</p> <p>The motor situation changed seve...

  • Redirecting dynamic indication segment to a separate LED (EDN News)
    <p>Many devices use multi-digit seven-segment LED indicators with dynamic indication. Usually they are connected to the ports of the microcontroller or to specialized driver ICs, such as the MAX7219.</p> <p>Sometimes, in addition to the digital indicator, separate LEDs are required. They can be connected to separate pins of the microcontroller, but you can also save pins. If the digital indicator has segments that are never used (for example, a dot in the rightmost digit), they can be redirected...
