I was sick of trying to bounce between all the different electronics sites each day and missing out on handy stuff- so I present you Maker News (mkme.org) All the news- none of the junk 🙂
I finally got around to making a specific group for Machine Learning.
Since machine learning is a very niche topic I decided to Facebook group might be the easiest way. I also have all my machine learning files on GitHub.
I’ve been testing out tiny ML with edge impulse in the Arduino board and so far it’s looking promising but I won’t know till more later this week how well it works.
Join here: Machine Learning | Facebook
This USB powered temperature controlled soldering iron actually works pretty well. The TS 800 might be a better choice but this is a lot cheaper and does the job just fine￼. I really like the non-temperature controlled USB soldering iron’s that are much cheaper but they don’t have temperature control and this one seems to do the job just great
In this video we set up a portable electronics lab anyone can build anywhere￼
Eric wanted to have a portable electronics lab inside of a pelican case in this video we start setting it up with all the components needed for a portable electronics lab with soldering equipment oscilloscope meter and much more.
Many more tools can be added to this kit depending on the use case.
If you want to focus more on repairs then you’ll probably want to add more tools to this kit instead of the diagnostic equipment. Amor feature filled oscilloscope might be handy to have as well.
Stay tuned for part two of this video covering All the equipment in much more detail will test us in future episodes as well.
Eric likes to have a basic script for all functions to be built on for any project this basic script usually includes a temperature monitor in a display function for an HMI interface in this video eric shares the full code and instructions on how to set up the basics of raspberry pi pico micro python code￼
Eric found out his raspberry pie pico can get stuck and not boot anymore in this video he shares how to wipe the flash memory using the nuke file which completely erases anything you’ve done and un bricks your raspberry pi pico if you have a bricked raspberry pi pico this video is for you
Eric ran into issues with his raspberry pi pico where sometimes it wouldn’t run the main dock pie script this turned out to be related to the I2C initialization a simple delay in the set up of the code seems to have solved it and micro python works normally￼. If your raspberry pi pico won’t run main.py then give this a try just add a delay a little sleep function in the beginning of your code and see if it helps check out the video for more information￼
