Recently I've been wondering if I could actually build a cpu, I knew about the attiny and thought that I might try to build it without any chips. (Ambitious I know) I'm pretty experienced at soldering and coding and have been doing both for 17 years so I reckon I can manage it. Does anyone happen to know the whereabouts of any schematics for the attiny 25/45/85? If you do please tell me, it would be a great help.

Is there a schematic or a compact way (some compact sound system without all of the cd players and radio and all of that other fancy stuff, my input is just a 3.5mm jack) of creating an equalizer like below? I just thought up a cool project, but no schematics on the internet...

In this schematic, http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/analogsynth_new/WSG2010/schematicpg1.gif At the top middle there is a symbol "ODD" that is enclosed in a circle. Can anyone tell me what that is? Im assuming it is the audio jack, but i may be wrong, Thanks

I found this schematic in a 1947 manual on vacuum systems and I cant translate the indicated DPDT switch into something I understand. Can anyone sketch a quick pinout for it, preferably indicating what goes where on the schematic. This goes along with my other pirani gauge question.

I am making an emp but I broke the Disposable camera's chip. So decided to make my own circuit, but it doesn't work. I am attaching my schematic. I know I am missing something, so please can anyone tell what it is? or just direct me to a simple schimatic? I have transistor... transformer and everything form the chip. I just don't know how to connect them.

Can anybody get me a an amplifier schematic which can drive an 8" sub-woofer, two 8" Speakers and two tweeters? Actually my neighbor built an amplifier which is driving the same mentioned above . He resides in the nearby apartment still when he uses that amplifier i can feel the bass hear the treble and get the music to my ears sitting in my apartments. When i asked him the schematics he laughed at me and said that I am a noob of drove me out of his house, ARROGANT MAN. So please guys help me out in this regard. Thanks in Advance

Does anyone have a schematic for a stereo tube amplifier, I just acquired a large quantity of tubes, a tube tester and some other assorted electronics from my grandfather. Ive always wanted to make a nice tube amp, now all i need is direction. It will be another 2 weeks or so before I can actually pick them up and start testing them so I was just trying to find some schematics to get me in the right direction. I figure this may even make a nice first instructable as long as im not completely lost in the schematic. Thanks smoke

Hi, I saw this cool thing on Make; an instrument that picks up remote signals and makes noise. This link shows the original product: http://www.moonmilk.com/2010/02/04/instrument-a-day-4-remote-interference/ I hear the product is a telephone amplifier with a coil as an input. I would like to know if there is a schematic for the amp that someone new to electronics could work on. Its really interesting stuff. Thanks
Question by phillyj | last reply
Hello, I have drawn this simple schematic and I am wondering if someone could look at it and see if it will work. The thing I am not sure about really is if the transistors are connected in a way that will make them do what I want them to. This circuit is designed to be off, then come on and stay on with a single push of the momentary switch, then turn off and stay off if something blocks the light to the photo-transistor for an instant. ****** I have updated the schematic based on the comments I got. The decision was that the circuit would come on by itself without a push of the momentary switch. The new schematic is the first picture, the old schematics are the second and third pictures. I have a breadboard and some parts for the project this circuit will be used on coming in the mail, so I can start trying this out when it gets here. But for now I am still not sure if this is right, I don't have much experience with transistors. Any advice is appreciated.

I am an amateur building a solar powered bilge pump and was wondering if the schematic I made would work. The idea of the schematic is that if switch 1 is open and switch 2 is closed, the 5w solar panel will charge the 12 volt battery. And if switch 1 is closed but switch 2 is open, the 12 volt battery will power the 2A bilge pump. My main question is which way will the current be flowing. I have drawn some arrows to show which way I think current will be flowing. Please correct me if I am wrong. Also tell me if any components need to be flipped around. All answers are appreciated, Connor

I know the wiring for the loops themselves are correct but I am wondering if I did the master bypass and LEDs correctly. This is a 5 channel/ loop switcher for guitar or audio effects loops, The master bypass is supposed to negate the other loops even if they are on. Thanks for the help! P.S. the squares with the 9 dots are all 3pdt switches

Will this work? it's based on https://www.instructables.com/id/SCYCBXQFD80BUXI/Basically, what it should do, is when I aim the IR emitter (TV remote) at it, it'll go off for a few seconds. The goal is to hide it and piss off whoever is watching TV, and changing channels.

I'm working on a project where you press a normally open button that lights an amber light (represents Master), this button then lights other buttons that are lit green (represents Slave). The accompanying schematic should be fairly clear and also repeats this question. What I want to have happen is when you press one Master, the corresponding Slaves light. Release it and the board goes dark. Then if you press one of the other buttons in the Slave category, it becomes the new Master and lights up other corresponding buttons. I'm sorry if it's confusing. The project is a flow chart of sub-subsystems that when completed link to a larger tab, then that tab links to another set of subsystems finally culminating to a final result.

Im just a noob here and everything, dont know all that much about electronics and stuff, but the idea of making all these little gadgets (like an altoids tin ipod you can use anywhere) seems really cool, interesting and most off all very useful. Do you guys have any ideas of how I can start to assemble a basic knowledge of like circuits and stuff and of electronics. Not adavced stuff to start off, just like if I wanted to make something like a porximity detector, or like a microphone bug (thatl send what it hears in one room to a reciever in a diff room), basic stuff like that.

I know about Ohms law and some of the terminology on electricity and electronics (i.e. voltage, ohms, coulombs). What I am in need of is a way to kind of put all of the knowledge together to help me better understand the way circuits work and how to follow and read schematics. I understand that this question is quite broad, but any help would be very appreciated. I thank anyone and everyone that can contribute knowledge to help me better understand. I am a beginner and I have taken quite an interest in electronics.

I am trying to work with a 22V10 PLD, but all of the software I could find either don't take schematics, or cost money. Is there any software out there that will program my PLD with a schematic I drew, that is free and easy to use? And don't even think about suggesting VHDL or CUPL or anything similar, because it's not happening. Any other help though is much appreciated.
Question by FloppidyDingo | last reply
There are a dozen or so free electronic schematic capture and layout packages around (as node-limited versions of commercial packages). I've briefly tried a few (PCB Elegance, 123 and a couple more) but is there one which is head and shoulders above the rest? I'm looking for good library search and easy component placement and routing. Standard generic symbols as well as specifics, and autorouting and placement. Also ability to save as GIF or JPG. What would other users recommend? Incredible - When I was in electronic design for a living (a fair few years ago) my company spent hundreds of thousands of Pounds on a schematic capture and routing package and the SparcStations to run it on.

Hi, for the past couple of months, I have been searching for a RGB LED mood light controller, but so far, all of them require a PIC(Programmable Integrated Circuit). The problem with this is that The PIC, the PIC Programmer, and the IDE for some reason wont work together(even though they are all from the same company). So recently, I thought that it would be easier to just make a color mixer, that controls each of the RGB channels individually with a potentiometer assigned to each. But, I can't find a simple one. So I made my own, but I would like to ask the Instructables community if they think it will work. Thanks ahead of time :) Here is the schematic:

I have been looking for a led buck converter schematic for quite some time now and i haven't been able to find one that suits my needs. i have a single 3 watt led that i believe needs 700ma to run. My whole purpose for the converter is to dim the led so it will have a longer battery life. i'll run it off of some rechargeable batteries that i can remove. Also i would like to be able to purchase most of the parts fairly easily. The requirements of the buck converter. -Compact -Battery powered -Dimmable -Capable of powering a 3w 700ma led This is a link to the data sheet of the led: http://futurlec.com/LED/LUXEON_3W_WHITE.shtml Thanks in advance

Question by arob2665 | last reply
I love the forrest mims books. they are very informative, however, many of his schematics which i have attempted to assemble have failed. His schematics are the only ones i have trouble with. I have had many successful circuits with schematics from the internet or other books. For some reason though, i just cant put his together. The circuit i am currently having trouble with is the "Dual LED Flasher" From his book "Getting Started in Electronics". There is a picture of the schematic below. Note how he explains one set of resistors and not the other. Also how do i connect R1 and C1 with Q1's collector? Same with Q2? I have put this circuit together about 10 different ways and my results are always the same: two LEDS which stay on constantly. this is very frustrating. any advice would help. Please be very specific. it would be especially helpful if you could put it together successfully (on a breadboard, that is) and take a picture.

I really need help learning to read schematics. I can do circuits really easily but I can't read the diagrams and it prevents me from making a lot of stuff. Eg. I would like to make this project but I can't read it! https://www.instructables.com/image/F4THFYGGDT4GHE7/Parts-and-schematic.jpg. I prefer when people go "put the red battery wire to the green __ wire" ect. I think it would help if some one wrote out that for this project and I would be able to line up that with the diagram. Any way anything you can do for me will help: it's more than I could do before :). Thanks in Advance, Blenderking
