Servocore 2-motor walker circuit
There is an advantage in using continuously active PWM signals. The main reason is that the asynchronous frequencies of the PWM core and microcore can sometimes result in a forshortened PWM pulse. The Sevo reconizes this as a command for a new positions and twitches toward that position. This makes the motion somewhat jerky on the original...

The signal from a synchro receiver or a variable resistive cam follower (potentiometer) is boosted by operational amplifier U1, whose output swing is limited by back-to-back zeners D3 and D4. The signal is then applied to operational amplifiers U2 and U3, which drive the gates of Q1 and Q2 respectively. The npn transistor (Q3) is a fast current li

A servo contains a small motor and gear box that rotates a shaft to a precise location and holds it there. This photo shows a typical servo with its top removed. The position of the shaft is based on a digital signal. Most servos rotate through a 180 degree arc while delivering a good bit of torque. Three wires connect the servo to its...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...

In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
