As system designers search for power efficient signal conditioning components, they may find that there are very few ICs available under 100 μA supply current and even fewer that include a small package variant.

The brightest blade in the world. Fluid sound effects generated in real time. Any colour, changeable on the fly. If you want to know what it feels like to hold a Lightsaber, this project is the closest you can get today.

Harvesting energy from non-conventional sources has received an increased interest as designers look for alternative power sources. Even though the power is usually harvested in small amounts, it is adequate for various low-power applications.

No I2C interface with that sensor? No problem. Program a PIC chip as an I2C slave device for custom sensor and I/O interfacing. Here, we use three DHT22 sensors on a single I2C interface.

In the systems where custom sensors are required, it's imperative that the designer quantifies the environmental, mechanical, electrical, and magnetic parameters of the entire system so that a sensor which meets those operating conditions can be selected.

Whether for cooking or reflow soldering, a thermocouple is often the best choice for a high temperature sensor. The MAX31855, a PICAXE-08M2, a serial LCD, and a few lines of code will do the trick.
