Testing power supplies and batteries requires current loads capable of sinking large current and dissipating substantial amounts of power. A simple but accurate current load can be built using just a single op amp and a power MOSFET...

Frequency source feeds entire lab
Frequency source feeds entire lab
12.22.2020 Circuits

Plumbing a laboratory with a standard frequency makes a lot of sense if the lab uses multiple frequency counters, spectrum analyzers, and other frequency-dependent test equipment. Rather than spending time keeping all of the instruments' oscillators in calibration or buying expensive, high-precision oscillators, you can use the circuit...
