  1. By adding just two MCU I/O pins, a standard LED can also perform as a light-detecting photodiode. Sometimes people forget that light-emitting diodes can also detect light quite well. They're usable in a wide range of applications as ...

  1. Using a PN-junction diode for temperature measurement usually depends on its 2 mV/K temperature coefficient. Conventionally, you must amplify and digitize this voltage with an ADC before you can use the value in a microcontroller. Less well-known ...

  2. In multiple-output power supplies in which a single supply powers circuitry of vastly different current draws, two perplexing steps are sensing the current that each output draws and deactivating the power supply in the event of an overload on that ...
