Hackaday Podcast: Curious Gadgets And The FPGA Brain Trust

In this week’s podcast, editors Elliot Williams and Mike Szczys look back on favorite hacks and articles from the week. Highlights include a deep dive in barn-door telescope trackers, listening in on mains power, the backstory of a supercomputer inventor, and crazy test practices with new jet engine designs. We discuss some of our favorite circuit sculptures, and look at a new textile-based computer and an old server-based one.

This week, a round table of who’s-who in the Open Source FPGA movement discusses what’s next in 2019. David Shah, Clifford Wolf, Piotr Esden-Tempski, and Tim Ansell spoke with Elliot at 35C3.

Essential Equipment For Your Soldering Workbench

Essential Equipment For Your Soldering Workbench

Soldering is the perfect hobby for anyone who wants to make their own electrical equipment – you’ll learn how it operates, teach yourself to diagnose faults and even save money on buying completed products!

This is the core skill in assembling your own electronics. It requires a slowly-paced, methodical approach which becomes equally relaxing as it is engrossing. You’ll love the feeling of plugging in a device you’ve just put together from intriguing and seemingly magical components – one of the great little pleasures of soldering, especially when it works first time!

Even the most long-standing electrician was once in a position of not knowing what was required or involved in soldering, so don’t fret if it’s new to you. We’re going to look at what’s needed to get started in soldering and what each item does, so you’ll know exactly what to put on your soldering workbench and get started in making exciting electrical gadgets!

Giant Board packs Linux into the size of an Adafruit Feather

@groguard designed the Giant Board which runs Linux in the form factor of the Adafruit Feather:

board-e1543421093991

The Giant Board is a super tiny single-board computer based on the Adafruit Feather form factor. We always want more power in a smaller package and the Giant Board delivers!

There are always those couple of projects that just need a little more power, or a different software stack. With the release of the ATSAMA5D27C-D1G, its made linux possible in such a small form factor. Listed below are the specs and current pinout of the board.
