  1. Closed: Re: Enable circuit for backup battery boost converter

    is the enable high or low?

    assuming enable is high, connect two resistors in series from 8V source to ground
    connect the collector of an NPN transistor to enable
    connect base of said transistor...
  2. Closed: Re: Help needed; Check of PCB and some other questions

    which processor, FPGA, or other digital IC are you using?
    the answer is likely in the data sheet, buried in how the device handles the clock

  11. Closed: Re: thought experiment to understand measuring equipment.

    60,000 V through a 1000 ohm resistor to a current meter and back to the
    60,000 V return is essentially 60 A

    if the meter is a voltmeter, then the current will be about 60,000 V / 100Meg ohm (?)...

    Closed: Re: how to make diy inverter

    your best bet is to go to the laptop manufacturer's website and
    buy a new charger

    you know it will work
    it will be faster and easier
    and, it is likely that in the long run it will cost less

    Closed: Re: how to make diy inverter

    i don't think that's a good idea
    you charger is designed for 120V AC, not a stepped square wave.

    what is the output voltage of the charger - the voltage that goes into your laptop?

  14. Closed: Re: What's the most durable PCB type and finish for exposed application?

    put the board in a box and add an environment appropriate bulkhead connector
    use an appropriate mating connector on the other part
