Hey!

Check out these tools I made. I designed these circuit debugging tools because I have all these simple needs to switch, drive, amplify, buffer, toggle, and level translate electric signals, but I never had tools that were convenient enough to help me. So I made some! Check them out:

Here's what I have so far:

• H-Bridge Driver
• Level Translator
• ~20A N-Channel FET
• ~17A P-Channel FET (with integrated N-Channel gate drive circuitry)
• Precision Instrumentation Amplifier with customizable precision gain and precision 2.5V virtual ground for positive and negative inputs
• Push button and toggle switch
• Push button with schmitt trigger output
• 40AMP 110/220VAC relay
• Triac with heatsink and integrated zero crossing opto-islated driver
• High Voltage bi-directional voltage detector
• Microcontroller programmer protector: 5V accidental over-voltage auto-clamp (3 Amp current shunt)

I'm thinking about offering these as kits for beginners and professionals to use for debugging. They can also be used as standalone minitools that can be used like LEGOs (tm) to build complete designs. What do you guys think?

I am open to making more if you guys think there is something missing from my list.

Thanks!

Re: Mini Tools For Electronics

Hello Arunava7 -- Any recommendations for some tools that you would like but aren't mentioned? Perhaps you could explain the type of electronic projects you're interested in - such as, audio, home automation, gardening, fishing, etc. Your input would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Mini Tools For Electronics

Actually I'm open to everything...here we dont have a good designers and the reseachers have to do everybit with their own hands...sometimes it becomes hectic to design an inverter, rectifier or circuits like mosfet drivers or as simple as power supplies.

Re: Mini Tools For Electronics

I come from a different age, a selection of capacitors with croclips, so bad decoupling caps could be bypassed. A 1 KHZ astable in a probe so a square wave can be injected into amplifiers and radio sets for signal injecting. An audio amp with a loudspeaker or a crystal ear piece for signal tracing. Also a small piece of double sided PCB with wires soldered to each face. This can be slipped in between batteries in a battery powered set to find the current, or to if the wires are twisted together to provide an earth for ones meter.
