Keeping the Quarantine Blues at Bay One Design at a Time

Micro:bit v. 2 and The Retrofit and Recycle Challenge

You know…for kids. – Norville Barnes (The Hudsucker Proxy)

This week’s Fish Fry podcast is dedicated to being indoors and fighting off quarantine boredom for kids and adults alike!  Phil Hutchinson (element14) joins us to discuss the BBC micro:bit v2. Phil and I discuss the evolution of the micro:bit, how this new version differs from the previous version, and how the element14 community supports this unique learning platform. Also this week, we check out element14’s Recycle & Retrofit Challenge that might just help you keep the quarantine blues at bay while reducing electronics waste and upcycling vintage electronics. Finally, we check out a powerful new kickstarter campaign called the Solar Cow –  the World’s first social project delivering real individual data of impact.

Configure the backup voltage in a reversible buck/boost regulator

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

This application note looks at a reference circuit design using Maxim’s MAX38888, which provides a supercapacitor-based power backup in the absence of the system rail by discharging its stored charge. The backup voltage provided by the regulator from the super cap is 12.5% less than the system rail when the system rail is removed. This note explains how to maintain the backup voltage within 5% of the minimum SYS charge voltage.
