18 bit ADC uses PC's serial port: 09/27/2001 EDN - Design Ideas /  A PC usually requires a plug-in ADC card to process analog signals. However, with the circuitry in Figure 1, a PC can communicate with an 18-bit ADC through its serial port. The port provides both positive and negative power supplies as well as control signals. IC1 is an 18-bit MAX132 ADC with a serial interface.

Casio QV 200 Digital Camera Cable: Lose your cable? Build it yourself and save $29. Fits many QV models.

Centronics port generates narrow pulse widths: 08/02/2001 EDN - Design Ideas / Variable-pulse-width signals are useful in control circuitry for positioning and holding purposes in robotics and power electronics. Frequently, the need arises for pulses with width less than 1 msec. Delays less than 1 msec are usually not available in most programming languages, so generating such pulses can be a problem..

Simple method tests cables: 10/17/2002  EDN - Design Ideas / Engineers have long known how to test a cable for continuity by simply connecting all conductors in series and checking with an ohmmeter. This method is sometimes impractical, however, because it cannot check for short circuits. The method shown in Figure 1 solves the short-circuit problem. Connecting LED indicators at each shorting loop provides a visual indication..
