Quick news.............

03/03/14 - Great news, I've built some more CSI Bench PSU CC Mode Kits. Available from stock direct from my shop here.


01/03/14 - I've got two new projects to announce, a couple of relatively small projects so I'll be running them together (yes, I'm a glutten for punishment!).

Project 1 - I'm designing and building a Voltage Simulator/Calibrator, a hand held device to use in the workshop. It'll be battery powered and consist of a small graphics lcd, keypad and potentiometer. It'll be Arduino powered (what else!). All going well I may sell this via my shop. Photo below shows my testing of the LCD I'm proposing to use in the design.

Project 2 - I'm assisting in the design of an ethernet card for the famous Sinclair QL computer. This one is being done purely for the fun of it. My first computer was a ZX81 back in the day, so getting to grips with the QL is very retro. Photo below is the internals of my dev QL.
