Due the limitations on wordpress.com, I just decide to create a webpage. Now you can follow my projects here: www.jechavarria.com. Here you can find the two post of this blog and all the new projects that I’ve got in mind!!
Thanks for visiting this blog and I’ll hope see you in the new location.
I want to start a serie of brief articles describing the components that I usually used in my electronic designs.
The first one is the DS28CM00 I2C serial number. This device is an electronic registration number that gives you an unique 64-bit serial number over I2C or SMBUS interface. This 64-bit serial number is factory lasered, so there aren’t two devices with the same number.
I use this component in a railway application, to identify the PCB’s mounted in the system. The pinout and the typical connection of this device is shown here:
Some days ago, I receive a Digital PaddleClock from Dangerous Prototypes. This is a great page to visit, they have a lot of designs and ideas. Also, three days a week, they give some free PCB’s to their readers. After a lot of comments in their page, I finally win a coupon so I can change it for this PCB.
