Elektor Electronics - EE Circuits Projects

One of the oldest and reputed Electronics Magazine. construction projects, computer, technology, computing, PC technology, microcontroller. Books & CD-Roms, E-blocks, Kits & Modules.R8C pages, RFID pages.


This was one of the Mags along with Radio Electronics that made me a better designer. Radio Electronics was my first favorite mag.

Elektor Electronics - EE Circuits Projects

They also have some of the issues for download. Some nice projects too are available with code for reference and experimenting.

They have a Forum for Discussion and Displaying your Completed projects. Even seek help when stuck with your project.

Then a Kits and Tools Store where you can buy the things you need to make the Electronic Projects, ..

I though it was time i made a collage for my old guru, then even i am getting older. I wish there was an Internet when i was young. Time to use my rusting Time Machine, Bye... Ananth delabs

Induction Heating - Cooker Project

Single plate induction cooker demonstration board  Uses ST7LITE09 and STGW40NC60WD (40 A, W series).

The design is entirely controlled by a simple ST7FLITE09Y0 8-bit microcontroller, which  provides the PWM driving signals, communicates information to the user interface, and  drives the fan and relay control to the plate feedback.

A single plate induction cooker with the ST7FLITE09Y0  PDF - Excerpt From Application Note above AN2383 Application note -

Put simply, an induction cooking element (what on a gas stove would be called a "burner") is a special kind of transformer. When a good-sized piece of magnetically conducting material such as, for example, a cast-iron frying pan, is placed in the magnetic field created by the cooking element, the field transfers ("induces") energy into the metal. That transferred energy causes the metal - the cooking vessel - to become hot.

By controlling the intensity of the magnetic field, we can control the amount of heat being generated in the cooking vessel and we can change that amount instantaneously.

Induction cooking functions based on the principle of the series L-C resonant circuit, where the inductance L is the cooking element itself. By changing the switching frequency of the high voltage half-bridge driver, the alternating current flowing through the cooking element changes its value. The intensity of the magnetic field and therefore the heating energy can be controlled this way.

Induction Cooker - STMicro AN2383

The +325 V DC link voltage is applied through a filter to the upper-side IGBT only when the safety relay is closed and the system is on. Components inside the dotted rectangle are the core part of the power stage: the L-C resonant tank is obtained by the plate (represented in the schematic by a spiral) and the capacitors on the left side. The resonant capacitor has been divided in two identical capacitors, so that the amount of current flowing through each capacitor is reduced by half, while the voltage to the capacitors remains the same.

Auto Fill Circuit for Laser Cooling Loop - Ethernet Data Logging

Here is an automation solution with a ethernet usage. The code and diagrams are also there. This is something that covers many aspects of engineering in one project. Try such things out to learn, only after you have mastered the basics.

"The Ethernet connection is based on an XPORT form Lantronics. Basically it lets you use a serial port to send things over Ethernet. A PIC microcontroller with an A/D converter digitizes the pressure, the pressure set point, the high and low pressure alarm points and the supply voltage (since everything is ratio-metric). "

LM3914 - Dot Bar Display Driver

The LM3914 is a monolithic integrated circuit that senses analog voltage levels and drives 10 LEDs, providing a linear analog display. A single pin changes the display from a moving dot to a bar graph. Current drive to the LEDs is regulated and programmable, eliminating the need for resistors. This feature is one that allows operation of the whole system from less than 3V.

LM3914 - Versatile and Easy use Display
  • Drives LEDs, LCDs or vacuum fluorescents
  • Bar or dot display mode externally selectable by user
  • Expandable to displays of 100 steps
  • Internal voltage reference from 1.2V to 12V
  • Operates with single supply of less than 3V
  • LED driver outputs are current regulated, open-collectors
The circuit contains its own adjustable reference and accurate 10-step voltage divider. The low-bias-current input buffer accepts signals down to ground, or V-, yet needs no protection against inputs of 35V above or below ground. The buffer drives 10 individual comparators referenced to the precision divider. Indication non-linearity can thus be held typically to ½%, even over a wide temperature range.

The Dice Game on 6802 Nano computer

SB-Projects - San Bergmans

A pair of dice is the first small example application I present here. The interface is nothing more than 2 sets of 7 LED's, arranged in the form of two dice. One push button per die completes the interface circuit
