Howdy I'm Sean, I live in central texas.

I am a laser physicist specializing in fiber optics and solid state quantum sensors.  I have a Ph.D. in Physics and Bachelors degrees in Mathematics and Physics. 

My primary hobby is electronics, which helps me with my research.  I am trying to learn more about programmable logic and FPGA's for projects involving automation and machine learning.

Hello everyone,

I'm Lex. I'm currently in Southeast Texas. I have been lurking on these forums for years and viewing Dave's youtube vids for longer without saying much. Up until now I haven't been able to say much partly because I had issues remembering an old account made somewhere in Fall of 2014 and getting a verification email for this new one. That has all been resolved now.

I have also been on other forums that perhaps other members on here might have been on (yahoo groups or group.io for HP/Agilent, R&S, HP85). My day job involves chemistry and working in a Medical lab. My interests are in troubleshooting, figuring how stuff works, and developing methods or devices. Currently electronics is a "hobby" for me but it seems like I take it more seriously than that given that I'm TEA (Test Equipment Addicted), continue to self teach myself on electronics and RF knowledge, and overall invest more of my time on the subject matter. I have family members who are interested in entering this field. I also have an interest in weather.

My test equipment is mainly towards late 80s to early 90s and involves RF/Microwave tech from HP and Tek. Equipment such as HP 8340B, 8673B/D (yes 2 but the B model could be parted out temporarily), 8563E/EC (yes I have 2 but the EC one has a broken RYTHM module, using its parts as a control against suspected boards and modules), 8561B, 5343A, 436A, 438A, 8481/2/5A (3 power sensors), 9816 controller, 9121/2C drives (2 floppy drives), and for newer HP gear E4419B and MSOX3104A w/ all options. For Tek I have a 2467B, TM500 w/ SG503/4 (2 sine wave gens), TM501, PG506A, 2xPS503A, FG501A, and a newer AFG3252 (not C). For Rohde & Schwarz I have a SMHU 58 (really good signal gen.) There are others I forgot to list like the Hakko vacuum gun and soldering iron (forgot model #), Fluke 87V (the most useful thing any kind of electronics person will ever own) or accessories to the equipment above.

Hi buddies I'm from Vietnam and to be honest I suck at electronics and electrical circuits in general. I'm in my 4th year at Hanoi University of Science and Technologies but I hardly know what a transistor is like. Look I'm not kidding I really don't have an idea about it. I've been bad at physics since I was way back in 11th grade but somehow I've gone this too far. So I came here, to introduce myself to you guys, that I've watched a few videos of Dave, and would like to snuck into the world of electronics, and seek for a hand from someone who may, perhaps, help me get used to these electronics things. Get me know what a transistor is, and how to properly use an analog oscilloscope. Thanks so much, in advance. Cheers brothers!!

Just Call me Bubba   ;D
Medically retired. Been into electronics Hobbying since pre teens.

Only had 3 Quarters left to get my Associates Degree from ITT Before I had to give up to take care of my wife (RIP).

Getting back into electronics. Almost have my Bench together. Lost all my class notes and reference library due to circumstances beyond my control..I will probably be bugging everybody to help refresh my memory and fill in the gaps....
Licensed Ham operator....
Half Baked...

I have posted questions in the past on "Ham" boards and got the typical reply of
Google it (If I could find it on Google after searching for several days I wouldn't have been asking..)
with the general attitude of
"I don't know but I am superior to you anyhow"
etc etc etc...
Hopefully things are a bit different here

Hi from the Free State of Bavaria, Germany!

I'm a manufacturer of (opto-)electronic instruments from the sensor to the user software.
Every time I look around I can learn a little bit more even it's basic knowledge.
So here from me a big THANK YOU to Dave and all contributors of this forum.

G'day,

I'm Greg from "the sticks" in Queensland, Australia. Been away from EE both hobby and professional for several DECADES!! Trying to start back at hobby level again and stumbled on this great forum by accident looking for old test bits to re-equip.  My mind boggles at degree of change since i was last involved. Lots to learn from scratch.

I guess this is where we make our first post  :)

I've been a test equipment dealer for the last 21 years, so I've had a chance to play with pretty much everything I used to drool over back when test and measurement was a part of my work. IMO these are the coolest tools on the planet. Several google searches over the years have led me to this forum, so time I joined. Some very bright and clever people here.   :-+

Am heading for retirement in the next year or so, when I can go back to doing this for pleasure. Am in the process of repairing/refurbing some instruments I will want to have on the bench, fixer-uppers picked up along the way. Just finished a Wayne Kerr 6425 a couple weeks ago. Now working on an Anritsu MS420K (almost done) and an HP 4192A (success eludes me as yet - may be beyond my skill set).

Cheers.

Hello everyone!

I'm new here, so first things first.

I'm a young spaniard freshly graduated in Electronics Engineering. I'm very interested and working on brushless motor control with STM32 microcontrollers. I'm also starting to set up a little electronic lab which will allow me to test things at home as I will not be using the university equipment anymore.

Hope I'll find good people in there and share my (little so far) knowledge with you!

Hi everyone! I'm David Wong. I'm a computer engineering, graduated 10 years ago from Universidad Nacional de Trujillo, in Trujillo, Peru. All my whole life I've been attracted by computer and electronics (since I was a kid). But most of my adult life I have been programming and managing several projects (non-electronics related). But now, I discovered the Internet of thing(tm) stuff and I felt in love (again) with electronics and circuits. I bought a oscilloscope (Hantek DSO5102P) a function generator (Siglent SDG1025), a multimeter and several canned circuits (like HC-SR04, arduinos, fpgas, etc). I'm very excited to build things with can be controlled over the internet (I found the ESP8266 projects sooo cool).

I hope write very often here, give a hand on whatever I could know and also, ask for help. Thank you for read this post. Count me as a friend.

Hello everyone,

I'm a junior (3rd year) undergraduate computer/electrical engineering student at the University of Virginia. I've been lurking these forums for a while now, and have really enjoyed watching Dave's videos (they are a great way to learn during "off-hours").

I'm currently interested in just learning more in general about electronics, though I'm starting to look at how I would get a bit more serious about things-right now I'm taking a look at the videos listed at http://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/electronic-loads-cp-cv-cr-how-to-implement/

There's a real trove of valuable information here... hopefully I'll be able to contribute to that one day (:

Hi, I'm Liam, I'm a second-year student studying EE and physics at Southern Methodist University

I'm here more for general insight from people much more experienced than me, particularly on how to stop using arduinos as a crutch in many of my projects.

Hello, I'm Jeremiah from USA, Kansas.  Been active in electronics in one form or another.  I've built a few boards like MegaSquirts for automotive electronic fuel injection and some other projects like an Arduino plasma torch height controller...  I'm looking to dive deeper into EE and this looks to be the best place on the internet to ask and learn it looks like.  I'm looking at getting a D1054Z scope at some point and maybe a few other items that are maybe required for a proper lab.  I currently have a Fluke 88 and recently purchased a DSO138 for a simple single-channel scope.  I look forward to learning more about electronics.

Hello, new member here. Electronics/electrical/instrument tech (depending on who I'm working for at the time).

I'm a massive Avometer collector too, so if you're ever selling one, let me know :)

Twinpeaksr from USA.  I spent 12 years doing rugged electronic hardware design for off-highway equipment, and recnetly 4 years doing system engineering design work at the same company.  While I love system engineering work, I am trying to rekindle my hardware design years and stumbled across this forum as I researched getting a scope.

I spent most of my design time on displays and telematics hardware design, test and development, with a background in digital logic (FPGA, CPLD, ASIC durring my BSEE) and RF/High Speed communication (MSEE).  Also started learning SysML and system modelling recently as I completed System Engineering Grad Work.  I hope to start learning software, always been a weak spot for me, but I have several FPGA dev kits I hope to use.  Look forward to checking out the knowledge that is shared here.

Thanks!

Hello everyone!

I'm Carter and I'm currently working at PRS guitars helping design their guitar tube amplifiers. Loads of fun and I am learning alot.

Joining this forum because I want to build a couple of amps at home and therefore want to pick up a scope and signal generator for the basic testing of things. If you have any suggestions that would be great!

I am probably going to pick up a Rigol 1054z, because after reading this forum that seems to be the overwhelming bang for your buck scope. So if any of you guys have a used one you are looking to part with I am in the market! Taking a break from college getting my EE degree to pursue learning this stuff so money is still a little tight.

Also if you guys have a recommendation for a good budget friendly function generator I would love to hear about it.

Thanks and happy to be a part of the forums!
Carter
