Running the numbers on the maximum possible surface power density in the laser spot, I get 1.59KW/sq m, which is only about 50% more than the power density of tropical noon desert sunlight. This makes the observed discharged vanishingly unlikely to be a electrooptical effect as unless its highly frequency sensitive or requires a coherent light source, such behaviour would be common knowledge, and a known design issue for above ground HV electrical distribution systems.
I had problems with PIC32MX (not MZ). Like UART libraries only existed for uart 1-4 if you tried using 5/6 thent you are on your own. It was a copy paste and some register modification to make it work.It's not that the chips aren't used, but that most users only use a small proportion of the functionality.Really? I'm the *first* to discover that the channel 9 ADC input wasn't actually hooked up internally to the ADC input mux? How could this not have been caught in testing??Quite possible. There are many PIC24 and dsPIC33 and all the other chips which I guess never used by anyone. There are some well documented parts, like the 16F and the 32MX bigger, but if you step down from that road, it is like no mans land.
I've never had any issues with undocumented silicon bugs on PICs, but tend to stick to a fairly small subset of chips in each range. More common are errors in header files etc. which can appear like silicon bugs until you figure out what's going on.
Besides, this soldering station is designed so that you can extract the live soldering tip and replace it with another (that comes to temp within 7 seconds) to fit whatever job is needed.
Curious that the spikes only appear on positive signals - it's almost as if a power-supply was dropping out.
