Hey there, I'm Yannik - currently quarantined in Germany (I happen to live here, too). 18yo with interest in electronics engineering (which is 99.5% what I'll study once I finish school). Hobbies include a bit of homelabbing (I'm not really into programming though, I can code, but it's far away from being my favourite activity).

Hello, I'm a long time fan of Dave's EEVBlog videos. Interested in simple electronics for past 30 years. Reading this forum has made we want to learn more.

Interests:
  • Analog circuits. Digital is super useful, but completely uninteresting to me.
  • Audio.
  • Guitar amplifiers, both solid state and vacuum tube
  • Linear power supplies, low ripple power
  • Op Amps
  • Measuring and characterizing all of the above

Looking forward to learning more and sharing what I learn.

G'day,

Luke here. I am just starting to get into all things electronics, with no specific areas of interest. I have a general knowledge but just want more!
I have always been interested in how things work and throw nothing away without tearing it down first. I recently purchased an Arduino but was not satisfied with the high Level programming, and plug n play shields, that just magically work. I wanted to know more about what was going on in the background. This lead me to purchase an Attiny85, so I can learn as much as I can with out being overwhelmed with an excessive amount of peripherals. Currently I am working on a Digital Music box in Assembly, using as many features of the chip as I can.

I certainly don't have the knowledge to give any form of answer on here, but will have a few questions along the way.
Gerken.

Hello everyone. I'm a physicist that ended up taking the plunge and going more into engineering. I used to work doing R&D with optical equipment for telecoms applications and later on some LIDAR as well (lots of analogue and digital electronics but also wafer level stuff). Now I do research with thermoelectrics (bulk and thin film) and the effects of thermals on PV systems (cell and panel level).

Ive been a big fan of the youtube channel for a long time and finally joined the forum recently.

Hi, I figured that it would be appropriate to introduce myself before I start nagging you all with silly questions.

My name is Tadej, 24, from Slovenia, currently (still, haha) doing my undergraduate studies in CS. Till now I've been dealing mostly with software, but I have always been interested in electronics, and in the last couple of years my work has shifted to embedded software with a smidgen of FPGA design.

I've dabbled in hardware design from a software guy's perspective (that is, I limited myself to the digital domain), but I got tired of 1's and 0's :)

I have to admit that, at the time of writing, I'm really not that proficient in EE theory and would need to brush up even some of the fundamentals, but I'm quite content with being RTFM'd as long as you point me to the M in question.

My interests, which I hope will also become my hobbies, are analog synthesizers and ham radio.

I'm Marco from Switzerland. Did an apprenticeship (4 Years, 50% school, 50% practical) in electronics (got my diploma 1997).

Worked in different places in electronics and informatics since then. Worked in R&D for precission laboratory scales, as electronics specialist for brain researchers, built high performance gaming PCs, serviced medical and dental devices, built, tested and serviced controlers for industrial machines (mainly steel pipe production) and am now making sure that coffee machines can be produced and tested.

I know a little bit about everything but not too much about anything. So there will alsways be someone who knows better :)

Ok yes, and I like to scroll trough kickstarter to find the most ridiculous stuff on there  :-//

Hobbyist electronic instrument builder here, hello everyone from Seattle!  I have a CS background, dabbled in electronics in college but I didn't catch the bug until 20 years later, when I started to build synthesizer kits.

Been lurking for years, and enjoying this forum as a resource for learning.

Hi I am David (Sapo),
My background is medical, and hobbyist electronics; however as a senior lecturer (I am pretty long in the tooth) I had the opportunity to design biopotential amplifiers (EEG not as easy as it looks in a noisy environment, try measuring microvolt signals when the surgeon using diathermy/cautery, is applying hundreds of volts to fry your signal source), "pain machines" a form of high voltage constant current device (with sample hold for measuring peak current) used on rat tails and human pain threshold experiments, automated experiments using microcontrollers, and mass spectrometer interfaces (bringing 70/80's tech into the 90/00's.
I thank Horowitz & Hill for my education, plus all the technicians and fellow academics I have worked with (No formal electronics education!).
This is a great blog I hope to learn from all your experience.
Thanks

Bob from the States,

Hi everyone! My background has always been electronics, I remember taking everything I owned, that had anything to do with electronics, and pulling it apart; literally pulling it apart. I never put anything back together, just wanted to see what it was made of and how it worked, lol.

Since then I've studied electronics in the military, worked within research and development companies mostly. Now it's just a hobby, I tinker around with modeling, Arduino and computers.

This seems like a great place to pick someones brain, so I may reach out to some of you in the near future........

Thanks,
-Bob

Hi Folks,

I'm Greg, I'm 28 and from the Isle of Man. Over the past few years I've been working in Ireland as a hardware design engineer within the automotive industry, and most recently as an evaluation engineer within the field of Ultra-Wideband semiconductors.

I've been a fan of the EEVBlog videos since the early days, they've been really insightful and are always a pleasure to watch, a great laugh on occasions too!

See you in the forums :)

Hi folks,

I'm Sascha, 36 years old and from Hamburg, Germany. My day job is in the IT business doing administration / development and project steering.
In my spare time I like to do stuff with electronics (AVR/ARM projects, ...), woodworking and things related to astronomy like playing KSP or doing astrophotography and simply enjoing family life.  :)

I've been watching the EEVblog videos since the beginning but never really came arcoss the forum since today.

See you!

Howdy from Texas,
   My name is Brian and I've been around electronics since as long as I could remember.  My dad used to work on old TV's at home and that's my earliest memory in the 1970's.  He did electronics for the military for a career.

   I have a B.S in Information Systems, hold an Amateur Extra Class rating, and have done a few open source hardware projects, mainly Arduino-Centric.  TinyTimer Kickstarter edition was probably the most complicated thing I'v designed and built.  It's essentially a single channel PLC with a rudimentary interface.


  Biggest lesson learned?  Real Estate costs money.  Keep things small to manage costs.

  I was designing on Eagle until Autodesk bought it..... I've since moved over to KiCad and am working on a NodeMCU based IOT project.  I'm at the very early stages and in the process of rebuilding my work bench.  After TinyTimer I took a hiatus and changed out the house I was living in.  (Sold one house, bought another and remodeled it).  That took way longer than expected.

  I'm on here in hopes to learn more about circuit design and to encourage others along this path of dark arts.  I always feel like I stumble through my projects looking everything up as I go.

  I greatly enjoy Dave's YouTube videos btw.  :)

Hi. I am David from Malaysia. I studied electronics engineering when I was a university student, but only had a short career in the industry. I am a lecturer and I joined this forum to learn more from like-minded people interested in EE. Electronics is more of a hobby for me nowadays. Learning from Dave's EEVBlog Youtube channel, and other internet sources keep me up to date in a way. I hope to chat more with you guys on EE matters.

Cheers.

UPS... I´d made a thread :-[

Hello people.
Let me introduce myself:
I am an electronics technician, working in the metrology & calibration department of the national institute of aerospace technique (Spain)

I´m also a electronics & R/C freak (Arduino, Raspberry, flying wing, FPV drones, helicopter,....)

I've been following the forum for a while, but I had never registered.

If I can help someone with manuals, calibration sheets, specifications or anything useful, please let me know.

Greetings and thanks for the forum.
