Scopemas Tree

O-Scopemas Tree! O-Scopemas Tree!
Thy traces so unchanging;
O-Scopemas Tree! O-Scopemas Tree!
Thy traces auto-ranging;
Not only seen when Triggered here,
But also if I Hold or Clear.
O-Scopemas Tree! O-Scopemas Tree!
Thy traces so unchanging!

ADC Topology

Today in class we talked about successive approximation and other topologies of ADCs....and I liked it. When we did an example problem using the TI MSP430 I think I was the only one who already knew what that meant. What's wrong with me?

I split my build into multiple files for the first time ever. FML.

MechE after all?

I might have just let my ego get the better of me in an eBay bidding war:

The money I dropped to win a STIG helmet will follow me to the grave. But now that I think of it, this is the most MechE thing I have bought in a while. So while the price was so wrong, it feels so right.

Resistor Socks...

I just plucked a resistor out of my sock. Ugh, I'm such an EE.

As the resident EE, I figured I should offer up some virtual EE goodies...

Come to the dark side.... we have MOSFET cake...

Introductory Post

As a mechE, I am dedicating this blog to all those misguided engineers out there who need somewhere to confess that they're closeted EEs. This is a safe place to confess your darkest electronics endeavors.

Sample post:

Today I went to Radioshack and spent $20 on op-amps, capacitors, and resistors to make an amplifier and filter circuit for a frequency-sensitive strobe light. Man, I'm such an EE.
