A good (prefer SOIC) PAL *and* NTSC encoder chip?
Hi, I have been looking and lows and highs for a good (in price as well) chip that can encode data into PAL and NTSC signals? (TI has a bunch of decoders but not encoder.) I...

Is 1Mhz fast enough to do FAST PWM?
Hi, I am able to successful produce sounds with fast PWM with 16Mhz speed. But can't seem to do it with 1Mhz. Is 1Mhz fast enough or must be at least 8Mhz?

Interested in doing a simple voltmeter with 7-segment LEDs
Hi, I know how to measure voltage, via the ADC. But how does one measure [software wise, using an ATMEGA8] the current or the ohm? What kind of wiring [not the 7-segment LEDs...

MC34063 DC-DC Step Up/Down IC question
Hi, This is quite an old chip. Rather use MCP1400, but, I can't get one from anywhere. Mouser.com has it, but you have to buy 1500 pcs, not single pieces. So, I am thinking of...

What's the max current an AVR can take?
Hi, For example, ATMEGA8? In general, AVR can take up to 50mA? I see the ATMEGA88-20PU spec. It says: "“ Active Mode: 250 μA at 1 MHz, 1.8V 15 μA at 32 kHz, 1.8V (including...

differences between SOIC-16 and SOP-16 format?
Hi, I have been looking at the pins of the HC595 in SOIC-16 and SO-16 formats. They practically physically look the same. I know that the IO pins are the same, of course. I am...
