Thank you for listening to The Amp Hour for another year! See you in 2017!
Isn’t it possible to use a NE555 to generate the PWM signal or do I get something wrong?
Chris Gammell says
It is! The reason I didn’t mention that is because the friend I was talking to needed to be able to go from 0 to 100% duty cycle, which isn’t truly possible without additional circuitry.
Mark Baker says
There are designs out there that claim 0->100% duty cycle. https://sujjad.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/pwm-generator-using-ic-555/ being one such. When I have moved and unpacked my setup I will play with this circuit. Packing early is organised but so annoying.
Why not try ‘The week in science’ – http://www.twis.org/broadcasts/
It’d be so nice to have time indexes for the various topics mentioned. That way, I could only listen what I’m interested about. Unfortunately, nowadays I’m too busy to listen the whole show, so I just skip the eipsodes. Keep it up, guys!
Paul Henry says
These are by far my least favorite recurring guests. Please be more wary of falling into the “too many podcasters” trap of spending the first 15 minutes talking about nothing of consequence other than life as a podcaster. And what’s with all of the breathless NPR host whispery vocalization — maybe it is just me but it drives me up the wall!
