Another cool plug-and-play EDA tool with circuit template library for EagleCAD - thanks to open XML (aforementioned)

Modern fault-tolerance design for aircraft does little to help when big parts start falling off. This study proposes a design approach / philosophy for keeping things aloft during broader system failure.

By far the coolest phone / tablet app I've come across. EveryCircuit is a simple SPICE circuit design tool with a slick touch interface, shows voltage and current animations and more. This is no doubt the look and feel of circuit design tools for the future. Also could be a fun, easy way to…Continue
Nice IMU project spotted on Dangerous Prototypes with MEMS gyros and accelerometer, Cortex-M3.
"The IMU is supposed to be high-end, implementing state-of-the-art data filtering, best low-cost MEMS sensors available and many features to compete with commercial IMUs used in…Continue
Nice series of CadSoft Eagle tutorials from HackADay
I have yet to work with Eagle but am now motivated to do so on account of the aforementioned improvements…Continue
For those into board design, Eagle is a nice free (for non-commercial use) option which has, until now, lacked XML structure. Eagle will soon support importing & translating from other formats among other productivity improvements. Until now, this compatibility issue has prevented myself and likely many others from using Eagle as a primary PCB design tool. I believe the DIYD crew…Continue
