Silicon Chip February 2017

Now in stock, the February issue of Silicon Chip Electronics Magazine. In this month's issue build an Analog Clock Driver with GPS Synchronisation. This unit ensures your wall clock or shelf mounted clock is very accurate, without the need to manually adjust the time every few months, the unit even works for Daylight Saving. The unit runs from 2 AA batteries and synchronises the time with the GPS signal every 44 hours. Also this month, build a Ultra Low Voltage LED Flasher, this unit requires just 0.8V and is ideal for small applications, when a low-voltage flashing unit is required. Only a few parts are required and the flash rate is also adjustable.

This month also includes the assembly details for the 200W Power Amplifier module, as well as how to drill and prepare the heatsink. Finally, the construction details for the High Power DC Motor Speed Controller from last month as well. All projects come complete with circuit diagram and electronic parts list.

In this month's feature article, a great look at autonomous flying cars, there has been a lot of discussion about these recently and this article looks at what is being developed and what is possible. Also this month, getting started with the Micromite, this article introduces some of the basic programming commands for this module, including switching and cycling the various output ports. This month's magazine also includes all the regular columns, including the Circuit Notebook, Serviceman's Log and Vintage Radio, providing stacks of great reading.
