Area 50 is a virtual warehouse of projects and experiments
stored in boxes, some successful and some failed. Each box may contain physical
prototypes, special components or samples, and other random items associated
with the project. Click on an item to see its details. This freeform
presentation will facilitate the rapid presentation of interesting projects
without cumbersome drafting and writing overhead.
This information is intended for experienced hobbyists - not beginners.
The information may be incomplete or even incorrect and readers
are assumed to have sufficient knowledge of the areas covered to evaluate the
suitability and veracity of the information. Many projects will have kernels of
information that are useful for other purposes and those will be mentioned at
the end of the page. Over time, the projects will accumulate on the
shelves and an index will be created. For now, they're just presented in the
order they are boxed and stored. The contents of these boxes will vary over
time, especially the ones that are collections of small, similar devices.
Be warned, these are not necessarily polished projects! Area 50 is
for inspiration only.
This is just an opportunity to dig around in the techlib.com IP storage
electronics calculators that I find handy. Double-tap the one you want and it
should fill the screen.
