    Can GPT-4 Revolutionize PCB Design? Exploring the Possibility of Automating Footprints and Schematics Creation from Datasheets

    Hello everyone, I wanted to share an idea that I have been thinking about regarding the use of GPT-4 in automating the creation of electronic components footprints and schematics for PCB design applications. As many of you know, creating footprints and schematics can be a time-consuming process...

    My LCD 16x2 turns on but doesn't show the white squares neither changes the contrast.

    Hello. I'm making a voltimeter-amperemeter using an atMEGA328P, L7805, LM358, LCD 16x2 and some other components. The problem is that even though the LCD turns on, it doesn't show the code or at least the white squares it should, and when I move the potentiometer that goes with it it doesn't...

    How can ı see parallel RC circuit effect on feedback line

    I want to observe the effect of the parallel RC circuit on the feedback line in the circuit shown in the image below, I even expect this added structure to provide a decrease in the rise time, but I could not create it in the LTspice simulation, how should I proceed? Since I don't know the...

    My first ESP32 Dev board design

    Hi everyone, I am relatively new to designing schematics and PCB's and have only ever done simple circuits up until now. I have tried my hand at designing my very first ESP32 based Dev board. I know that these can be bought for fairly cheap already, but wanted to have a go at actually designing...

    How to get correct graph in this Pspice circuit when simulate it ?

    Hi I am studying a dc dc converter model. My friend drew this circuit and got this graphic. I added his circuit and graph . But I draw same model , same numbers for resistors capacitors v pulse source ,inductor, diode but my graph is very different. Actually my V pulse source looks like doesn't...

    How do I combine these two electronic circuits into one schematic (for project)?

    I started the basics of PCB and doing schematics around 6 weeks ago in my Computer Engineering Drafting and Design class. We used EasyEDA online tool to create the SCH and PCB for our assignments/activities. Our project now is to combine the circuits that we have made before into one system so...

    How do I combine these circuits?

    We have a project coming up in my Engineering Drafting and Design class and I don't have much idea yet on how to accomplish it. We are tasked to combine different circuits to design one complete device. Then we need to of course make the Schematic (and simulate it), as well as creating the PCB...

    ExpressSCH Netlist Error Regarding NetNames

    Hi, I am having a hard time figuring out how to fix this warning. It says that that symbol '0v' is connected to a net with two different NetNames. It refers to the other symbol located on the upper right which is 'Vpp'. It tells me that I need to change the name or remove the symbol at all. I...

    How does this four-pin reset switch work?

    Hello, I am studying a schematic, and am not sure how this reset switch is supposed to work: I cannot find any other switch that uses this symbol, and it just looks like all of the pins are shorted to ground. I don't understand why/how this switch works on the actual board. Is anyone able to...

    Can anyone help me identify what this symbol is? Still getting familiar with reading schematics.

    I was looking at a schematic and came across this symbol. I couldn't understand what it was or what it's being used for. I tried googling what I could. I found that G is generally used for generators and power supplies. I looked up symbols and didn't find anything close enough. Maybe this is old?

    Anyone has any idea what this means?

    Hi everybody, Anyone has any idea of what this means ? Here's the complete schematics: It's a line amplifier, and it could be a linear Pot of Fader... I don't know. Thank you

    DC Switching linear regular design question

    Hello, I am fairly new to electronics design (I have a mech e background), and am designing a board that requires dropping 12v to 5v with a large current requirement (up to 8A@5V). In a bid to save on BOM, I took a shot at creating my own design vs buying one off the shelf, using the...

    T.I. BLE USB MCU Programming Trouble (CC2540)

    Hello Everybody! I am trying to program/communicate with the CC2450 BLE IC, which is a transceiver/microcontroller. My computer is having trouble recognizing the device. It does not show up in Device Manager. I've tried the T.I. tools for trying to communicate with it. I've downloaded the BLE...

    Can I add 120V lines to the schematic as shown without frying anything?

    This is an electrical question, but I want to explain the application first: I have an LED fireplace that I'm putting in to replace a wall heater. I wired it to run through the wall thermostat, but when the thermostat turns the fireplace on it just turns on the lights, then you have to manually...

    MAX8815 DC to DC step up converter circuit

    Hey, I have a question regarding a schematic I made, which doesn't work. Maybe someone could help me out. I tried to make a board which would take a 1.5V Battery and turn it into 5V. I used this IC: https://www.mouser.de/datasheet/2/256/MAX8815A-1516131.pdf I oriented myself with the schematic...
