Thank you very much for the additional points.
That is indeed an insightful way of looking at it without accounting for stress.
PCB layout isn't just something one can do off-handedly. It should be well-thought of in order to avoid those hazards.
Thank you very much for your reply.
Yes, I was pertaining to the pervading concept of stress, it being the most common culprit.
I wanted to know if there were other reasons I wasn't seeing.
Surges and ESD count as electrical stress.
PCB flexing counts as mechanical stress.
Fake components does seem like a good culprit. It is sometimes tempting to neglect that. Thanks!
I personally think the underlying algorithm one uses to program for embedded applications is most important, not the actual language used (in spite of each one's ups and downs). Thus, the dilemma of programming language preference simply becomes a superficial test of one's aptitude in semiotic analysis.
Happy New Year!
Maligayang bagong taon sa lahat ng aking mga kababayan!
Fröhes Neues Jahr alle zusammen!
Merry Christmas to all!
Maligayang Pasko sa lahat ng aking mga kababayan!
Fröhe Weichnachten Deutchen Leute!
メリクリスマス！ haha kana
That sounds really exciting. I salivate over David Jones' dumpster finds (EEVblog) and it makes me wonder how commercial equipment in Australia are just thrown away like that.
The only place I know of in my local is in Quiapo/Raon, Metro Manila, Philippines.
Hello Ahsan,I think this textbook is an excellent resource for beginners: "Solid State Pulse Circuits" by David Bell.Explains every detail concisely and perspicuously.Regards, Justin
How about "Probability of human survival in Arc Flash exposure"hehe... just kidding. wanted to make your day.Regards, Justin
Oh, one more thing - you might want to check the caps too. They are also prone to damage more often than you'd think. Check if any of the tops are bloated. If they are, then they need replacement.Alsooooo... are you using a temperature controlled soldering iron? Those are SMTs and using a poor soldering iron can augur more misfortune than you'd expect. Unless you're really skilled in assembly, it is recommendable to get a temperature controlled one (even the cheap ones are still better in spite of the faster tip oxidation).Regards, Justin
