Jay_Diddy_B, a contributor on the EEVblog Forum built a great looking DIY Dynamic Electronic Load. He used LT Spice to model the design before it was built, the test result look quite good.

This HCCI Engine Controlling Raspberry Pi setup reads in 240,000 samples per second. I had never heard of an Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine other than a diesel that simply compressed the air fuel mixture till combustion although I guess that is what some of those cars from the 80 were doing when they would continue to run after the key was turned off? I had always thought that gasoline engines needed a spark plug.

If you have something that needs to be turned on and off why not do it in a unique way. This Sound-Activated Outlet project lets us use an Arduino to monitor for sound patterns and then control an outlet accordingly.

Shahriar from the SignalPath purchased a defective Agilent E4433B ESG-D Signal Generator as a teardown and repair project. Sounds expensive but this piece of equipment is an expensive piece of gear.

If you have a bunch of boards to program and test you have probably thought to automate some of the steps. Wiring all the connectors, hooking it up to a computer, programming in test firmware, running the system through a battery of tests and finally programming in the release firmware can be a tedious task.
