EVERYTHING FOR ELECTRONICS
A MORE DIRECT LINK
On page 26 of the August ‘07
issue, it is mentioned by Russell Kincaid
to go to the link at www.linear.com and
get a copy of the LT Spice sim software

CHARGED UP OVER
I thought the new “Green Power”
section in the August edition was an
excellent idea. I hope to see this
section in future copies. “Going green”
has never been a more timely and
important subject than right now.
I am currently studying fuel cell technology. I have stumbled across some
“how-to” articles from the mid-nineties.
I would love to see a current version of
this subject covered in Nuts & Volts.

a project to build a 3D laser scanner.
I have most of the hardware built and
am now working on the software side
of things. So, imagine my surprise and
relief when glancing through the table
of contents, I discovered the article
entitled “Introduction to 3D Scanning”

article? I was expecting an article about
the hardware and software required

future with more caution.

OFF THE RADAR
DOESN’T SEE THE CNC
I just received the July issue of
Nuts & Volts magazine. For the last
In the August ‘07 issue of Nuts
& Volts, I was surprised to see the
published Tech Forum answer to #6071
that stated that “Most all grocery door
sensors are PIR.” Maybe that is true in
Kansas, but in south Florida, most are
radar. Anyone with a radar detector who
lives in this area knows this is true. Many
