    PCB section

    How about a PCB design section?

    Good

    The beginners section is a very vital part of this forum as it enables newbies to understand and also feel part of this family. Its really a good work and i would advise you to also include a space for technical materials and also a forum for meeting each other.

    i think a tutorial section on advanced
    electronics will be a great idea.

    All Change !

    Mixed feelings on this ...

    - RF (Radio frequency) -- Call this "Amateur Radio Comms" or something ?

    - Radio Controlled -- Call this "RC Modelling" ? - will this get confused with robotics ?

    - Electronic Books -- Attracting more copyright infringement ?


    I think there needs to be a rethink of the datasheets forum -
    Is it possible to have a read-only area where every datasheet is listed by part number and function for easy access (as done by all the manufacturers) and a forum for requests, when somebody finds a datasheet being requested it could be added to the main read-only area and the request posting could be deleted so only un-answered requests remain in the forum. Eventually, the read-only area could contain all the commonly used datasheets and, if well indexed, would be much easier and more compact than the existing system.
    Maybe give moderators write access to add datasheets, everyone else has only read access.

    Hmmm ... a forum for meetings ? (idea stolen from beryour) -- could this work as a notice board for events such as radio rallies and computer fairs ?

    The Forum Restructuring

    I share the same idea with lord Loo: "that a forum to discuss electonics related coding like C coding to control ports, Matlab, C18(or shall we put c18 in microcontrollers?) and other related EDA Softwares" should be put in place. I know a little of C/C++, VB and Basic(don't get me wrong,'am not a guru) but i dont know how to write microcontroller programms. So, it will be an advantage to novices like me who want to know more about microcontroller programing and other programing lamguages and their codings to ports.

    Hello ElectroMaster,

    I believe this is very cool and very much in place

    I think that RF Forums are ok and there is no need for a seperate Radio Control forum.
    I disagree with Chemelec, I think that Analoge and Digital Electronics should remain combined.

    A comparison...

    I`m happy about the beginners section.
    Just for some ideas, i wanna post how a forum in Slovenia is sectioned:
    (i think its broken up too much)

    Electronics:
    -analog
    -digital
    -microcontrollers
    -energetics (high power electronics)
    -carelectrics(not car acoustics)

    Home workshop:
    -projects(whole projects)
    -pcb making(toner transfer, photo, etching, drilling holes,...)
    -housing making(wood, alu, sheet metal,...)
    -where to get...?(manufacturers, shops,...)
    -servise(how to repair...?, servise manuals)
    -tools(drills, solder, meters, CNC tools,...)
    -software

    Audio, video
    -general audio
    -car acoustics
    -high end acoustics
    -TV, video, DVD
    -RF(ham, GSM,telecomunications)
    -antennas

    Other
    -selling, buying adds
    -chit-chat
    -science and technology in the world
    -sugestions
    -trash

    New struction

    Hi ElectroMaster, some suggestions:

    May be dividing analogic & digital electronics sections, each with its own subsection.

    But more interesting, what about adding sections on math and physics?
    Those are tools of great value for electronics that should not be ignored.

    Greetz. Best regards

    Yes I agree, the new forums sound great.
    I like the beginners section idea, a lot of us have been
    in electronics a while, but there seems to be fewer and fewer
    places a person new to electronics can get ansewers.

    I like the way they are catergorized, but i think still there's no place for POWER ELECTRONICS. What about a separate for digital and microprocessors.

    That is going to be interesting. I believe people that are ready to learn we definitely gain from the new intending forum.

    thanks alot.

    MCUs

    It would be great if the MCUs section will be further sub-divided into specific platforms. 8051, PIC, Z8, etc.

    information on repairs of dth receivers

    Hi,

    I think Technical & Service information on VCD,DVD players & DTH receivers should be shared along with data sheets of IC used & circuit diagrames.
