    Laptop internal sd-card-reader.....possible upgrade/mod ?

    Hi all, I have an MSI GE65 RAIDER 9SF laptop https://uk.msi.com/Laptop/GE65-Raider-9SF/Specification Amazing laptop with 1 x sata 3 + 2 x pcie 3 slots, but all that's letting it down in my opinion is the slow sd card reader. Of course i can use a bulky external sd card device which i have, but...

    Short-Circuit Protection for 3-6 Volts AA Batteries

    I’m looking for a circuit that can protect 3-6 Volts AA Batteries when a short-circuit happens. When the short-circuit happens, a second circuit (LED blinking) must be triggered and the batteries must be protected. The goal is that the LED won’t stop blinking until the short-circuit is undone...

    How to draw a drill hole on the PCB board?The problem is weak. Please don't laugh.

    I am a rookie, just started to learn PCB drawing, using Altium Designer 13. I had a problem: I had to drill a hole in my board, just a physical hole, without electrical properties, not the kind of pad. At first, because I didn't understand, so. 1. I drew a circle on the schematic Drill Drawing...

    PCB design The problem of wiring line width on the pad, can it be different?

    As you can see, the thickness of the power line, blue line and red line on the circular pad is different. Is this feasible? The line to the left of the right square pad and the line above it are also different in thickness. Is this OK? I heard that this situation will reflect under high...
