Podcast Notes

  • Derek Brodeur
    • Applications engineer involved in writing control software for atmospheric and vacuum robotics used in the semiconductor robotics industry
    • Runs a YouTube channel called “The Current Source” where the primary focus is on electronics
    • What made you want to start a Youtube channel?
    • Favorite old Project that you have completed?
    • Projects that you are currently working on
      • David Kronstein is letting Derek borrow one of his high-speed Chronos cameras, so Derek is going to use a high¬†voltage capacitor and giant SCR to fry some electronic components and hopefully get some good footage
      • Contact bounce in high speed using the camera (and ways to mitigate bounce)
      • 16-bit flip dot array for demonstrations (instead of boring LEDs)
      • Build a TEM cell from aluminum scrap
