Welcome

Welcome to 3d Electronic Circuits .com.

We are going to be bringing some new concepts to the world of electronics here and are also going to be covering the more general electronic theories and circuits.

My basic theory for building true 3d electronic circuits can be found on “The Theory” page.

I am also hoping to be able to provide you with some electronic designing and project kits.

Keep checking back as this site is brand new and it does take some time to get some content up.

Vintage Electronics

I will be adding a store for vintage electronics here soon. I am in the process of setting things up now and you will be able to hopefully find the things you are looking for and I may even set up a special page for you to sell your things as well.

Recover that wasted light energy.

Hi guys.

I know I have not posted in a while and I have something in mind that I think could be useful for large buildings to recover some of the costs of lighting.

LED’s are now all the rage in every kind of lighting situation and can save some serious money. But what about getting more use from that wasted energy and reclaim some of it by using solar cells installed in the lighting fixtures and any other areas where there is available light and collect it for use to add back to the power system to save energy.

Solar cells are getting more cost efficient and also just more efficient in the amount of energy they can reclaim so why not put this new technology to use and use it inside of buildings to reclaim energy and save money?

Just a thought. Why not recycle this wasted light energy and make things more efficient?

Micro Meteorites and Mars

There are two great hazards of prolonged space travel that come to my mind. One is micro meteorites and the other is cosmic rays.

The chance of micrometeorites causing damage will increase immensely because of the amount of time the vehicle is in space and traveling and be a huge chance for mission failure as they are not talking of any built in safeguards that I am aware of. There also will not be advance warning for the small particles as radar will not be useful for small particles and they also do not have satellites in place along the route or at Mars that would allow them to choose a path that has has the less space debris.

So what can they do to protect the astronauts and the spacecraft from objects traveling 30,000 miles an hour or maybe even faster? Not much. These objects are traveling so fast that they can pass though thin objects like nothing.

I think the best they can hope for is to come up with some kind of sealing system that would react with the vacuum of space and make a temp repair until a major fix could be made. This could be some sort of membrane that is part of the hull that is filled with a substance that would harden and seal the hole until a better fix could be made.

I have no idea of what could be used myself but I am sure the scientists know.

Also the electronics systems should be modular and compact and entire systems should be placed in one area so that the chances of it being struck would be lessened and you could also have redundant systems in different locations so you could switch from a damaged system to a good one.

All the sensors and switches and keyboards could still be remotely placed but you would want your main brain to be in a protected area instead of spread out over the entire ship.

Just some thoughts.

Space Travel On The Cheap

It just occured to me that we could explore space on the cheap by landing on comets and meteorites that were passing close enough to earth to catch. This would provide long range travel without the need for fuel and would allow us to send probes off in every direction.

We could also build a space platform that had a rail gun on it to launch probes and use as protection against objects on a collision course with us.

Remote Power Generation

I had this idea a few years ago. You can use a stream source. wind, or other kind of rotational force to generate electricity and pipe it remotely to drive a generator.

The best part is there are no electric wires needed as the generator will be where you need it and not at some remote location.

This is another one of my ideas that I think is practical but there has been no interest in it ,except for maybe someone to try and steal it, so here it is .

Read more about it in the Power Generation area.

Resistance / Reactance

In electronic circuit analysis we must know some things about the circuit itself.  One of these things is it’s resistance or reactance.  Reactance is basically resistance in an AC circuit.

The equation for resistance in a series circuit is to simply add the resistor values.  R1+R2+R3…Rn.

Ohm’s Law

Ohm’s law is the foundation for all electronic circuit analysis.  The law in words, states that the current in a circuit is directly porportional to the resistance in the circuit.  The formula is E=I x R.  This is the voltage in the circuit is equal to the current times the resistance.  From this we also get I=E/R and R=E/I.

From these equations we can get a whole host of other equations as we need them such as P=I^2 x R and so on.

For instance if we have a 12 volt battery with a 100 ohm resistor the current in the circuit is .12 amps or 120 milliamps.  The power consumption in this simple circuit is 1.44 watts.  Although this is the most basic circuit, we still gain a great deal of knowledge from it using Ohm’s law.
