Learning Microcap 12!

I have to admit, this is the sweetest pieces of software since sliced bread ! it’s not a super easy piece of software to learn BUT DAMN ! It sure can do alot ! Over the winter I plan to learn and do lots of experiments with this software ! In the screen shot below, […]

SSR Project.

Been working on this project for a few months now, just about to order the pcb. After months of working on this, I have come to the conclusion that it’s much easier and less hair loss when doing pcb designs. However, to accomplish this near perfect “test” pcb, you need to make sure all pin […]

Jean Hiraga & MJE outputs !

Over the last few weeks I have been working on my Jean Hiraga amps, these are not the final boards but boards that work that allow me to do testing with. First test was with a regulated front end circuit, this is done by removing the 2 22v zener diodes on the board, and installing […]

MicroCap Simulation ?

Id like to first say special Thanks to Eddie from KissAudio, this guy’s youtube page is just “AWESOME” been watching his videos and learning alot! Hat’s off to this guy for doing his vidoe’s and teaching people things. Link to one of the videos he does that describes this post! I reached out to Eddie […]

Late Night Testing ?

Do breadboards suck ? ( yes ) I mean they serve a purpose, BUT they are so 50/50. Some times the parts in the pin holes touch and make contact, sometimes they don’t. Lastnight working on a long project of mine “The-SSR” and I had to check over the circuit may times to be sure. […]

Another Class A ( BJT ) Jean Hiraga !

On the bench this day, I have a Jean Hiraga amplifier its a amplifier with 30watt RMS /8ohm output. HOWEVER mine’s a bit different. Running higher bias and dual regulated powersupply setup. Achieving 60watts RMS output @ 35V rails along with 22v super regulated front end circuit. IN the pictures below you can see before […]

Testing Aleph Turbo SMD version 1.2

After months and months of testing my Aleph Turbo Class “A” amplifier. Went through a few revisions and test setups. No smoke on any of them BUT I did have a few mistakes on the layout’s & wrong SMD pad sizes, live and learn. One thing learning about SMD pcb designing is its harder to […]

Back to Untangle !

Well, I went back to Untangle, just can’t find any firewall on the market that I like. Been using Untangle for over 10 years now ! Picked up a Brand new Hp Dl20 Gen 10 box, with a Xeon 2224 with 16 gigs ram. At first the machine hated the m.2 slot, it ran fine […]
