Age: 27

I've got a MSc in Electrical Engineering, and I'm currently a trainee at the Technische Universiteit of Eindhoven (TU/e) in a program called Smart Energy Buildings and Cities, where I'm doing a project with NXP Semiconductors.

I love basketball, bikes, outdoor life, travelling, photography, and - last but not least - reading.

Community moderator on Electrical Engineering since August 2012.

This a, b and c you get from the 4-wire interface? What signals can you actually access?

comment Easy-to-use Antennas for beginners
Note that GSM and GPS work in two different bands and therefore need different antennas.

comment What are the failure modes of resistors, inductors, capacitors, diodes, transistors in conditions of overvoltage or overcurrent?
The problem is not the overview itself, which could indeed be useful. The problem is that it's been proven to be inefficient on a site with this format. See this example to get my meaning. It was initially on the main site.

This is going to become really broad, I'm not sure it's a good shot. Also, the effects are not always the same, as the resistor could fail as open circuit or short circuit as well.

What is Vbe_on of the transistor? Is it ideal (0)?

comment What is the difference between a pentaprism and a pentamirror?
Is there a reason why they have different shapes?

I don't love that MOS symbol, it's quite a lot of traits for just one transistor

comment Mosfet life expectancy?
If the manufacturer doesn't specify it, you may need to contact them. But don't assume you'll get an answer unless you're a high-volumes customer.

The last paragraph also seems to say: "Get closer", which is always good advice :)

Can you show a bit better your thought process?

comment Charger light circuit
Can't you upload better pictures? They're so much out of focus that you can barely distinguish components.
