Re: Netgear N900 price fixing

I agree with you, just tired of this price fixing game corporations pull off.. they get away with it knowing full well its illegal .. Having once worked in retailing, i can say in most case it doesn't quite work like that it is more subtle - this is a generla comment not specific to the Netgear rou...

I use Virtual box for software testing - works fine on W7 64bit for me.

What exact problem is your friend having?

Re: BoostC

If you really want to stick with Basic, look at the one provided by [url=http:\\www.mikroe.com]Mikroelectronika[/url], the unpaid for version has a 6K code limit (I think), once paid for code size is unlimited.

Re: Old Norton...

In addition to Setec's link to Acronis (I have to declare that I'm very active on the Acronis forum as an MVP -so I may be biased) there is also Disk Director that can edit disks (though I do prefer the old Norton's), however the current version won't work or install on Windows 7 and the Linux versi...

Re: What Microcontroller Language do you prefer?

I tend to write all my programs in either C or structured Basic (Basic that looks and behaves like C), however in my opinion you still need to learn the assembler for your microcontroller for the following reasons. 1. It makes it easier to debug your code when your program doesn't do what you though...

Re: MicroChip PIC16F873 question

I've now had a chance to look at the data sheet for the 883.

If you're code doesn't use any of the peripheral devices or timers then you might be lucky. However, I would strongly urge making the required alterations in the C code - for the 1 bit port E and recompiling.

Re: MicroChip PIC16F873 question

I'll have to check out the 883 specs before answering your question fully. If the 883 has the same registers and they are in the same position, then it would work - code for a 16F872,3,6,7 so long as the code would physically fit then the code would work. However the 883 may have some advancements. ...

You could also be more standard by using - the normal 1/(2pi * F * Z) Double checking: Z = 1/(2pi *F * C) = 1/(6.28 * 100Hz * 26.5uF) = 60.1 ohms C=5/(pi*F*Z) where C is the capacitance in Farads F is the frequency in Hertz Z is the existing impedance in ohms pi is the constant 3.14159...

Re: line level signal?

Ah just realised I misread your question. A blocking capacitor would stop the dc power voltage reaching the other side.

Re: line level signal?

If you require a parasitic power supply, you need to feed your 3v8 to the top end of a d.c choke. The other end of the choke goes to the microphone power connection and you'll need a capacitor in series to prevent the d.c getting into the line in circuitry. so +3v8 | L | |......C.................
