Happy April Fools Day, everyone! Have some electronics humor:
- Sample microcontrollers with care; you don’t want to be taking unnecessary RISCs.
- The commercials at the beginning of the hobbyist versions of Eagle CAD are value ads.
- Try not to twist your ankle and fall on a Cortex, it could cost you an ARM and a leg.
- Shorting adjacent pins on your QFP is a bridge over troubled solder.
- How to be a Microchip fanboy: “PICs or it didn’t happen”.
- Government firmware backdoors: the other kind of SPI bus.
- ‘The Little Engine that Could’ probably had a CAN bus in it.
- Mouser: the best place to find CAT cable.
- Regular contributors to Hackaday’s project site are io-penners.
- What happens inside coilguns is anybody’s Gauss.
- I shared a clock between devices but it gave me a syncing feeling.
- Knowledge and experience: the difference between Debian Linux and Plebian Linux.
- No digital resume is complete without OpenCV.
- George R.R. Martin burned his debugging tool; it was a song of ICE and fire.
- Cubesat hard drives should use SATA-lite communications.

- Q: What do you call photovoltaics at night?
A: Sleeper cells.
- Tossing a heat-treated capacitor is one way to throw a tempered tant’lum.
- Electro-lite™ – the capacitor dielectric with fewer calories
- Applying external stimulus to a control system where ζ = 1: damped if you do, damped if you don’t.
- If your component tubes or reels won’t sit still, it’s because you’re using anti-static packaging.
- Q: What is the leading cause of divorce on printed circuit boards?
A: De-coupling capacitors.
- Q: What do pernicious toddlers and logic level enforcers have in common?
A: They’re both pullup resistors.
- What you call incomplete electrical circuits is an open question.
- Q: Why can’t QFNs solve murder mysteries?
A: They don’t have any leads.
