    Unlike TI FilterPro, this site doesn't crash:
    http://sim.okawa-denshi.jp/en/

    Good for working out values for multiple feedback filters amongst a whole lot of general filter circuit things.

    interesting websites

    Here is an interesting site for real-world Arduino applications:
    http://www.practicalarduino.com/projects

    Although biased towards their own products, many companies offer up circuits and concepts that are explained very well. Such as
    Analog Devices
    http://www.analog.com/en/circuits-from-the-lab/index.html
    Linear Technology
    http://www.linear.com/lt_magazines.jsp [if you sample from Linear, get a larger mailbox, as they post out all sorts of things]
    NXP
    http://www.nxp.com/#/page/content=[f=/dynamic/literature/latest/data.xml]
    Some companies have literally books you can download, such as:
    "Op Amps for Everyone" from TI
    http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/litabsmultiplefilelist.tsp?literatureNumber=slod006b

    The more you search, the more you find!

    Useful blogs

    Oh crikey, absolutely. I can't believe I forgot about it. Dave is a champion, you can learn so much from his vlogs and rants. Plus his new podcast show with Chris Gammell at www.theamphour.com.

    Hi guys, just found this PDF from Ramsey Electronics. It is an instruction manual for one of their kits (the PG-13 plasma generator kit) but contains five pages of safety and cautionary recommendations for working on high-voltage equipment, procedures and thresholds for leakage current testing, plus tons of info on generating plasma from neon and other gases, and of course background and assembly instructions for the kit itself.

    While it is obviously intended to be most relevant for this specific kit, there is heaps of useful background info on high-voltage circuits here, along with the precautions to take when working with them.

    DISCLAIMER: Simply reading this document does not instantly provide one with the appropriate level of knowledge, skill and commonsense required to work on mains-powered or other high voltage equipment. Such projects should only be attempted by suitably qualified and/or competent people.

    Someone linked this thread in an automotive thread and I keep having to search for it, so I'll dump it here.

    Different splicing techniques for joining two or more wires together.
    No more "twist and duck tape [sic] and she'll be right"...

    The news letters on this side are are good source of information about antennas
    Just ignore the program the pictures and details are useful they go on to give dimensions in some of the news letters.

    Be careful with that one, I hear the author of that thread is a bit of a n00b. :D

    Scepticism is a wise attitude on the net, but in this case, it's unnecessary.
    Elector is one of the best electronic (hobbiest) magazines left. They publish UK, EU and US editions.
    The UK edition is imported into Aus, but only the larger newsagents stock it.

    As for Electro24, welcome to OCAU.
