Notes

A fine specimen of Coccinellidae Boldportus, a new type of ladybird discovered in Bermondsey, London.

“The Lady” is Project #4 from The Boldport Club. It is a really simple circuit, and functionally nothing ground-breaking .. but that really isn’t the point. It is just a stunning bit of PCB design. Yes, this is more art than electronics!

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LEAP GitHub repository.

LEAP is my personal collection of electronics projects, usually involving an Arduino or other microprocessor in one way or another. Some are full-blown projects, while many are trivial breadboard experiments, intended to learn and explore something interesting (IMHO!).

The projects are usually inspired by things found wild on the net, or ideas from the sources such as:

Feel free to borrow liberally, and if you spot any issues do let me know. See the individual projects for credits where due. There are even now a few projects contributed by others - send your own over in a pull request if you would also like to add to this collection.
