I loved electronics when I was young, and was lucky enough to have a Dick Smith Fun Way electronics kit. Sure, I had no idea what I was doing, but playing with all the little transistors and capacitors and what not, was cool…
Now I’m a little more grown up, I’ve come back to this passion… As an motorsport enthusiast and participant, I’ve found a number of automotive applications which could be improved upon or created, and so I have been researching little DIY electronics kits and what not.
A few months ago I purchased a JayCar (Silicon Chip) Air Fuel Ratio display, and put it together. It got me thinking, and after chatting with some mates who have also been playing around with PLC’s and other electronics, I decided to have a look at a piece of software called LabVIEW.
Admittedly, I haven’t gotten very far, but hopefully, I pick it up soon. I have some (what I think are) great ideas, so would love to work it all out.
With that, my usual self reference material follows!
