My team is being asked to find out why a circuit is failing for no obvious reason. The circuit has a piezo buzzer (CEP2242 from CUI, Inc). The buzzer is driven by a MCU driven FET that completes a circuit like this: high side power 3.3V -> buzzer -> FET -> ground (BSS123LT1 FET on the low side). Does anybody have any experience with the possibility of a piezo buzzer generating dama

What do people do here rather than pay $5k per year for the privilege of 'owning/renting' a VID/PID combination? I have come across MCS Electronics who sell PIDs for a withdrawn VID. -- Mike Perkins Video Solutions Ltd www.videosolutions....

I'm using a display board from Adafruit [1]. It was ok, until I knew the device will be used outdoor, under the sun. Of course, the visibility of that display outdoor isn't good at all. Any suggestions how to improve its visibility? Is there a *similar* display that is good outdoor? Here similar means I should make minor changes (hw and sw) to adapt the current design to the new displa...
