The Electrical Engineering Community (EEWeb.com) somehow found this website and requested to feature Motors Are Fun on its site! What an honor it is to be highlighted by such a successful and auspicious site as EEWeb.
The EEWeb site has several features that could become your stopping point on the way to engineering or science projects. The first page pretty much has all of the topic areas covered: Product news and highlights, the Electronics Forum, Articles and Projects, a section for Featured Engineer, Application Design notes, the Site of the Day, and if you’re interested, a section on Job Listings.
Based on your knowledge of components, the site is a great resource for analog design, RF design, power, connectors, digital integrated circuits (ICs), and more. Each section has design news, design articles, application notes, and questions by members. I enjoyed the Companies link where EEWeb has about 29 Who’s Who of major electronics manufacturers and distributors – this is a great resource to get parts for the motors shown on Motors Are Fun website.
One of the highlights about EEWeb is at the top of the page to the right in the topic called Toolbox. Here you will find Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Tools, Passive Tools, RF Tools, Calculators, and Math help for Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Derivatives, and Integrals. Once again, EEWeb has brought together important concepts all in one spot.
I’m grateful to Algen Dela Cruz, an electrical engineer at EEWeb, who contacted me and has been active in keeping the process going. This will be a site I’ll seek out when looking for ideas and components for future DC motors. And I recommend that you would consider doing the same.
