Personal Projects Advent Calendar 2018

Markus | Thursday, December 27th 2018, 00:00

-- 27 Days of Projects

Figure 1. Thank you for 2018!
2018 is coming to an end, and so it's time to tend to things that didn't get done over the year. For me, I've been wanting to talk about many of my old projects for quite a while now, but never got around to it.

So this December (or tbh, many were shot during November), I pulled together and made videos for 25 of my projects. They date from very recent (November 2018) back to my school days (2007), so there's quite some variation to the style and type of project. I hope that you will enjoy (at least some of) them.

USB VFD (HCS-12SS59T)

Markus | Updated Saturday, March 24th 2018, 18:05

-- A basic general purpose USB enabled display

Figure 1. The USB VFD board

When ordering at Pollin Electronic, there is this unwritten rule of at least throwing in one probably useless item, one that you might never even get to work (or that is broken in the first place). In my last order, this was a Samsung HCS-12SS59T vacuum fluorescent display[1]. I absolutely love this kind of display and they were cheap at only EUR 1.75 a piece. So why not?

In this post, I will showcase the project that this display became.

In this video I will show you one of the recent upgrades to my file server I have at home.

It had a cheap power supply and the original fans in there and I finally decided to invest the money and change them in the hope of better temperatures and longer lifespan for the entire system.

Specs of the current hardware:

  • Mainboard: AsrockRack C2550D4I Mainboard
  • CPU: Intel Atom C2550 Quad-Core
  • RAM: 16 GB DDR3 ECC RAM
  • HDD: 4x 4TB HDD in Freenas' RAIDZ2
  • Case: Silverstone DS380 Case
  • PSU: Silverstone SFX 300W power supply
  • Fans: BeQuiet Pure Wings 2 (PWM)
