Passive Ethernet Tap

A Ethernet tap allows you to monitor Ethernet communications going through the tap. The circuit uses no power and that is why its called passive. Can be made by cutting Ethernet cords and/or soldering or crimping. This method will make the maximum Ethernet speed 100Mbps, even if its a gigabit Ethernet. Also you could use […]

Sawtooth generator for TV oscilloscope

Here’s what I come up with for sawtooth signal for the scope. I took the ramp generator circuit from learningaboutelectronics.com It uses 3/4 Op Amps from the LM324 chip. I tested the circuit from learningaboutcelectronics.com and it works in multisim. S1 and R8 controls the frequency. R6 controls the amplitude of the sawtooth voltage. When […]
