Crackers are a good way to keep the lights on, especially if you’re in a hurry.
But there’s no such thing as a bad cracker, so let’s get the hell out of there and get cracking.
We’re going to be using crickets to show you how to make a simple electronic signature for lithium-iodide batteries.
And yes, it’s really easy.
What we’re going do here is create a simple circuit using a digital signal and a crickets, but the crickets are just an extra step in the process.
Just like you would do with a resistor and a potentiometer, you simply connect the cricket signal to a digital input and use it to make the electrical signature.
And, of course, if you like, you can even create your own signature by adding a bit of electrical noise, a voltage divider, or just some other simple circuit element.
A simple, cheap electronic signature is perfect for powering an electronic gadget like a camera, or even your own phone.
Crickets are simple to make, inexpensive, and easy to control, so we’ll be showing you how you can use them in this tutorial.
First, we’ll make a crummy circuit using resistors and a transistor.
