I took some time to cleanup my bench this weekend and figured it would be a good time to take a picture and submit it to the WOTW cause. Workbench of the Week is a feature of the Amp hour podcast that I have enjoyed quite a bit. My setup isn’t anything terribly fancy. It’s what I use to build BLDC Controllers, Batteries, Protection Electronics, Digital Projects and a little Ham Radio tinkering. Here is a laundry list of equipment:

  • Old School HP140T spectrum analyzer, works great
  • Transistor Devices electronic load , 100v ~500W
  • 13.8V linear power supply, 400w
  • ~28V switching PS ~1500W
  • Phillips 25mhz analog scope  (cheap hamfest find, need to pickup a Rigol soon…)
  • Several Cheapie DMMs – Does the trick
  • HP6034 power supply 300w (project)
  • Hakko Soldering Station
  • One-Hung-Lo soldering station….
  • Self-Contained Cell Tab Welder
  • Bunch of MSP430 prototyping toys tools sitting on the venerable CRT (12 yrs old :D)
