Bench Talk for Design Engineers | The Official Blog of Mouser Electronics


Michael Parks, P.E. is the co-founder of Green Shoe Garage, a custom electronics design studio and embedded security research firm located in Western Maryland. He produces the Gears of Resistance Podcast to help raise public awareness of technical and scientific matters. Michael is also a licensed Professional Engineer in the state of Maryland and holds a Master’s degree in systems engineering from Johns Hopkins University.


Mouser’s STEAMy Summer: Part 1 of 3 Mike Parks
This STEAM-inspired three-article series will explore the available resources to assist you and your kids on a maker’s adventure and walk you through an embedded electronics project. We will cover the design, build, and code for the project as well as discuss how the data from the project can be useful to develop analytical and critical thinking skills.

Digital Twinning and the Future of Transportation Safety Mike Parks
The tragedy that befell Southwest Flight 1380 in April 2018 is thankfully a rare event in modern air travel. Digital twining is a promising new technological concept that could soon help the transportation industry hone safety measures.

Making Mathematical Sense of PID Controllers Mike Parks
PID controllers are a popular method for including a feedback as a mechanism to help efficiently control industrial processes. Short for “proportional, integrative, derivative,” PID controllers keep the output of a system constant based on user provided setpoint. Tuning the PID controller parameters, though, requires a bit of math to maximize efficiency and minimize adjustments and corrections based on feedback.

Shaping Smarter Cities: Farming 2.0: Arduino Helps Farms Go Vertical Mike Parks
Vertical Farming is poised to bring agriculture to urban centers, but it needs automation and intelligence to succeed.

Westworld: Where Technology and Ethics Collide Mike Parks
Can we understand the implications of what we build?

Design Patterns: An Intuitive Approach to Circuit Analysis Mike Parks
Circuit design incorporates elements that are often repeated across many different circuits. Learning these patterns can enrich your own designs and inform how you see others schematics.

Mind Your R’s and C’s: A Look at Different Types of Resistors and Capacitors Mike Parks
There's a lot more to resistors and capacitors than just a symbol on a circuit. Learn about the various construction and performance characteristics of these overlooked parts to find which is right for your design.

Cybersecurity and the Internet of Industrial Things Mike Parks
The Internet was not built with security in mind. It was built predominantly by researchers looking to pass around scientific data. The assumption was that only good players would ever have access to the systems that eventually gave rise to the Internet we all know today. We have made significant progress with security in the decades since the Internet first became accessible to the public, but the cat and mouse game between the good guys and bad guys continues.

Desktop Factories: A ‘Moving’ Look at 3D Printing Mike Parks
There is no other product that singularly captures the essence of the maker movement more than the 3D printer. It is difficult to describe the feeling you get when you use a 3D printer for the first time. It truly is a euphoric rush once you realize you have the ability to take a mere concept in your mind’s eye and bring it to a tangible reality. There are many technologies driving the plethora of additive manufacturing products available today including stereolithography, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and the most universally recognized Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) method.

Rise of the “Maker Pro”: Selling Your First 100 Products Mike Parks
Never before in the history of invention has it been so easy to turn an idea into a reality. The Maker Movement has proven that there are still plenty of great products to be built and companies to grow. Many folks who are not classically trained in any technical field are becoming empowered to design, build, and create in ways that until recently were just simply not possible.
