Wire Wrap Wire?
I use #26 OK Industries in 100' spools,  Klein D257-4C to strip and cut. Strip is done by pinching insulation in V of cutters, pulling away. It can be done without...

High Pass DSP?
Jim, Sorry for long delay. Hint I gave for multiple samples, and it works for bipolar data aquired unipolarly. It was was for 3phase voltage and power measurements, 25 years ago...

High Pass DSP?
In post #3 you are close. Use variance, sum of squares minus square of sums. That is a trick for RMS on the fly, without individual x-xbar, on ac coupled system. Subtracks dc...

Pulse count from engine pickup coil
A pickup coil sensor might be variable reluctance. The coil is biased with a magnet, the moving target is metal, the target changes magnetic flux to generate voltage. The voltage...

Behold . . . new dip adapters are born...
For the AVR adapters, do you place bypass caps close under chip, and pads for crystal and load caps? Oops, I read mention of not. On some generic adapters, I have installed 0304...

Atmega328 hang/freeze , very noise!
Ground planes that extend beyond circuit, and have sharp corners are good for radiation of signals. That is why route of grounds is good.

The typical ignition IGBT has integrated protections, and clamp. Been using them for years without issues. Trying to use diode will likely suppress ignition energy to plug.

Atmega328 hang/freeze , very noise!
Have you studied data sheets on ignition IGBT parts, and related application notes?

Atmega328 hang/freeze , very noise!
I hope you wear safety glasses. The 1N914 might explode. If you understand what you are doing, the diode is a disadvantage. I am not good help on your layout. For what you are...

The same plane for the ground could be a problem. Route of grounds, gives flexibility for control of curent paths.

Both Kartman and Brian are on target. Fairchild Semi makes logic level IGBT coil drivers. I have used those with success. I also use 1k chip inductor to feed gate, but no snubber...

Learning more useful knowledge about electronics
The way I learned more tha 5 decades ago was reading catalogs, data sheets, applications notes, and building projects. After all that, earned a bsee degree. Varied work...
