Power Cycling Electronics? I know it fixes most problem I have with electronics but why does it work?
Thanks for your help
The electronic components have many circuits inside, and when one or more change voltage levels when they aren’t supposed to, then it doesn’t work properly and you get “hung up”.
When you turn off the power, all of the electricity in the circuits bleeds away to zero, so that when you turn it on again, all the circuits are starting off fresh.
You should wait a few seconds between turning your electronics off and turning them back on to allow the voltages to bleed off completely.
The main reasons why power cycling is done is to have an electronic device reinitialize its configuration or recover from an unresponsive state, such as “Crash” or “Hanging”.
Most modern electronic devices have a program ROM chip or BIOS, with their proprietary programming. Over the course of normal operation, certain unforeseen events such as power surge and electrical noise can cause electronic devices to malfunction, and the simplest way to reinitialize the program is to cycle the device’s power.
I hope my answer explains your question.
This forum is about bicycles and riding them: cycling get it?
Electronics – Computers? A memory chip is labeled as 2114-20. What does the 20 indicate?
TRC read cycle time is 200 clock cycles minimum
max access time = 200 nSec
if you notice the other chips 2114-3 are tRC 300 and max access time of 300=nSec
So I am going to say that the 20 designates the access time of the memory chip.
Cycling A 76L Tank? According to some conversion website, 76.2 Litres is 20.13 US Gallons or 16.76 UK Gallons. (Why do you have different Gallons, omg you imperial measurement system people are crazy :P).
Anyway, I’m planning to cycle the tank for about 4 weeks then add fish slowly at about 2 fish/week until it’s stocked. I’ve currently got the cover open – is this necessary? I heard it helps in the evaporation of chlorine from the water, although I have already treated the water with a de chlorinating chemical. Also, do you need a surge protector for aquarium electronics, or will a normal power board suffice?
Yeah your cycling procedure sounds perfect ?
If you’ve already added dechlorinator to the water, leaving the cover off isn’t necessary, but if it’s more convienient for you for some reason it won’t hurt.
And with the surge protector – if have one lying around or want to invest in one it certainly won’t hurt – it’ll prevent any damage. Saying that, where I live I have surge protected all my electronics and in 18 years nothing has happened. It can’t hurt, so I’d go for it ?
What Is Meant By Green Electronics?
Computers and other office electronics play a big role in our lives, helping us perform tasks in an efficient manner. But electronic equipment is part of an increasing and complex waste stream that poses challenging environmental management problems for federal agencies because of the hazardous constituents in many of these products. Fortunately, many programs and resources can help you safely manage your unwanted electronic equipment in an environmentally sound manner.
Many of EPA’s regional offices are taking part in the reuse and recycling of “technotrash”--small electronic items and computer accessories such as diskettes, CDs/DVDs and their jewel cases, and video, audio, and computer tapes and their cases. Any items that can be reused should be placed in a centralized location easily accessed by all staff members. Those items that cannot be reused can be collected and shipped offsite for recycling. EPA offices interested in starting a technotrash reuse and recycling program should contact Gail Wray of EPA’s Sustainable Facilities Practices Branch for more information or explore the GreenDisk Web site.
EPA's Recycling Electronics and Asset Disposition (READ) Program provides all federal agencies with a tool to properly manage electronic inventories and unwanted equipment in an environmentally responsible manner.
EPA's Product Stewardship Web page describes how electronic products can be made more sustainable by making electronic equipment with fewer toxic constituents and designing equipment with upgradability, durability, and recyclability in mind.
EPA's Plug-in to E-Cycling is a program that aims to increase the number of electronic devices collected and recycled. It offers information about electronics recycling to the public, facilitates various partnerships to promote safe electronics recycling, and establishes pilot projects to test new approaches to electronics recycling.
Through the WasteWise Electronics Challenge, WasteWise partners pledge to reduce electronic waste by donating reusable equipment, buying remanufactured equipment, leasing electronics instead of buying, and recycling equipment that can no longer be used.
The Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC) is a voluntary partnership program that encourages facilities and organizations to purchase "green" electronics, reduce the impact of electronics when using them, and manage unusable electronics in an environmentally safe manner.
EPEAT is a procurement tool developed by the Green Electronics Council to help purchasers in the public and private sectors evaluate, compare, and select desktop computers, notebooks, and monitors based on their environmental attributes. EPEAT also provides performance criteria for the design of products, and provides a list of manufacturers and their efficient products.
What Could Be Our Thesis On Electronics? It should be an innovation but it’s difficult for us to think for an innovation.. Could someone suggests us for a possible one?
How about a quadnary computer? Binary gets to 256 in eight cycles, (eight bit), while quadnary gets to 65,536 in the same number of cycles, allowing a data density increase in just 8 cycles that is 256 times greater. Computing times would be decreased dramatically, or very simple and inexpensive processors could do the work of the full scale jobs now put in computers. The capacity of hard drives would increase dramatically as well.
To do this, each transistor or data point needs more than just yes/no, or on/off. Polarity would have to be introduced. That is, the current flow through the circuit would need to flip flop. Theoretically, if the current pulses through the circuit were interrupted at the same rate of the frequency, and a current of opposing polarity flowed backwards through the circuit during the interruption, the flows would interlace and the clock speed of the processor would be effectively doubled, thus allowing each on/off to have a value or four, rather than two.
Or, the voltage could be stepped, so that “ON” might have any number of values depending on voltage, so that each clock cycle through each transistor could have as many different values as could be discerned by the circuitry. Theoretically, each clock cycle could account for not just two values, yes/no or on/off, but potentially hundreds or even thousands of values. The processing power of a very simple circuit could thus be immense, and the processing power of the existing multimillion transistor chips could easily exceed a supercomputer.
Posit some means of accomplishing either goal, and you have a thesis.
Find the solution, and you will become a billionaire.
