We recently added some “Merry Christmas” images, including some in the style of neon signs.
Sometimes it’s hard to come up with something different.
But if you’ve been in electronics for many years, you’ll have used classic chips such as the 741 op-amp and the 555 timer. That’s where we got the idea of creating images for use on mugs and T-shirts.
There are some vector images (line drawings) that mean you can choose any colour at spreadshirt.
And there are rendered images created using Blender, that look more realistic – the choice is yours.
Take a look at the designs on our Electronic Components page.
OK, so it’s a bit late in the year to talk about it now, but earlier this year, the Commodore 64 turned 30. That news brought back some memories, such as:
- Writing 6510 (6502) assembly language
- Reading the “Commodore 64 Programmer’s Reference Guide” (have you still got yours?)
- Programming the 6581 MOS Technology SID chip, responsible for generating the sound in the C64
- Programming sprite graphics
- And of course playing games…
Recently, I came across some spare chips in a component cabinet! So I took some measurements (it’s nicer than just downloading a datasheet), created some models in Blender, rendered some images, and made them available for use on mugs, T-shirts etc. You can see them on our vintage / retro computing page.
