Mosfet gate drive - running at about 12.5 KHZ. It only takes that narrow on time to make 900V with the 10 MEG load of the Fluke! The frequency is set a bit low so it hits cycle current limit at about 1000V. Don't want to break any capacitors if something goes wrong. At 20KHZ you could get well over 1200V but I am using .1uf at 1000V as a filter on the other board. So I want 950 or so maximum.

And now - my Netburner MOD5270 carrier board and a Time of Flight chip!

This uses the VL6180X Time of Flight Sensor to measure distance to mm resolution. In the above video the Dodge wiper motor servo follows the motion of my hand. People think it is magic!

Extend the reach of your MOD5270 or similar with Bluetooth control of 4 relays, get data from one analog input channel, and have a few GPIO using the Texas Instruments MSP430G2553IN20. The master bluetooth will connect to a netburner and transmit to this unit to allow control of stuff in another room. Relay modules are about $5 on Ebay and the Bluetooth modules are about $2. Great range - connects up anywhere in the house.

Hi...thanks for sharing such a helpful project here. I really liked your content and work. In my case the scope picture shows a Cesium 137 662KEV Gamma pulse. It measures about 1.2V, the gain is 2, the sensitivity of the detector is 1V per MEV, and so that is about right.
