Rants: Lab Update #2

I never thought I will post another lab update so quickly.  Not only did I reorganized my lab, but I recently got a plethora of new parts and one new test equipment that I would like to talk about today.

Some new goodies thanks to my co-worker

So first, I would like to talk about some more discrete parts I obtained from one of my co-workers. Of course I got a bag filled with resistors, npn transistors, and pnp transistors, but I never expected to get two bags of 10uF wet-tantulum through-hole capacitors. Keep in mind, through hole wet-tantalum capacitors are bloody expensive, and I got them for free! I also received two 3M connectors, which are ideal for debugging through-hole ics without breaking a connection to do so.

My new Tektronix oscilloscope! A little old, but still, a Tektronix oscilloscope!
