A lesson in design thinking, collaboration, and learning to admit when you are wrong... This week on the Workbench, George KJ6VU and Jeremy KF7IJZ are joined by Beric Dunn K6BEZ and Nick Garner N3WG to design an "idiot switch" - a micro controller device that can remove power from a soldering iron in case when the user leaves it turned on too long (Like Jeremy himself did with a Hakko FX-888). Join the gang in this episode to hear different approaches for solution design, implementation approach, and the ultimate consensus at the end.
