About Moser

Hello I’m Andrew Moser! I’m an Electrical Engineering graduate (Summa Cum Laude) from Northern Illinois University. I grew up in Peoria IL and continue to live there. I am always positive and my mind is always working on something! I made this site to be able to write about solutions to electrical engineering problems  either as a tutorial or as an exhibition for my projects.

Education: I originally majored in Computer Science and Digital Media Arts at Huntington University. After discovering that I can’t sit in front of a computer for the rest of my life, I left the CS/DMA major. I then transferred to Illinois Central College and finished two associates in “Engineering Science” and “Arts & Sciences.” After that I transferred and finished my Electrical Engineering bachelors at Northern Illinois University.

Need something made? I do custom pcb/circuit design for small companies. Feel free to contact me on this topic. One example is this wifi board which monitors a sensor and sends an alert based on the readings from the sensor. It runs off 3AA batteries for ~1.5 years. I did another revision based on a GFSK module which lasts ~4 years on the same battery.

Job: I’m part of the development team for Caterpillar’s autonomous trucks.

Social Networking sites: I do not use Facebook, Twitter, Myspace…etc. I must be crazy to not use any of these! In short: I don’t fully trust these companies, and I’m the type who often strays from the crowd. It’s not that I have anything to hide, but I prefer some privacy. Here are some good articles which influenced my decision. Six Reasons Why I’m Not On Facebook, Social Media Background Check

    Hey Moser, your work inspires me. You remind me of someone I used to live next door to. I think he LOVED my music very much, but I’m sure you would. Keep Up the good work!

    Mr. Moser, I have a simple question to ask, if you have the time to correspond for a short moment, I assume you have access to my email address?

    Hi Moser,

    I have an application that I’m extrapolating from the arduino high voltage article you have on here. Could I email you for a question about it?
    Thanks so much!

    Hi love your projects and would love to talk.
    I will look for an email.

    Hello Andrew,
    I came across your piece about using an Arduino Uno to measure the inductance in an inductor –by including it in a resonant LC circuit.
    My question concerns my need to find out how to “pre-tune”, i.e., pre-establish my extremely high Q LC tank’s resonant frequency so it can be used as the input frequency back to the tank when the system is powered up.
    Can a variation of your schematic be used to accomplish this?
    Also, once the proper frequency is found, can the same Arduino Uno then produce a proper output signal for the wiper of an 8pdip 10 k digital potentiometer that would control the input frequency clock rate — as is now accomplished using manual potentiometer control.

    This is a long term project that is one step — this step — away from a very successful completion.

    Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to send my way.

    I was looking at your nixie clock and I must say you did things the hard way. Your component count is insane and I’m curious why you did it this way. No way should you need half the components you have from what I can see on each tube.

    Hi Moser,
    Am interested in your Pager-Duino, would like to discuss network possibilities..

  14. Bill Gatliff says:

    Fellow embedded developer here, I live near Dunlap. I’d love to get a beer and talk shop sometime, and might even want you to do a little project or two for me from time to time. Please email at your convenience.

  15. qpalzminc says:

    Hi Andrew – any details on your pager-duino? Github? Selling parts? I found you looking at range testing projects.


  16. Tim Sauder says:

    Hi Andrew – do you work with Jason on the turkey system? I’d be interested to see your resume if you email it over.
