Write Your Own AppNote

There is often more than one way of doing something. An AppNote can show multiple ways of achieving an objective. Even if one is not exactly what you want, it may trigger your thoughts to find the way you prefer. Hopefully, that will also trigger you to write an AppNote covering “your way”.


Yes, you can write an AppNote. Please do. You don’t have to be an expert writer as your words will be edited and formatted to the AppNote format. Please write using a Microsoft Word compatible program and include your photos in the text where they should go. Your AppNote can be as long or short as needed to cover the topic. Photos are important as they can sometimes explain things better than words.
