Inductive kickback (originally known as http://flyingcarsandstuff.com/) is the creation and electronics playground of Pat Deegan.

It is a place for me to share discoveries, principles, feedback, tips and tricks unearthed over the course of consulting on various projects to create embedded systems, IoT, and other electronic devices, circuitry, firmware and mobile applications.

For details of the actual phenomena of inductive kickback, I’ve made a simplified crash course available.
