"This is teaching at its best!"--Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit)."A fabulous book: well written, well paced, fun, and informative. I also love the sense of humor. It's very good at disarming the fear. And it's gorgeous. I'll be recommending this book highly."--Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things Talk.A "magnificent and rewarding book. ... Every step of this structured instruction is expertly illustrated with photos and crisp diagrams. . . . This really is the best way to learn."--Kevin Kelly, in Cool Tools.The first edition of Make: Electronics established a new benchmark for introductory texts. This second edition enhances that learning experience. Using full color on every page, hundreds of photographs and diagrams convey concepts with unmatched clarity.Platt uses a hands-on approach throughout. You learn by building your own simple circuits.You begin by blowing a fuse or burning out an LED to demonstrate voltage, amperage, and electrical resistance. As it says on the cover, "Burn things out, mess things up--that's how you learn!"The hands-on approach continues with basic switching circuits. You can cut open the sealed case of a relay to see exactly what goes on inside.Unique 3D diagrams illustrate ...

Basic Electronics (Dover Books on Engineering)
Basic Electronics (Dover Books on
Originally prepared for Naval training courses and so thoroughly revised in 1972 as to be an essentially new book, this introduction covers the important aspects of applied electronics and electronic communication. It requires no more advanced preparation than knowledge of the principles of applied electronics and elementary mathematics.Beginning with chapters on electronics equipment, testing devices, safety procedures, basic transistors and electron tubes, the text proceeds slowly and logically to the application of those principles in power supplies, amplifiers and the fundamentals of communication theory. Central to the book is the discussion of all phases of electronic communication with full coverage of amplitude modulated (AM), frequency modulated (FM), and continuous wave (CW) transmission and receiving. Final chapters take up troubleshooting, transmission lines and antennas.In every case terms are clearly defined and the discussion builds easily from elementary theory to the particular applications. Mathematical derivations and processes which are beyond those of high school algebra are provided. Important concepts, apparatus and techniques are clearly illustrated in hundreds of diagrams and drawings.An excellent text for self-study as well as the classroom, this course ...
