With Make: Electronics, you'll learn all of the basic components and important principles through a series of "learn by discovery" experiments.


Description [Hide]

Make publications does it again with a killer beginner projects book. It has excellent, full-colour illustrations, clever experiments, and pretty much covers what happens when you finish building the project.

Get step-by-step instructions on building working devices that demonstrate fundamentals such as voltage, amperage, resistance, inductance, and capacitance. Then tackle more complex electronics concepts, including analog/digital conversion, logic gates, and integrated circuits. Along the way, you'll learn valuable tips and techniques, always with clear explanations of what you're doing and why.

  • Start out by breaking things -- experiment with components and learn why you experience failure. We're big fans of this approach. You learn more out of breaking things than using them properly (well, most of the time).
  • Set up a tricked-out project space -- your own at-home work area, equipped with all of the tools and parts you'll need for the experiments in this book
  • Learn about all of the key electronic components and their functions within a circuit through a series of clearly presented, well-illustrated experiments
  • Create a car alarm, holiday lights, wearable electronic jewelry, audio generators, a crystal radio, and a touch-sensitive lamp
  • Work with brushed DC and stepper motors to understand their principles and applications
  • Learn about programmable microcontrollers by building an autonomous robot cart that can sense its environment and avoid obstacles

If you've always wanted to learn electronics, but were intimidated by other books and overly-technical websites, this book is for you! It's an excellent companion to the Forrest Mimms series of beginner publications (which take a more homey, notebook-like approach)
