Description [Hide]

Getting Started in Electronics  was where I (Dave Hrynkiw) started learning about the wonderful world of soldering irons and robots. The hand-written diagrams and instructions are neat, clear, and concise, and made you think you were working from the personal notebook of somebody who had seen it all and done it all before. And that's pretty much true!

Forrest Mimms III has exposed  many, many people to electronics with this inexpensive and easy-to-read book.

If you can only choose one book to start working in electronics, make sure it's this book.

Now that our endorsement is overwith, here's the standard details regarding the book:

This is a complete electronics course in 128 pages ! This famous electronics inventor teaches you the basics, takes you on a tour of analog and digital components, explains how they work and shows how they are combined for various applications. Includes circuit assembly tips and 100 electronic circuits you can build and test.

Begin with the basics:
Learn about static electricity and how to make magnets and solenoids. Find out about direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC). Then learn about electrical circuits that use batteries and lamps.

Basic Electronic Components:
Switches, relays, meters, resistors, capacitors, transformers and more.

Integrated Circuits:
From dozens to many thousands of electronic components can be formed on tiny chips of silicon.

Digital Integrated Circuits:
Learn the basics about digital logic gates using switches and transformers.

Linear Integrated Circuits:
Linear circuits respond only to the presence or absence of voltage. Linear circuits respond to a wide range of voltages giving them many applications.

Circuit Assembly Tips:
Learn how to use electronic components to make temporary circuits and permanent circuits using wire and solder.

100 Electronic Circuits:
Now you're ready to build any or even all of the 100 tested and working circuits. The categories of circuits include basic, photonic, digital and linear.
