Analog electronics is the simplest way to start a fun, informative, learning program. Beginning Analog Electronics Through Projects, Second Edition was written with the needs of beginning hobbyists and students in mind. This revision of Andrew Singmin's popular Beginning Electronics Through Projects provides practical exercises, building techniques, and ideas for useful electronics projects. Additionally, it features new material on analog and digital electronics, and new projects for troubleshooting test equipment. Published in the tradition of Beginning Electronics Through Projects and Beginning Digital Electronics Through Projects, this book limits theory to "need-to-know" information tha...
This follow-up to "Beginning Analog Electronics Through Projects" offers readers more practical electronics circuit theory and building techniques with over a dozen useful digital experiments. Step-by-step instructions help readers learn techniques for component identification, soldering, troubleshooting, and more.
Practical Audio Amplifier Circuit Projects builds on the introduction to electronic circuits provided in Singmin's innovative and successful first book, Beginning Electronics Through Projects. Both books draw on the author's many years of experience as electronics professional and as hobbyist. As a result, his project descriptions are lively, practical, and very clear. With this new volume, the reader can build relatively simple systems and achieve useable results quickly. The projects included here allow a hobbyist to build amplifier circuits, test them, and then put them into a system. Progress through a graduated series of learning activities culminates in unique devices that are nevertheless easy to build. Learn the basic building blocks of audio amplifier circuit design and then apply your knowledge to your own audio inventions. Targets the intermediate to advanced reader with challenging projects that teach important circuit theories and principles Provides a ready source of audio circuits to professional audio engineers Includes an electric guitar pacer project that lets you "jam" with your favorite band!
New technology overpowers the old every day. One minute you're working with the quickest and most sophisticated electronic equipment, and the next you're working with a museum piece. This dictionary thoroughly defines the ever-changing and advancing world of electronics terminology.
This book covers anything and everything needed to learn the art of electronics soldering. The traditional notion of soldering no longer applies in the quickly changing world of technology. This book will help you acquire the skills needed to solder wires and components, troubleshoot, utilize simple test meters and more. A great tool for the beginner or someone wanting to advance his or her career.

Accessible to all readers, including students of secondary school and amateur technology enthusiasts, Robotics, Mechatronics, and Artificial Intelligence simplifies the process of finding basic circuits to perform simple tasks, such as how to control a DC or step motor, and provides instruction on creating moving robotic parts, such as an "eye" or an "ear." Though many companies offer kits for project construction, most experimenters want to design and build their own robots and other creatures specific to their needs and goals. With this new book by Newton Braga, hobbyists and experimenters around the world will be able to decide what skills they want to feature in a project and then choose...
Now that the FCC has changed the laws governing pirate radio and video stations, more and more people across the country are starting broadcasts from their homes. Of course transmitting equipment is very expensive, but now you can build your own transmitters for a fraction of the cost of purchasing. By reading about and building the over thirty projects in Pirate Radio and Video, you can construct your own station with a minimum investment for maximum learning. With projects for UHF, VHF, AM and FM transmitters, this book covers the gamut of popular bands and outputs. Not only will you learn how to build your own transmitters, but also how to troubleshoot problems, test outcomes and even syn...
Full of projects based on the 4093 CMOS IC, CMOS Projects and Experiments will be of great interest to hobbyists and students. Readers will have the opportunity to learn how to apply CMOS ICs in their six primary uses while building these well-documented projects.CMOS Projects and Experiments includes instructions to build over 100 unusual and useful projects. They include audio and RF devices, lamps, LEDs, timers, alarms, inverters and much more. This book offers hobbyists and students a satisfying, practical way of learning about a hot topic in electronics today.Among the devices you can build using this book are a touch-controlled oscillator, a light-controlled oscillator, insect repellent, a metronome, a Morse code tone generator, a CW transmitter, a two-tone siren, a neon-lamp flasher, an auto turn-off relay, a turn-off timer, a touch-controlled motor, a bistable sonic relay, a coin tosser, a freezer alarm, an ultraviolet lamp, a simple fluorescent lamp inverter, a nerve stimulator, and an experimental high-voltage generator.
For years paranormal scientists have explored the detection and documentation of spirits, auras, ESP, hypnosis, and many more phenomena through electronics. Electronic Projects from the Next Dimension provides useful information on building practical circuits and projects, and applying the knowledge to unique experiments in the paranormal field. The author writes about dozens of inexpensive projects to help electronics hobbyists search for and document their own answers about instrumental transcommunication (ITC), the electronic voice phenomenon (EVP), and paranormal experiments involving ESP, auras, and Kirlian photography. Although paranormal studies are considered esoteric, Electronic Projects from the Next Dimension teaches the technical skills needed to make devices that can be used in many different kinds of experiments. Each section indicates how the circuit can be used in paranormal experiments with suggestions about procedures and how to analyze the results. Provides unique projects for believers and skeptics Perfect for any level of electronics experience Learn from these basics projects and design your own applications
