      Getting Started in Electronics

    Begin With the Basics - Learn about static electricity and how to make magnets and solenoids. Find out about direct current and alternating current. Then learn about electrical circuits that use batteries and lamps.
  • Basic Electronic Components - Find out how switches, relays, meters, resistor, capacitors, transformers are used.
  • Diodes and Transistors - These components are they key ingredients to modern electronic circuits. Find out what they do and how they work.
  • 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 to only the presence or absences 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 included in the book. The categories of circuits include basic, photonic, digital, and linear.
