Teralab Electronics projects - Robert Hunt

This site is an attempt to document some of the physics experiments and science projects which I have conducted in my laboratory at home. These experiments include high vacuum, electron optics and electrostatics. There is also a virtual museum of scientific instruments, antique lamps and antique valves. See Tera-fying Experiments, Virtual Museum and X-Ray Gallery.

Teralab Electronics projects

"My father was interested in T.E.Lawrence and used to visit Pat and Joyce Knowles who looked after Lawrence's cottage. Because they lived way out in the country side, they were not connected to the electricity supply. Pat generated electricity to charge a small room full of accumulators using solar panels and windmills. Pat encouraged my scientific interest by giving me old electronic equipment to play with." - Robert Hunt

e-puck robot - Open bot for Education

The main goal of this project is to develop a miniature mobile robot for educational purposes at university level.

To help the creation of a community inside and outside EPFL, the project is based on an open hardware concept, where all documents are distributed and submitted to a license allowing everyone to use and develop for it.

This project has been started at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne as collaboration between the Autonomous Systems Lab, the Swarm-Intelligent Systems group and the Laboratory of Intelligent System.

Plan for Robot

"The robot should cover a large spectrum of educational activities and should therefore have a large potential in its sensors, processing power and extensions. Potential educational fields are, for instance, mobile robotics, real-time programming, embedded systems, signal processing, image or sound feature extraction, human-machine interaction or collective systems...

The Art of Electronics – Paul Horowitz Winfield Hill

The Art of Electronics covers the full range of subjects normally treated in electronics books, as well as a rich complement of important but neglected topics.

The Art of Electronics, by Paul Horowitz and Winfield Hill

The book covers many areas of circuit design, from basic DC voltage, current, and resistance, to active filters and oscillators, to digital electronics, including microprocessors and digital bus interfacing. It also includes discussions of such often-neglected areas as high-frequency, high-speed design techniques and low-power applications.

Learning the Art of Electronics - A Hands-On Lab Course

This introduction to circuit design is unusual in several respects. First, it offers not just explanations, but a full course. Each of the twenty-five sessions begins with a discussion of a particular sort of circuit followed by the chance to try it out and see how it actually behaves.

The book includes many example circuits. In addition to having examples of good circuits, it also has examples of bad ideas, with discussions of what makes the good designs good and the bad ones bad. It can be described as a cross between a textbook and reference manual, though without the chapter-end questions and exercises which are often found in textbooks.

Paul Horowitz is a Research Professor of Physics and of Electrical Engineering at Harvard University, where in 1974 he originated the Laboratory Electronics course from which emerged The Art of Electronics.

Winfield Hill is by inclination an electronics circuit-design guru. After dropping out of the Chemical Physics graduate program at Harvard University.
