Revealing the Ideas behind Circuits

Electronic circuitry is more art than science. Inventing novel electronic circuits is a result of human fantasy, imagination and enthusiasm.

Revealing the Ideas behind Circuits

We treat electronic circuitry not only as a science, but also as an art. Inventing novel electronic circuits is a result of human fantasy, imagination and enthusiasm.

Practical Electronics

Fortunately, abstract electronic circuits are based on clear and simple ideas, which we may derive from our human routine. In order to really understand how circuits operate, we have first to reveal the basic ideas on which they are grounded..."

This book is part of a series on Electric Circuits:

Practical Electronics

The aim of this book is to teach you simple analogue and digital electronics at a practical level. For the in-depth theory of electronics, please read the Electronics Textbook. By the end of this book, you should be able to combine circuit elements to create more complex circuits, and have an understanding of how it works.

The Schematic Symbol Reference, How To Solder and Desolder helped many electronic beginners in building their Projects. This was a valuable resource in those days even though it appears common today. The internet was used to genuinely share useful learning and ideas.

DMM or Digital Multi Meter

A nice DMM is the first thing you should own. Have one for High Voltage and High Energy and another for Workbench Testing.

DMM or Digital Multi Meter

Better to use external attenuators and shunts when high energy is involved. Make yourself and your instruments last for some time. Safety is first. Footwear and Gloves can help.

Digital Multi Meter - New Year Resolutions
  1. I will not drop the DMM from a height of 4 feet.
  2. I will not Test Live Powered equipment in the Ohms Mode.
  3. I shall not Measure Mains Voltage in The Current Mode.
  4. I shall get it calibrated once a year or at least once a decade.
  5. I shall not use it in High Energy Measurements.
  6. I will try my best not to give it to my best friend.
  7. I can remember Red is Positive and Black is negative.
  8. I will wear shoes and stand on a block of wood while i test.
  9. I shall not operate the rotary range switch at high speeds.
  10. I shall replace the probes-cables-connectors on wear-tear.
  11. I shall not accidentally keep the hot-iron near the DMM or leads.
  12. I shall not keep DMM on tall table and pull it with the leads.
