An all-in-one resource on everything electronics-related For almost 30 years, this book has been a classic text for electronics enthusiasts. Now completely updated for today's technology, this latest version combines concepts, self-tests, and hands-on projects to offer you a completely repackaged and revised resource. This unique self-teaching guide features easy-to-understand explanations that are presented in a user-friendly format to help you learn the essentials you need to work with electronic circuits. All you need is a general understanding of electronics concepts such as Ohm's law and current flow, and an acquaintance with first-year algebra. The question-and-answer format, illustrative experiments, and self-tests at the end of each chapter make it easy for you to learn at your own speed. Boasts a companion website that includes more than twenty full-color, step-by-step projects Shares hands-on practice opportunities and conceptual background information to enhance your learning process Targets electronics enthusiasts who already have a basic knowledge of electronics but are interested in learning more about this fascinating topic on their own Features projects that work with the multimeter, breadboard, function generator, oscilloscope, bandpass filter, transistor amplifier, oscillator, rectifier, and more You're sure to get a charge out of the vast coverage included in Complete Electronics Self-Teaching Guide with Projects
From the Back Cover
Follow hands-on projects so you can work with electronic circuits Are you ready to keep up with the rapidly evolving world of electronic products? From smartphones and tablets to MP3 players and digital cameras, this resource will build your understanding of how the latest electronic circuits work. You'll dive into hands-on projects and walk through the calculations and concepts for key circuits to get you up to speed. As you progress through the chapters, you'll learn how to build the circuits, and then observe or measure how they work so you can apply the information on your own. Learn how to control the flow of electric current Design a transistor circuit, and compare the switching action of a JFET and a BJT Explore the use of resistors, capacitors, and inductors in bandpass and band-reject filters Use BJTs, JFETs, and operational amplifiers in amplifier circuits Find out how an oscillator works, and then design and build one Discover how a transformer converts AC voltage to a higher or lower voltage Calculate the values of components that produce a specified DC output voltage for a power supply circuit The book's website (www.buildinggadgets.com) provides project pages that include links to suppliers and are kept up to date with supplier part numbers for components you'll need.
