"This is teaching at its best!"--Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit), and author of Much Ado About Almost Nothing: Man's Encounter with the Electron (Booklocker.com)"A fabulous book: well written, well paced, fun, and informative. I also love the sense of humor. It's very good at disarming the fear. And it's gorgeous. I'll be recommending this book highly."--Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things TalkA "magnificent and rewarding book. ... Every step of this structured instruction is expertly illustrated with photos and crisp diagrams. . . . This really is the best way to learn."--Kevin Kelly, in Cool ToolsThe first edition of Make: Electronics established a new benchmark for introductory texts. This second edition enhances that learning experience.Here you will find unique, photographically precise diagrams of breadboarded components, to help you build circuits with speed and precision. A new shopping guide and a simplified range of components, will minimize your investment in parts for the projects. A completely new section on the Arduino shows you how to write properly structured programs instead of just downloading other people's code. Projects have been reworked to provide additional features, and the bo...

Easy Electronics (Make: Handbook)
Easy Electronics (Make:
This is the simplest, quickest, least technical, most affordable introduction to basic electronics. No tools are necessary--not even a screwdriver. Easy Electronics should satisfy anyone who has felt frustrated by entry-level books that are not as clear and simple as they are supposed to be.Brilliantly clear graphics will take you step by step through 12 basic projects, none of which should take more than half an hour. Using alligator clips to connect components, you see and hear immediateresults. The hands-on approach is fun and intriguing, especially for family members exploring the projects together.The 12 experiments will introduce you to switches, resistors, capacitors, transistors, phototransistors, LEDs, audio transducers, and a silicon chip. You'll even learn how to read schematics by comparing them with the circuits that you build.No prior knowledge is required, and no math is involved. You learn by seeing, hearing, and touching. By the end of Experiment 12, you may be eager to move on to a more detailed book. Easy Electronics will function perfectly as a prequel to the same author's bestseller, Make: Electronics.All the components listed in the book are inexpensive and readily available from online sellers. A very affordable kit has been developed in conjunction with th...

Make: Design Your Own Circuits: 17 Exciting Design Ideas for New Electronics Projects
Make: Design Your Own Circuits: 17 Exciting Design
While basic circuits may be easy to understand, creating a circuit requires a different way of thinking. The purpose of this book is to show how it's done. Being creative, instead of just following instructions, is part of the Maker ethic. This should include designing circuits to do what you want. The hands-on projects in this book progress from simple to complex, breaking circuits into modules to make them easier to understand. It is suitable for adult learners, as well as for teens ages 12 and up. (Younger readers can work through it with adult assistance.) Unique pictorial diagrams included in the book show circuits as they actually appear on a breadboard (not just schematics). Teaches the fundamentals of electronic circuitsStarts with basics and builds to more sophisticated designsExplains how to read and draw circuit diagramsEncourages experimentation and hands-on buildingIncludes cartoons and full-color photographs and line drawingsOne of the relatively few entry-level books on circuit designShifts the focus away from explaining components and onto showing how to link them togetherMake: Design Your Own Circuits is a standalone book that doesn't require familiarity with Charles Platt's other popular Make: Electronics books.

How to Use a Breadboard! (Make: Handbook)
How to Use a Breadboard! (Make:
This full-color, illustrated handbook uses comic book-style panels to explain the basics of using a breadboard; then it walks you through ten fun and educational projects. You'll learn-by-doing as you study the circuit diagrams and colorful drawings, working your way through each project. Bonus features include an "X-Ray" drawing of the inside of the breadboard and a guide to understanding resistor color codes. A solderless breadboard is the perfect platform for learning electronics, whether at home or in the classroom, because it can be used over and over again for different circuits. With the projects in this handbook, you will learn how to use a light sensor, a potentiometer, a diode, a 555 timer, capacitors, transistors, and more! You'll also be challenged to actively figure out what else you can do with the circuits you have built.Learn how to build the following circuits:Dark DetectorLED FlasherElectric CricketBreathing LEDBanshee SirenLight TheraminBlues OrganBike Signal LightTouch SwitchLed Color OrganAs you gain experience building the circuits, you'll also learn how to read schematics - the shorthand language of electronics. The glossary provides definitions and illustrations for terms that may be unfamiliar.There's no better way to learn than by making things yourself....
