Electronics for Beginners: A Practical Introduction to Schematics, Circuits, and Microcontrollers

Jump start your journey with electronics! If you’ve thoughtabout getting into electronics, but don’t know where to start, thisbook gives you the information you need. Starting with the basicsof electricity and circuits, you'll be introduced to digitalelectronics and microcontrollers, capacitors and inductors, andamplification circuits – all while gaining the basic tools andinformation you need to start working with low-powerelectronics.Electronics for Beginners walks the fine line of focusing onprojects-based learning, while still keeping electronics front andcenter. You'll learn the mathematics of circuits in anuncomplicated fashion and see how schematics map on to actualbreadboards. Written for the absolute beginner, this book steersclear of being too math heavy, giving readers the key informationthey need to get started on their electronics journey.What You’ll LearnReview the basic “patterns” of resistor usage―pull up, pull down,voltage divider, and current limiterUnderstand the requirements for circuits and how they are puttogetherRead and differentiate what various parts of the schematics doDecide what considerations to take when choosing componentsUse all battery-powered circuits, so projects are safeWho This Book Is ForMakers, students, and beginners of any age interested in gettingstarted with electronics.
