Electronics primers, course material and books
« on: January 02, 2011, 07:01:07 am »
Hi,

I'd like to start a list of freely (and legaly) available electronics primer and course material, books and other stuff, similar to the datasheet database.
There were some great links in various topics but they get easily lost.


freetechbooks.com has dozens of books on various topics.
Mostly computer sciences, programming and mathematics but also electric circuits and signal processing.
New material are added, a RSS feed is availible.


NEETS (Navy electricity and electronics training series) link
The Complete NEETS (Navy electricity and electronics training series) is available here http://www.phy.davidson.edu/instrumentation/NEETS.htm in PDF which you can download for FREE.Answers to asignments are NOT included if you are not 100% certain your answer is correct reread the lesson ALL answers are in the text.If you get stuck post on the forum.The module you need (for multivibrators ) is #9, but all are worth a read.

While it is from one specific company (hopefully not seen as spam, I promise I don't work for them) the tutorials on Sparkfun's website are pretty good. (http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials) The bite-sized tutorials in particular are nice for good information packed into small space for a quick read in your spare time. Not as much detail as you would get in, say, Horowitz and Hill, or even some of the other resources listed here, but a good place to start.

I've found this link quite helpful.  It is http://www.electronicstheory.com/html/cindex.htm.  It is an Electronics 101 Course that contains 75 Chapters on just about every undergrad subject for EE.  It's legal and free.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the MIT course materials on EE and CS:
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/

I just watched (yes, video) the first lecture from 6.002 (Circuits and Electronics) and I'm hooked! Especially at the end when Prof. Agarwal made a pickle glow :).  I can't believe I can get MIT education for free.

Then you have the Stanford SEE (more CS oriented)
http://see.stanford.edu/see/courses.aspx

Other schools have similar programs, but on the few I checked, they didn't have any electronics related material.

A mate of mine runs the Radio and Electronics School, www.res.net.au. It's mainly set up for students to gain their Amateur Radio licence, but you learn quite a bit about electronics as well, oh and it's free! It's run by volunteers. You can also join a Yahoo group for students to ask questions etc. Tell Ron Raff sent you!

Regards,
Raff.

Hi, and thank you very much. I was searching for exactly this, books for beginners with the basics. I now have a lot of reference books. I was on my local book store but everything was too advanced and confusing for me. Keep the great work up ;D

My first thought when I saw this thread was about the MIT OpenCourseWare.  Great stuff.  And in some of the cases, even the textbooks are available in electronic format (view only obviously).  I see the above mentioned 6.002 is one of them.

If I could only keep one of my books on electronics, This would be it:  http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Electronics-Inventors-Paul-Scherz/dp/0071452818/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1319339386&sr=1"-1  Practical electronics for inventors by Paul Scherz.
It is the "Art of Electronics" for the rest of us normal intelligence folk.  Even though it has many obvious errors it covers all aspects of electronics and goes into great depth on components. Every type of a component (carbon, wire wound, thin film, thick film, ceramic , etc.) is explained and why you would or would not use it. There is both graphical analogy explanation of electronic principals and the mathematical. Much of the info are very important topics that I have not seen anywhere else .  It is the one book that will stay on your bench.

I'm a complete beginner, therefore this thread is very useful for me. When I have time I will look through the primers. I bet they are really useful and avoid that I will came back and ask stupid questions in the forum. Thank you for this ;) Although it could happen that I have some further questions, I hope this is OK then!

I'm looking a good smps book, is anyone know where can I find switch mode power supply book ?

I have this  one : "HIGH-FREQUENCY SWITCHING POWER SUPPLIES : THEORY AND DESIGN" by George Chryssis - McGraw-Hill 
It's a little outdated and I don't know if a newer edition is available (mine is the second edition, circa 1989?)

Search on Amazon. You can find it and other, more recent books.

These are the three references that have helped me out the most so far:
     
   * Talking Electronics (books by Colin Mitchell)
   http://www.talkingelectronics.com/te_interactive_index.html

   * Op-Amps For Everyone
   http://www.ti.com/lit/an/slod006b/slod006b.pdf

   * The Electronics Club (website)
   http://www.kpsec.freeuk.com/index.htm

Op-Amps for everyone is par none the best resource for finding reference op-amp designs. Talking Electronics has LOTS of great material; however, I find many of the reference circuits have little problems (resistor values approximated, transistor junction voltage drops approximated etc). Lastly the website at the end provides many great tutorials on how to do praticle things.

Enjoy!

I forgot to mention there is a suppliment (sort of) to the Op-Amps for Everyone reference; it is called the "Handbook of Operational Amplifiers Applications". It can be found here: http://www.ti.com/lit/an/sboa092a/sboa092a.pdf

Together, these two references will describe everything you will ever need to know about op-amps!

Practical Electronics for Inventors is a nice book, Scherz really tries to explain the concepts as easy as possible. I like his water analogies. Also, lots of practical advice. However, as robrenz has already mentioned, it does contain many errors. It may be useful to print out this errata sheet and consult it frequently while reading the book:

http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/physics/ph235/errata.pdf

The number of errors might come as a shock, but I think for a beginner in electronics the advantage of good explanations outweighs the inconvenience of having to check for errors.

Here's two that I've found useful:
http://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/
http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/

I think both are excellent resources (maybe the best free resources on the web) if one is willing to systematically learn electronics, and to invest some time into it. Both do not demand any prior knowledge of electronics and provide very good and understandable explanations.

There is one chapter in allaboutcircuits that I highly recommend to everybody, even if one is only occasionally playing with electronic circuits, and this is the chapter on Electrical Safety:

http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_3/index.html

Carefully studying it might actually safe your life one day.

I am very new to this forum. In fact this is the first posting.  I am also not the best at proper etiquette or spelling.  Never the less, I hope i did not miss that this was allready posted in order to prevent redundancy, but I am a big fan of the encyclopedia of electronic circuits series.  There are no explanations on how the circuits really work, but there are thousands of circuits in which you can clone, modify and own.  Each book is about 1000 pages of nothing but circuits.  when you get the chance, you can look into it sometime.

Hi Guys, 

This is my first time posting.

After two courses in basic electronics, I'm reading two books:  1) "All New Electronics Self-Teaching Guide" by Harry Kybett and Earl Boyson.  2) "How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic" by Michael Jay Geier. 

They're quite interesting and easy to read.  Has anyone read these and/or have any opinions about them? 

p.s.: I'm just starting out with minimal gear.  I have 4 DMMs of different types, a 100MHz dual trace Tek465B analog scope, a 3 Amp linear PSU and a 200 project Radio Shack Electronics Learning Lab.  I just got an Elenco transistor/diode tester kit to build. My 12 year old son wants to learn to solder.

Thanks in advance for any feed-back.

PJinLA

I really like AfrotechMods' videos but he hasn't done many recently.  I was a fan of his site back in the early 2000's when he was doing videos of hard drive voice coils being used as speakers.

I've been making use of the MIT site http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/index.htm

It was mentioned earlier, but I've found it pretty useful. A lot of the courses have video lectures and assignments / exams.

I found a bunch of lectures from EE courses.  I like them.
Electronics For Analog Signal Processing - I http://www.youtube.com/course?list=EC4E1A7D28A90C9B41

Just go to http://www.youtube.com/user/nptelhrd/ and search for "Electrical". It seems they have their entire EE course on there. ( And some other stuff as well)

I now have 100+hrs of courses to watch. 
Before this, there was a typo.

I couldn't agree more, the MIT lectures are awesome!

And if you like old-style books on electronics, check out https://www.abebooks.com Type in "op amps" or whatever, and you'll get hundreds of books listed for around $3 or less. I enjoy the videos, but find books best for learning theory and formula. I'm building a small library of electronic texts for the price of coffee money (but I still like my coffee.)

Cheers!  -Vera

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the MIT course materials on EE and CS:
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/

I just watched (yes, video) the first lecture from 6.002 (Circuits and Electronics) and I'm hooked! Especially at the end when Prof. Agarwal made a pickle glow :).  I can't believe I can get MIT education for free.

Then you have the Stanford SEE (more CS oriented)
http://see.stanford.edu/see/courses.aspx

Other schools have similar programs, but on the few I checked, they didn't have any electronics related material.
Cheers!  -Vera

Great topic. :) I'm getting back into hobbyist electronics after years of software-only life, and I need something to refresh the stuff I learned at the university, and to augment it with practical knowledge in areas we never covered (such as audio)...

My question would be, what is a good source of practical knowledge? I spent long painful nights over Maxwell equations, Laplace transformations and transfer functions, but I am thoroughly lacking in practical stuff that got built up over years and years of engineering history - like sizing filter capacitors, when to use them, when to go with a Zener diode and when with an ohmic voltage divider, practical ways of helping an op-amp give its best, etc.

I've found something quite awesome. It's a for-money book, and rather on the pricey side (still, no Art of Electronics, haha), but I really like the way it looks at things from a new, top-down perspective.

If you have an android device, you can download for free Lessons in Electric Circuits from Google Play. It has helped me so much into understanding the great world of electronics.  :-+
Without it I would still be  |O :-// :scared: :rant: :wtf:

Also, if you prefer a proper book, buy Electronic Project Building for Beginners - Circuits and Projects by R.A. Penfold. It's a small, nice easy read covering pretty much anything to get you started. And it only cost me £5 :-DMM

 But my biggest support goes to our EEVBlog master David and to everyone on this forum. If you are willing to learn then they are willing to help. :clap:

In my specialty (Ship's mechanics) we use the Wildi:

http://www.wildi-theo.com/index.php?p=Books01
The current edition is the 6th.

The 4th and 5th can easily be found on internet get an idea if this is your cup of tea.
If you have an interest in AC motor and generators, it is well worth buying.

The instructor's manual is freely available (but apart from the intro useless without the book)
http://onlinebookbank.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/electrical-machines-drives-and-power-systems.pdf

It's well looking at his problem solving exercises, offered free of charge!

I've searched but couldn't find a mention of the Elenco Micro-Master MM-8000 8085 microprocessor basic systems course. Basically you go though the following booklet:

http://www.elenco.com/admin_data/pdffiles/MM8000K1.pdf

and build a basic 8085 single board computer. It's great fun and very detailed w.r.t. processor buses and timing. It did my soldering a world of good. I attach before and after pictures.

 If you want a good introduction to the true field nature of electricity, but is still approachable with only a good algebraic mathematical background; I highly recommend the article* "AC electrical theory" by David W. Knight. Not for true beginners, since some familiarity with dc ohm's law is required but this should provide an excellent beginning for someone who is particularly interested in how ac and rf circuits work. I must say, I was blown away with some of the concepts presented even though I learned basic electronics some time ago. Not the easiest read, but there are quite a few somewhat advanced topics and formulas covered in a rather, compact form, even so, the author derives them from previous concepts. The best part is that it is available on-line, although there is a copyright , in a 108 page pdf file along with other articles, some rather incomplete.

It was briefly mentioned a few pages back, but I want to bring up Digilent's classroom page again:

http://www.digilentinc.com/NavTop/Classroom.cfm

Of particular use/utility is their Circuits 1 course, found at:

http://www.digilentinc.com/Classroom/RealAnalog/

I am about 2/3 of the way through this course now, and the lectures and text are fantastic. This course is more mathematically rigorous than many of the free texts out there, but it is extremely doable. I have learned the differential equations as I went along, and the calculus is possible to learn along the way as well. It really is a much better treatment of the subject than an algebra-based course on introductory circuits, and I recommend it to any newcomer, even those with an aversion to mathematics.

For Physics: Electricity and Magnetism material, I highly recommend Michel Van Biezen's youtube series, found at:

http://www.youtube.com/user/ilectureonline

His series centers on solving homework-style problems, and less of an outright lecture. Nonetheless, I have found his videos extremely well put together, and very informative. Good stuff for learning about charge, voltage, fields, energy, etc.
It's perfectly acceptable to not know something in the short term. To continue to not know over the long term is just laziness.

Beginners may like this one:



The downloadable textbook covers both hardware, interfacing and software design. It is based around
the Atmel AVR range of microcontrollers and the Bascom AVR cross compiler from MCS Electronics.

Whoah! Tons of stuff!

Any volunteer to organize it and put it in the first post?

I'm bad at maths, I have problems with complex numbers. Are there some easy tutorial about it?

48520 Electronics and Circuits Lecture Notes. 2015, by Peter McLean, University of Technology, Sydney.
http://services.eng.uts.edu.au/pmcl/ec/Downloads/LectureNotes.pdf
Mainly lots of theory about analyzing linear circuits.

By the same author - 48551 Analog Electronics Lecture Notes, 2014.
http://services.eng.uts.edu.au/pmcl/ae/Downloads/LectureNotes.pdf
The theoretical parts are mostly about filter circuits. But Lecture 4, Passive Components, contains lots of information about all kinds of capacitors and resistors.

It looks like TI has jumped into the online education realm with their TI Precision Labs

The introductory video makes it look promising. I think I'll give it a go.

Electronic Circuits 1, Video Lectures by Behzad Razavi (2014)

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7qUW0KPfsIIOPOKL84wK_Qj9N7gvJX6v

At about the level of Sedra / Smith, but without digital circuits. At the start of each video a lecture map is displayed that shows the title of all 45 video lectures.

EDIT: Added attachment, screenshot of the lecture map so you can see the title of each lecture. Thanks KD0CAC John for pointing this out to me.

I would like you to recommend me a book that fits the description below:

A book on telecommunication systems. It should be explaining the basics of telecommunications, from the early analog modulation schemes to digital modulation. How modern telecommunication infrastructures work (i.e., mobile phones, landline telephones, internet and so on). Things on fiber optics, 3G and 4G and all these jargons. Explanations on the 'block diagram' level. No low-level design, circuits and such.

I could be asking for too much, and yeah, these can be obtained from the internet, but it wouldn't be easy to gather a reasonable amount of consistent, reliable and correct information. Getting knowledge from a book, and from a good author, is something I appreciate.

Found this a few weeks ago, when searching for DDS literature. It is an *awesome* resource.
It's perfectly acceptable to not know something in the short term. To continue to not know over the long term is just laziness.

I'm not sure if this has been posted before but the ITP Physical Computing material is very good.  The videos in particular are clear and well paced for beginners. It is Arduino centric - not surprising since one of the instructors is Tom Igoe -  one of the Arduino founders

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for but the HP Journal from April 1989 covers the technical aspects behind the design of the HP3458, Very serious high end voltage measurement.  Heavy reading but very good.
Whoah! Watch where that landed we might need it later.

Learning to use EAGLE

Some time ago, Jason of RPC Electronics did a nice series of 14 videos giving a primer of how to use EAGLE.
http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC66ImnJYgX_j5EeWkeU-1_A
While this series is for EAGLE v5 it should still be valid for later versions. I think this is about the easiest way
to learn the basics of EAGLE.

I gathered all his videos in this download for offline viewing.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/fjt9u55d61uu6gu/RPC.zip about 460 MB.

Just found a fascinating study on the thermal performance characteristics between IC packages. I did not know that PCB layout/design was SO much more important a factor than that of package size. I had always been of the mindset I used when cooling CPU's. That the more surface area you can get your dedicated heatsink on, the better. Seems that proper design allowing the board to absorb the thermal energy can be a much more effective/efficient.

I have recently encountered a very useful resource giving information about all aspects of electronics including news, use of test equipment and explaining applications such as the different types of oscilloscope probe and what they can be used for. It also has a section on electronic components which is excellent for noobs. :)

The link to some specific sections that can be reached via their home page (http://www.radio-electronics.com) can be found below:

Test equipment

Book on microcontrollers
https://leanpub.com/mastering-stm32

A response from the editor:

http://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/economics-of-writing-a-technical-ebook/
Quote
Hi,
I'm the author of the Mastering STM32 book  :) First of all I would like to say thank you for having mentioned it here.

The actual income of the book is far from that amount, for two main reasons. Firstly, the "variable pricing" policy of the LeanPub platform (the most of the readers choose to pay the minimum price - but it's also ok, IMHO). Secondly, I'm increasing the book price as long as I add new chapters. So, the very early adopters of this book paid for it about 5$ (and they will receive all updates for free). However, this is part of the game, and it's ok. Moreover, it's important to say that some other people decided to buy the book again to pay it more. This is the "leanpub effect", I say.

I started this book for fun, but I've deeply evaluated the publishing options when I started doing it. The self-publishing is the only way to get decent incomes if you write a technical book about a niche. Publishers, assuming they want to publish your book, give only a fraction of the "distribution price", which is far from the cover price. Another relevant reason to choose a platform like LeanPub is that it allows to write "in progress" books. This is extremely useful for technical books, IMHO. It gives you the possibility to review the book and correct "unavoidable bugs". Moreover, early comments from readers allow to you to better organize the contents, avoiding writing useless and boring things. However, self-publishing has it's "hidden costs". For example, in my case english is not my mother language. So I'll have to pay an editor that helps me reviewing the text. And I think that reviewing a book made of about 1000 pages is not inexpensive.

From my experience, writing a technical book is a really hard work. I started writing my book about one year ago, and my life is changed dramatically :o No longer free time, a lot of email to answer every days. However, apart from the earnings (which are not sufficient to pay your bills  :D), knowing that other people can take advantage from a thing you are doing is a great satisfaction.

I'm a complete beginner, therefore this thread is very useful for me. When I have time I will look through the primers. I bet they are really useful and avoid that I will came back and ask stupid questions in the forum. Thank you for this ;) Although it could happen that I have some further questions, I hope this is OK then!

All, I recently bought the http://artofelectronics.net/ the Art of Electronics and started from scratch: Chapter 1. Together with the reference book this is really great great and fantastic! Enormously good reading and guidance I highly highly recommend this to anyone to own, read, study and practice.

It brings a smile, deception and eureka on my face for sure!

Hello everyone!
I found a good Youtube channel with the first ~20 experiments from the book "Make: Electronics: Learning Through Discovery" by Charles Platt. Haven't watched it yet but it must be really good: http://www.youtube.com/user/christophermball/videos

Hope serves you well :)

Two books with distinctive approaches: (1) tearing down and (2) building up.

(1) Bryan Bergeron, ‘Teardowns: Learn How Electronics Work by Taking Them Apart’ (2010, McGraw-Hill)
Preview at https://books.google.com/books?id=9GwDb1ELd2sC&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false

Devices featured are not as exotic as the test equipment in Dave’s videos, but if you like the guided-tour approach with lots of commentary on components and circuit functions, along with some design critique, it’s well worth looking at. Items covered (or uncovered) include smoke alarms, motion-activated lights, surge protectors, ultrasonic humidifiers, stereo amplifiers, analog VOM. There are also three chapters on electric guitars + effects pedals + tube amps.

(2) Abraham Marcus and William Marcus, ‘Elements of Radio’ (multiple editions: 1943, 1948, 1953, 1959, 1965, 1973)
1953 edition: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=coo.31924004082834

Unfortunately I can’t find a PDF version of a more recent edition of this book online (it’s not to be confused with Marcus’s ‘Elements of Radio Servicing’, which is easier to track down). I have the 6th edition (1973), which is divided into two parts. Part 1 describes, using little or no math, how to build a simple crystal radio and then, step by step, turn it into a superheterodyne AM receiver. Part 2 is a more technical (i.e., some equations, but still introductory) discussion of DC, AC, inductance, capacitance, impedance, resonance, etc.

The catch is that the book was first published in 1943 and the superheterodyne receiver is built around vacuum tubes. Later editions (6th, 1973; 5th, 1965 [I think; it's got a picture of Telstar on the cover . . .]) add some chapters on semiconductors and show how a tube receiver can be turned into a transistor receiver, but the bulk of the book is tube-oriented. Nevertheless, the book’s strategy of introducing a basic circuit and improving and refining it, with fulsome explanations of each change and plenty of circuit diagrams, is extremely effective in communicating both the how and the why at every stage of development. As a result, the discussions of tubes are valuable because they are lessons in basic theory, not explanations of an older technology that many beginners have little interest in learning. And if you are reading a more recent edition of the book, the presentation of transistors neatly builds on the earlier presentation of tubes.

I think if anyone wants to learn "street smarts" around RF radio, http://www.repeater-builder.com has enough guides, manuals, DIY's and pdf's to sink a ship. Just found it since someone gifted me two radio's: a Motorola Radius M120 and a Yaesu-Vertex VX-2100. This kind of gear runs a lot of service bureau's, fire, police, ambulance, emerg. etc.. so a tech never has to be unaware this segment of equipment not seen in typical consumer box stores.

Just found this (apologies if already mentioned)
http://www.mosaic-industries.com/embedded-systems/microcontroller-projects/electronic-circuits/push-button-switch-turn-on/latching-toggle-power-switch

This particular page shows many circuits of on-off function from a push button with very clear circuits and good explanation.
The pages are well written and well laid out.

The site is a good reference for all things electronic, and has excellent navigation on the left hand pane.
Many resources for micro-contoller peripherals,  interfaces, touch screens etc.

Awe shucks, that's just anger management. You ever think some bad EE projects may need fluid force before tossing in the trash?

    Actually I am looking for MCU links
You may want to add to an item I posted in sub-forum MCU's & FPGA's about the need for a resource sticky there too. It's funny how folks that type so much (coding) had no resource list to help out with the basic stuff.. Maybe they like asking and answering the same questions over and over? I don't know..

Hi ez24, good idea. Long messy url's should be hidden and a short description can be given instead, like this (thanks to Ian.M for lending me his brain):
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.example.com/anypage]description text for link goes here[/url]Wish I could offer more, but I leave for the Caribbean Tuesday (I've just 3-weeks to forget about the Canadian snow..)

I am a semi-retired electronics instructor and I am in the process of putting my curriculum online for free. I think I have a unique and useful way of explaining electronics. People commenting on my YouTube channel seem to agree. Everything is free and is suitable for students who want to learn electronics from the ground up and for instructors who want to give their students an alternate point of view. You can find my text lessons at http://rsdacademy.net. My YouTube channel is https://youtube.com/channel/UCOausWDNRDJikQ11gSLj7nA
This is a work in progress but I have complete lessons in basic DC Circuits, AC Circuits and Solid State Devices. I am currently working on Analog Circuits. I hope people find these resources useful.

Welcome to EEVblog! Yes, you do have that "classic teachers touch" (starting to review them now)
I think you should make a posting also in the other blogs section (this way it adds to the Electronics YouTubers list).

I have never seen anyone criticized for posting a link to their video.  This forum has its roots based on YT (Dave makes his living on YT).  I suggest you add your YT channel to your profile so it shows every time you make a post.  You also can add a link to your web site.  I added a link to the YT list in my profile (see below).

I do not know about multiple posts on the same subject - that might be frowned on ?

You can make new posts showing off your new uploads.  For example you could make a new post on your new diode video and include a link to it.  Since the diode video is a basic one, I would list it under Beginners.  Even though this forum is not a beginners forum, I appreciate them.  There might be a few of us hiding in the corners.

Keep up the good work and keep the videos coming :-+

This should be listed in the Wiki..

if you go to raspberrypi.org there you will find a HUGE wealth of very high quality stuff all relevant to learning electronics and computing fundamentals on the Raspberry Pi platform which in case you've been dead the last few years, started out a mere five years ago as a project to make a credit card sized computer that cost $35 for everybody.

Well, THEY SUCCEEDED and now its five years later and they have sold millions of them and its incredibly useful device for everybody and their most recent one, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B actually is more powerful than many laptops and tablets are today. And its still $35.

When you get there, go to "MagPi" their own magazine, which is quite professionally done, and there you'll find a wealth of download-able material.

 Their magazine is basically educational project ideas geared towards everybody from smart teenagers to kids, with content so good it will likely also appeal to scientists and engineers, actually pretty much EVERY KIND OF PERSON who frequents this unique community will find something useful there. "I guarantee it!"  ;)

...everything from free BOOKs on Bash scripting and beginning C programming for beginners, to four huge PDF "project books" each containing dozens of projects, using the Raspberry Pi hardware family (some of which cost as little as $5 or $10 now). And they all involve either electronics or programming.

In addition to these books, there are more than 50 issues of their magazine which is chock full of even more cool Linux stuff to do - some of which you can ALSO do with various kinds of modification or not on Ubuntu or Mint, (or even RedHat's based pidora or fedora!) one way or another. Theres also a bunch of other stuff thats also free, for example some books specifically for teachers. Its really quite a high quality effort, very little elsewhere on this rapidly shrinking planet is even remotely comparable.

MagPi is a jewel .

Tektronix also did a complete set of labs on on the Pi and Arduino. Doesn't seem to be available anymore. Perhaps it was for the earlier hardware generations and needed updating so they took it down.

My guess is they took the labs down and include them with their Edu scope to increase its educational value.  Too bad

How Does a Switching Power Supply Work (schematic, explanation, example, modifications)  This is sure to help SMPS newcomers.
From the legend himself (DanyK of Czechoslovakia) one of oldest circuit listing and help websites on the net, and still strong!


*Also check his website for more educational material (I like this 3-phase monster http://danyk.cz/3f_vyb_en.html )

These are great! Siglent or Rigol should jump on that opportunity, if Keysight or Tek aren't going to.

As posted a short while ago, DanyK (aka DiodeGoneWild) finally has a scope. In his usual DaveCad fashion, he put together a nice-short primer.

Hey all:

Here are a couple of sources I've been using to learn about Arduino (I know, dumb...) and the ESP8266:

https://leanpub.com/kolban-ESP32

https://www.udemy.com/

The first is a *free online book by somebody who really knows about computers, and who has written 400+ pages about setting up and using the ESP8266.

The second has a number of courses related to electronics in general and microcontrollers in particular; some topics to browse might include Arduino, IoT, ARM micros, robotics and home automation.

*Neither source is strictly free, but Mr. Kolban's download link wouldn't let me pay him any money, and Udemy is constantly running introductory discounts for new students that drastically slash their prices, so it might pay to check it out.

Apologies if these have already been mentioned; this thread is getting kinda long.... Which shows that there is a lot of interest.

Hi all:

On the same topic as my previous post, here's a link that I would not have known about had I not registered for an Arduino course on udemy.com. As far as I can tell through a cursory overlook, EVERYTHING on this site is totally free. Not only Arduino-related material, but also a wealth of information on RaspberryPi, programming in C, microcontrollers in general, plus analog and digital electronics and a lot more that I have not yet delved into. There are forums, downloadable code snippets and quite a few videos.

https://core-electronics.com.au/

(After that glowing review, please let me state categorically that I have NO personal or commercial involvement with these people; I just think they have a well-organized & informative site. They run work$hops in Australia, and--I don't wish to incur the wrath of Mr. Jones by potentially tapping into his lucrative market share--they also sell stuff....)

Hi to everyone,
I want to learn more about control systems, mainly digital control systems - theory and practical  uses. Recently i had to implement a PID controll with a microcontroller and while i managed do it with the help of random google results and youtube tutorials i want to learn about it in more consistent way.
Can you recommend me a book or other source of information in this field?
I've heard good thinks about Modern Control Engineering by Katsuhiko Ogata and Control Systems Engineering by Norman S. Nise seems to be populer choice. Should i get them?
Thanks a ton!

I did about half of this free control systems course when it was offered.  It was pretty good. I'm not sure if they will offer it again but you can try registering and see if you can access the archived course.

Vintage 22-minute Tektronix video on transmission lines

I happened across this vid the other day.  About the best basic tutorial on wave reflection I have seen.  They KNEW how to make their instructional videos intuitive back then.
At least I'm still older than my test equipment

Hi Avogadro we use this thread for listing free resources.
Starting a new thread like the one you started for books on amplifiers and other analog circuits will probably get better responses.

Hey thanks everyone for posting these resources... there's so many its hard to tell which one might be right for me!

I just started on the more physical side of the electronic journey (I'm really good with things like Raspberry pi's and the like but so many parts of the physical aspects of circuits and power are still mysterious to me).

My old Weller soldering iron was giving out and, thinking about reviews of new ones, ran into EEVBlog and Dave's awesome youtube videos... I gotta say he's super entertaining.

Many calculators for a wide range of electronic parameters: slick, comprehensive, and simple to use.

There is even a 'formula builder' where you can define your own formulas.
