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 previously found (by looking for op amps) your YouTube channel and added it to the YT lists.  I liked your YT op amps video.  Keep up the good work.   :-+   I need to add your member name to the list, but the list is going to have a major change tomorrow.

Cliff Matthews: thanks for the suggestion. I thought of posting my announcement in some other sections, but I don't want to get spammy (I have already been accused of posting spam at another forum just for making the one post.) If nobody minds posting in multiple sections I'll do that.

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 :-+

TI makes BLDC control look easy in their TI InstaSpin (no hall sensors) training material. WMMV, but I like the video.

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 )

I found this one for the TI MSP430

Anyone have the .ino files?

(cont'd) Here is part #2 of DanyK's SMPS basics course:


*edit - This guy is one of the smartest guys in action (on YouTube). Sure wish Keysight would have mercy and send him a new o-scope...
Everyone would gain from the knowledge he shares, right?

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