Title: Youtube Channels and Podcasts about Electronics
Post by: victor on October 03, 2013, 04:09:25 am
I'm subscribed to EEVBlog channel and the AmpHour podcast, but it is not enough for me, could anyone  recommend nice Youtube channels and podcasts or blogs about electronics.


I'm going to keep a list of channels recommended in this thread to other people.

Harvs, thanks I subscribed to all of then.

Dave I really appreciate your effort keeping a schedule, I know how much time it takes, thank you, really I'm glad that I found you.

How about podcasts, there are any out there like the Amp Hour? I really enjoy listening the show on my iPod or in the car, I still listening to old episodes, but I'm almost there.

What are you interested in? General Electronics? Microcontrollers? Other stuff?

I've got several YT channels that I like that are Microcontroller related.

I'd be interested in those too.

Sciguy14 (Jeremy Blum) - That's what got me interested in Arduino. It's more of a beginner guide to the language but pretty good because it takes you through LEDs, Servos, Pir sensors, ultra sonic sensors.
ChikenParmi aka Jaidyn Edwards - Microcontroller and robot related
Derek Molloy - He's an electronics instructor at Dublin City University. He has a lot of stuff on the BeagleBone, Arduino and Raspberry Pi. A lot of it focuses on embedded Linux. (He sounds a lot like Roy from IT Crowd)
HumanHardDrive - General electronics, Arduino programming, AVR-C (Atmel Studio) programming
Patrick Hood-Daniel - Lots of AVR stuff. He gets into the pins, what they do, how you map things to them, bit shifting etc.

Oh and not microcontroller related but Afrotechmods is still one of my all time favorites. Very well explained guides on what electrical components do. He doesn't seem to be making any more videos though, but I do see him on this forum from time to time.

Transistor / MOSFET tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Te5YYVZiOKs#ws)

Oh yeah, anything by Collin Cunningham. He's worked for Make and now works for Adafruit but he's done some of his own videos as well. He seems like he might be a bit eccentric in real life but he's really into analog electronics and stuff that makes sounds.

Yep, I recommend him anyone taking a controls course and doesn't get their lecturers explanation of pole/zero placement and effects.  He takes more of a practical view on it than most lecturers I've known.

FYI, Martin is the only other full time engineering blogger in the industry. I felt lonely being the only one!

This is a stretch but the antiprotons channel is really good. All his stuff deals in electron volts and KeV.  (Radiation)

Thanks guys for recommending very good stuff.
I'm interested in everything from mechanics going all the way around to analog electronics, to digital, micro-controllers, software, to chemistry, to quantum mechanics.

I watch pretty much everything. Don't judge me hahaha :P
