Beautifully Made Electronics Reference Posters
« on: April 10, 2015, 12:42:19 am »
Hi everyone! :) I'm Joseph and I have a personal campaign project I'd like to share. I've made 2 quick reference posters for everyone to use: the Fundamentals and Schematics. I've made a campaign at Indiegogo. Here's the link:

http://igg.me/at/tinkrpostr

I'm planning to expand them and make a comprehensive and organized reference poster, but for the meantime I've made only two. You can use them as a reference or a well deco at your lab, office or home. Frames are also available if you like.

The contents on the posters aren't yet final and I hope there is something you would like to add or modify. Feel free to post your comments. I'd like to know what you think. Thanks!  :D

Very nice.
One with some basic building block circuit would be nice.

FETs are n-channel or p-channel, BJTs are NPN or PNP. Just nitpicking  ;D

Thanks for the inputs!  :) Yeah, I agree they're pretty basic. I have started some on the advanced a month ago, but I've prioritized the easier ones. I'm not sure if this campaign would work though I'm glad I have the guts to start one! Thanks everyone.

Nice graphic design work. The content should be more advanced though. I think we all know what diode symbols and breadboard look like, or that "micro" means e-6 etc.

If it was more advanced the more advanced target market might not want, or need, the posters. I think aiming at beginners is appropriate.
I don't encourage you to make too many changes other than fix errors.

I think the to-92 pinout is wrong or at least there isn't a standard. I'd need to check this but I don't think BC548 and 2N3903 are the same pinout. In any case for beginners you ought to show a picture with leads visible and extended. I'd consider omiting the AWG section.

There was an Indiegogo campaign a year or so ago that made diagrams for Arduino and related things. It was a fairly successful campaign as far as I recall.
This one.
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/arduino-basic-connections-the-book

It might give you some ideas if you weren't already aware of it.

Thank you for reviewing it. What could be a good replacement for AWG? I was also inspired by the Arduino Basic Connections which everyone would really need.

Good idea! Since I've already prepared the graphics for the components of the schematics that'd be easier. I have some few book and online references in hand to use as guide. If you have some good references to suggest, I'd better check it out.

Adding some formulas like Ohms triangle and the op-amp gain ( both inverting and non-inverting ) schematic with a little formula would be nice, The TO-92 could be changed by putting the NPN transistor simbol "inside" the pachage, to show how it's connected and also do it in different pin-outs while also giving a couple example part numbers next to them.
Just started a blog at http://brimmingideas.blogspot.com/ . Not much in it as of now but more is sure to come :)

Hello everyone,

I redid all the basic connections (there are currently over 120 cards, another 100 in preparation) and are available for free at my site.
http://www.pighixxx.com/test/abc/
Within short tutorials for all cards.

Thanks to all!

:) that's not nitpicking, but you knew that. I see what you did there.

However, this is nitpicking: Although you could get away with it, I've never heard them called E-Type or D-Type , or Enhancement Type, or Depletion Type MOSFETS.  You should not perpetuate that.  They are Enhancement Mode and Depletion Mode MOSFETS.

Thank you for backing up! I've seen your the second one who made the contribution which I am really happy about.  :D

Btw mike, you forgot to add the shipping which is $10 for US. If this makes any hassle, I'll create another shipping perk where you can just add it up in one click.

Again, thank you! :-)

Oops!  Sorry about that.  I am trying to figure out how to do this this but it doesn't seem too user friendly.  Can I just make no-perk contribution for the shipping cost?  I want it shipped to Mauritius island btw.  Not the US or Canada.

Thanks!

Sure, mike! That's possible. You can use the "no perk" and directly contribute. Make sure you have your name on it or any indication it's yours.

 About the shipping to Mauritius, that'd be $18. The $10 was for the US. If you have any concern, send me a reply or PM me. Thanks again! :-)

These are outstanding. Not 100% perfect, but definitely inline with what I've been looking for.
I hope you can meet your goal and I might get in on it. $35 shipped for a 2' x 3' poster (2-in-1) is not a terrible price.

Sadly it does not appear as if you're going to meet your goal. But I contributed none-the-less. Hopefully you'll be able to print some posters anyway. I really do want one to hang up above my work table.

If not, hopefully will send out some high res images instead.

But IGG has "Flexible Funding":  "This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal."
So they will get my $29 in any case.  I was the first "contributor".

No worries. I'll still send out the posters even though if we can't met the goal. I created this project as my reference for future projects as well. The graphics will be probably used for a reference book or app. One thing that I've greatly learned from this project is that the reviews, comments and changes that must be made is very crucial before releasing it to public.

For those who haven't added the shipping, you can add it by contributing a "no perk" contribution. Please refer to the info on the campaign page about the varying shipping fees depending on the location.

Just keep in touch for updates. Cheers!

Outstanding. I really do like these posters. I look forward to getting one and anything else you do in the future.
By the way, I forgot to add shipping, so I went ahead and added that right now.

Thanks!

Hi;

On poster 1.5 on the regulatores section you have a symbol for a 78XX and you mentioned also the 79XX.
Please be careful because the 79XX often doesn't have the pinout of the 78XX.

Edit: Error!

I think @ElectricGuy meant that the 79xx regulator has a different pinout than the 78xx series.
It would be immensely helpful to show BOTH of them on the poster.

Also note, most UV LEDs are around 3-4V Vf. I think you're thinking of IR LEDs with that wavelength? UV would be sub 400nm.

This makes sense, because the Vf is basically the band gap the electrons have to drop in the semiconductor material. As the wavelength goes up the required band gap increases (obviously there are some other second-order effects going on that don't make it completely linear, and varying Vf does not significantly change the wavelength... but it's still worth noting.)

And it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to specify a wavelength for white LEDs? Not only are white LEDs one of the most widely defined types (warm, cool, neutral, etc.) the wavelength is most certainly not one value. It's a wide spectrum, with two emission points...

Other than that, the posters look excellent!

In the capacitor coding bit, you have explained "103" as "10 x 103", shurely this should read "1 x 10^03", or "one, with 03 zeroes"?. I always find explaining this a bit clumsy!

ps. Excellent work!

    Great posters. Just some suggestions/ideas:

    • I think letters should be made more readable for people with vision problems or reading it from long distances, but that can make less space for useful information.
    • What about maths? I have problems remembering those, looking at them daily would help me to remember them. From analog to digital, all spectrum of basic formulas without using more than equations. I attached a quite outdated attempt to make an electronics formula sheet (it's in Spanish, but I think most can be understood).
    • What about putting symbols along with their physical versions? I understand this is more artsy, but I retrieve information better in a very structured and related way.
    • I think logic/digital should have it's own poster.
      • Binary calculations and binary codes
      • 74xx and 40x family
      • Logic gates
      • Combinational circuits
      • Small guide to do Karnaugh maps
      • Secuential circuits (flip flops, adders and substractors, state machines and such).
      • How to read chronograms
      • Multiplexors and a long etc).
      • ***This needs good explaining of each concept in schematic and example way, not easy to make it in small space. The attached poster has some good ideas, but it goes the HIPSTER way with that old school must space wasting and barely legible style (not useful for real reference, just look like a tech hipster).
      As a newbie electronics student with
learning difficulties, I find some concepts extremely difficult to understand.
  • One of them is Transistors in their different variants, including FET ones and Darlington configuration (another resource here. I found there are some sources  somewhat describe it in very simple ways (and this one too), but  I yet messed with ordering the concepts in my mind and the maths on it. I find the Ebers–Moll Model useful to understand, but it's incomplete and I'm stick at many stuff
  • Problems with voltage amplifiers, rectifiers and such
  • Another is about "triangle" configurations known Y-? transform or Kennely, Thevenin and Norton.

Of course those are suggestions from an electronics newbie like me. I don't understand your motivations and conclusions for this great piece of work, but I find them quite nice

Anyway, I can provide help you translating them to Spanish! I don't care about having the English ones and I prefer it to not forget the language, but others would be quite interested[/list][/list]

Yeah, somebody dropped the ball there.
Shows the importance of multiple proof-readers.
I don't think I have ever heard of an inverter called a "not-gate"
But whatever you call it, there is but a single input node.

Yes, you're right! I did get distracted by the fake dirty and forgot that obvious fail. Mayeb they confused OpAmp and Not/inverter symbol?

Here people call it an inverter or a not gate, but I'm in a mere vocational training school :P

NOT is totally fine. Or aren't you saying NOR or NAND? The small cycle at the output makes everying a NOT whatsoever.

PS: Some posters with standard connectors and pinouts would be quite handy.

These are very useful references, thanks for compiling these. I agree with all of these. I made the posters as personal quick references and I forgot to add a bit of instructions / descriptions. I believe that I have missed a lot of things and it maybe feasible to incorporate all of these things with more effort in the future. But these would be really great additionals to future posters.

I'm planning more on making a handy booklet/app as a future project as I think it would be more appropriate having these graphics. There are already existing ones but I'm thinking of starting it small and further develop it.

Having a Spanish version would be nice! Would be helpful to Spanish learners. Thanks for your interest! :-)

This was actually an error with the previous version. Most of the time, when doing the graphics, I often copy paste and modify it to make it much faster. In this case, I copied a two pin gate and forgot to delete a pin. I already corrected this with the new one.

Proofreaders are very crucial indeed. Thanks!

      • ***This needs good explaining of each concept in schematic and example way, not easy to make it in small space. The attached poster has some good ideas, but it goes the HIPSTER way with that old school must space wasting and barely legible style (not useful for real reference, just look like a tech hipster).
      As a newbie electronics student with
learning difficulties, I find some concepts extremely difficult to understand.
  • One of them is Transistors in their different variants, including FET ones and Darlington configuration (another resource here. I found there are some sources  somewhat describe it in very simple ways, but  I yet messed with ordering the concepts in my mind and the maths on it. I find the Ebers–Moll Model useful to understand, but it's incomplete and I'm stick at many stuff
  • Problems with voltage amplifiers, rectifiers and such
  • Another is about "triangle" configurations known Y-? transform or Kennely, Thevenin and Norton.

Of course those are suggestions from an electronics newbie like me. I don't understand your motivations and conclusions for this great piece of work, but I find them quite nice

Anyway, I can provide help you translating them to Spanish! I don't care about having the English ones and I prefer it to not forget the language, but others would be quite interested[/list][/list]

These are very useful references, thanks for compiling these. I agree with all of these. I made the posters as personal quick references and I forgot to add a bit of instructions / descriptions. I believe that I have missed a lot of things and it maybe feasible to incorporate all of these things with more effort in the future. But these would be really great additionals to future posters.

I'm planning more on making a handy booklet/app as a future project as I think it would be more appropriate having these graphics. There are already existing ones but I'm thinking of starting it small and further develop it.

Having a Spanish version would be nice! Would be helpful to Spanish learners. Thanks for your interest! :-)

Thanks for your idea, it seems interesting.

I have no problems translating all your works to Spanish. Just quote me in your works if the result is successful. Send me a PM if you're interested and I can make a try ;)

I'm just a newbie, I'm sure others could provide a better feedback than me. That's just my experience struggling with electronics, despite I like it, it's becoming a very difficult topic for me for many reasons.

There are a bunch of electronics apps for Android, but they are often not so updated and lack some interesting stuff. Some have different kind of calculators, others provide resistor color code helping and others have formulas too.

Forrest Mim books seems like a interesting reference, for example. I'm not sure about other's opinions, but maybe this is too entry level for many people here :)

Sure, I'll better prepare for it and have it reviewed first by experts to make sure I made them right. Thanks! :-)

Absolutely agree. Any updates should be added and errors corrected before the posters go to print.
It may seem simple, but an incorrect pin out or calculation can blow a circuit or even cause physical injury.

I look forward to eventually getting a copy none-the-less. It will go nicely above my electronics work table and I'm sure to use it often for quick reference.

Great idea on these posters!  I see you did not reach your full goal.  Are you still making them?  Would it be possible to buy them individually?

Hi Jeff, I'm planning to make a temporary site where to get orders. You can also buy them individually. For the mean time, send me a PM to order one with shipping and email address since the campaign is already closed. Thanks!

Hi Joe, sorry for the delays. I'm still finishing up the posters and will send them out within this month. They will be printed and shipped from the US btw. Would update you soon. :-)

I just wanted to provide an update on this for those interested... The seller come through on his promise and I received my poster today.

I also want to say I'm very happy. It's well printed and on heavy paper. Not that glossy thin crap you see on almost every other poster.
In fact, I'm going to buy a frame before hanging it. It's just too nice.

Also, it was very well packed. Kudos for attention to detail!

I put the poster in a frame (will be replaced later with a better one), and it's now hanging above my electronics table.

Thanks again to Joseph Ricafort. I hope you have more projects in the future.

Here's some stuff what I'd like "posterized" in a very comprehensive way:

- Physics and mathematics related to electronics.
- Digital electronics: Binary codes, combinational logic, Karnaugh for dummies, secuential logic for dummies (including FSMs: Mealey, Morgan).
- Transistors for total and brain damaged dummies.
- Operational Amplifiers.
- Logic ICs: 74xx and 40xx families.
- Analog theory,  circuit theorems: Kirchoff, Thevenin, Norton, Kennelly, Superposition, Millman, Maximum Power Transfer, Miller, Belevitch, Poynting, Tellegen...

- All about diodes: Zener, etc
- Construction: Breadboard, Manhattan, Stripboard, PCBs (including home-made ones, chemicals and how to prepare them, etching, exposure box usage, tips & tricks...), soldering & desoldering (THT, SMT, solder tips, techniques, recommendations about appropriate equipment for each tasks...), workbench.
- Something about LEDs, lens and light physics?

I consider this a good index to get some inspiration: http://electronicsclub.info/menu.htm

Maybe you've already caught this, but the JFETS are backwards... N-Channel is listed as P, and P is listed as N.



On thing to remember about any of the electronic symbols:  the arrow refers to a diode inside the transistor, and the pointy part of the arrow ALWAYS points to the N-type silicon.

diode:


N-JFET and P-JFET

Thanks for checking things out. I've already checked the BJTs and the MOSFETs. Looks like I might have left that one out.  :-+

Hi,

I just try to buy downloadable copy from your web site but its failed the paypal purchase. When I filled out your checkout form and click on "Proceed with Paypal" button, than I getting an error message. The error message say "Invalid shipping method". There is something wrong with your order form.

Thanks

Hi Rudolf,

I've added a "No Shipping ( For Downloads Only )" on the shipping option. It will automatically be the shipping option if you only buy the downloads without any printed posters.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks! :-)

Hi Circuiteromalaguito,

Sorry for not been able to connect with you lately, been busy for awhile. I'm open towards collaboration with you and we have the passion to make more of this.

Will let you know when its ready.

Thanks!

Hi Armandas,

Quite been busy for awhile. Not familiar with Teespring yet but I'll check it out. If I've got some time, I'll be having them also  available in my blogstore. josericafort.com

Thanks for checking them out!
