There are many versions of the symbol for each component in electronics. Below I’ve listed the ones I’m using the most.
Basic Electronics Resource Library
Without a good understanding of basic concepts such as current and voltage, it's going to be hard (or impossible) to understand how different circuits work.
But it doesn't have to be hard. Do *not* confuse basic electronics with "all electronics theory that exist". A lot of books and blogs make this mistake. And it's discouraging for beginners.
Basic electronics is easy.
This page is a library of resources to help you learn the real basics of electronics.
The PNP transistor is a mystery to many. But it doesn’t have to be. If you want to design circuits with transistors, it’s really worth knowing about this type of transistor. For example: Want to automatically turn on a light when it gets dark? The PNP transistor will make this easy for you. In my […]
There’s some confusion going on when it comes to how to choose a power supply. So, I thought I’d clear up some doubts, and give you a simple, beginner-friendly way of choosing a power supply. Let’s start with the basics. A power supply has a voltage and a current specification: The voltage is the output […]
There’s a bunch of places to buy electronic components. Myself, I love to go to a brick-and-mortar store to buy components, because then I can get them without waiting. Unfortunately, many cities don’t have these anymore. So what do you do?
Do you have a circuit that doesn’t work? Do you feel you’ve done everything you could? You’ve reconnected the circuit 100 times, and it still doesn’t work? You’ve put in so much effort, but still no reward… How does that feel? Are you starting to feel like building electronic circuits might not be for you? […]
Do you have an idea for an electronics project that you want to build? Are you stuck because you don’t know how to start? Well, then this is for you… Whenever I take on a new project that is very different from anything I’ve ever done before, this happens: Let’s say I want to build […]
