Basic Electronics for Tomorrow's Inventors: A Thames and Kosmos Book

Nick Dossis


Learn approximately electronics with enjoyable experiments and projects

Created in partnership with Thames & Kosmos, Basic Electronics for Tomorrow's Inventors introduces you to crucial electronics techniques via enjoyable, selfmade tasks. you will get suggestions for constructing your place workbench, effectively dealing with fabrics, and making a number of interesting devices. the entire initiatives and experiments use reasonably cheap, on hand digital elements and varieties of breadboard, which creates a plug-and-play atmosphere that you can construct digital circuits―no soldering required!

Inside you will find:

  • Things you will Need--lists of the entire digital parts and gear required for every test
  • A Circuit Diagram--shows how all of the digital parts are hooked up to provide the test
  • How the Circuit Works--identifies the construction blocks used to make the circuit and is helping you learn circuit diagrams
  • Breadboard Layout--close-up images that consultant you in construction each one digital circuit
  • Time to Experiment--explains the right way to get your scan working

Step-by-step initiatives include:

Phone experiments
