Electronics is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and also an increasingly popular and useful hobby. Electrical and Electronic theory, design and practical skills can be applied in many different career paths, including computing, engineering, construction, entertainment and manufacturing.
Martin Denny is a degree-educated former Electronics Engineer, with over thirty years' experience in Electronic Design working in the UK Power Industry. He has also written Electronics revision guides aimed at GCSE/high school level. Our electronics guide has been written to help complete novices learn the skills of Electronics, and to make learning those skills as easy and as fun as possible, whether you are a simple hobbyist or an aspiring Electronics Engineer.
Even for those who are familiar with electronics, the design sections and example circuits are a very valuable resource. The complete design process, from planning through to developing and documenting your designs, is explained in detail.
In addition, each example includes not only a circuit diagram and a list of components as in many other guides, but also a detailed explanation of what each part of the circuit does, why certain components have been chosen and the overall design concept of the device.
Our electronics guide is divided into twelve chapters, covering everything from preparation and safe workshop practice to logic and design techniques. Everything you need to know is illustrated and fully explained to maximise your learning and enjoyment, with practical examples to test your new knowledge.
