Open up the exciting world of electronics with 3D circuit designing tools and create your own fresh new projects. With this quick guide you’ll use high-quality graphical programs to create, modify, and update circuits in an interactive, virtual environment that can also be used in the real world.
Follow along with the tutorials and get the chance to play with electronics safely before getting your hands dirty. In just a few minutes, you’ll start creating your first circuit. You’ll focus more on how the components layout together than on worrying about design to get started. Watch as different electronic components receive different signals and test them in different situations and circuit conditions first before moving on to real-life testing. When you’re ready, you’ll work with real breadboards and microcontrollers, such as the Arduino, to bring your simulated circuits and projects to life.
Once you have your circuit put together, work with basic Arduino programming to give it purpose and make it respond to your commands. By the end of the book you’ll have mastered the basics of both circuit design and programming.
What You’ll Learn
- Engineer electrical equipment for little to no cost
- Measure different electrical signals, such as voltage, temperature, light, and more
- Program Arduinos to work with your new circuits
