Forrest Mims books (5)
Getting Started in Electronics
This is a complete electronics course in 128 pages! Author Forrest Mims teaches you the basics, takes you on a tour of analog and digital components, explaining how they work, and shows you how they are combined for various applications. The book includes circuit assembly tips and 100 electronic circuits and projects you can build and test.
Timer, Op Amp & Optoelectronic Circuits & Projects
This Engineer's Mini Notebook features more than two dozen 555 timer circuits that you can build, including three tone generators, LED flashers, sound-effects circuits, and a touch switch. It also includes more than 50 operational amplifier (Op Amp) circuits, many with simple formulas to help you modify them for special circuits of your own design. A wide range of optoelectronic circuits and projects are featured, including many LED circuits and various lightwave communication systems.
Electronic Sensor Circuits & Projects
Learn about important sensors like solar cells, photoresistors, thermistors, hall-effect devices, and magnet switches. Then use these sensors to build circuits and projects that respond to heat, pressure, light, touch, water, strain, lightning, and magnets. You can even make a circuit that detects the presence of the cursor on your computer screen and the position of a compass needle.
Electronic Formulas, Symbols & Circuits
Included are many frequently used electronic formulas, tables, circuit symbols, and device packages. Also featured are basic resistor and capacitor circuits, plus many circuits using piezoelectric buzzers, LEDs, FETs, and ICs. Also included are some 100 digital logic circuits ranging from simple gates and oscillators to sequencers, shift registers, and data selectors. Design and testing tips are provided to help you plan and troubleshoot your circuits.
Science and Communication Circuits & Projects
You can use the plans in this Volume to make a simple seismometer by hanging a magnet over a coil; build a sun photometer and make accurate measurements of haze in the atmosphere; study rain, lightning, clouds, sunlight, water, temperature, and other topics; and build a wide variety of lightwave and radio communication circuits.
