I am going to show how to Learn electronics for beginners. Imagine that you are interested in learning new things that are not familiar. Everything seems confusing.
I used to be like that. Therefore don’t want you like me. We should start from a simple, little. Until developing without knowing it.
Let me explain to you. Step by step learning.
What? Why? Who? learn electronics
I have a three of questions that can help you see more clearly.
1# What is Electronics?
Electronics are something near us. For example, cell phones, computers, televisions, etc.
Everything needs electricity as energy by plugging in a house or charging with the AC adapter.
Inside these appliances consist of devices called those electronic components.
They are connected in a manner known as the electronic circuit.
Which using these appliances, we do not need to learn the workings of the electronic circuit inside it.
2# Why learn Electronics?
There are a lot of reasons to should study electronics. But the 4 main benefits are
Can Build electronic circuits
If you have a passion for electronics works. We should learn electronics by using electronic circuits to create fun projects. To solve everyday problems, is good, make your free time is useful.
Save time & money
Also, if you have technical skills. You can save money. Because when the appliance is broken. You can repair it first.
Great future awaits
Learning electronic circuits is a very good skill or ability.
Imagine you build electronic circuits. Understand its working principle, until becoming an expert. When there is a job opportunity like this. Will you be selected?
Great for studying
Moreover, it is great for studying too. Because electronics are a science for obvious reasons. We can understand it.
But learning the principle of its operation alone is a tedious thing. Therefore, it is better to learn through building electronic circuits.
3# Who should learn electronics?
Change the old thinking Electronics is not as difficult as you think, you are good for learning it.
- A student or who Interested in electronics as a hobby.
- Parents who want to find good activities for children.
- Even a homeschooling parent wants to teach their children to learn electronics as well as me.
It is very difficult to make electronics easy for children. So, parents should learn together with children.
It is not too late for you.
Some of my friends are about sixty years old. Play with grandchildren with electronics. It’s a fun activity.
Electronics are activities that create, touch, really experiment with devices, we move the body Create a large project. (Sometimes).
Sometimes we do simple math calculations to solve problems. So, our brain has developed nonstop. Or even that project failed We also learned. And it may also benefit other people.
How to learn Electronics in simple ways
Now you probably have the dream. Like, I want to build a circuit, to modify the circuit. And apply various circuits.
But it has a lot of equipment and details. It’s very confusing.
My mom used to teach that we always have many ways to reach the goal.
Every learning has an important condition: Time and steady
Or… If the target is far away Walk slowly and steadily
Like planting trees. It takes time and little watering. Also, learning Electronics as water the plants.
We cannot accept a lot of information at a time, so take some time to learn and find out what kind of tree we are.
What is the best way to learn?
You see a lot of content. So how do you start? Which method is best?
Imagine you are sitting in the classroom studying scientific theory. Many people may be bored. And can’t remember all those content.
Let’s learn through problems
I believe that problems are the highest cause of learning in everything around us.
In the past, we were in the dark. So, we create a light bulb. The building process is great learning. And, An important tool is a time and regular in the experiment.
And you? Let the problem go through or fix it.
In my opinion, we don’t need to know the theory of all electronic devices.
Of course, we should always think and develop it so that we can solve the problem in the best way possible.
Before build circuit should know
Relationship of voltage, current, power, resistance, and Ohms Law
To Learn the Relationship of voltage-current power and resistance with water flowing so easy. Look at Ohms Law, basic electricity you should know.
Quick Common Electronics Components
Because we need to use them to build electronics circuits. If without learning the name and how they work.
Don’t expect to create Electronic circuit finished!
All Basic Electronics circuits Symbols
They are pictogram that shows instead of electronic devices for circuit design and more.
Let’s get started more.
Learn Most components in detail
There are many electronic devices. But what equipment should we learn? Frequently used And important. I compiled the content in 5 parts, below as follows.
Let me tell you about the resistor color code and how it works.
We often look at a lot of resistors in many electronic circuits.
Do you know how to use it…
We always use capacitors in electronic circuits. But Do you understand them enough? Review now! You may improve its operation.
Learn basic uses of capacitors, Capacitance, capacitive reactance Xc. Connecting them in parallel and series. We can use RC time constant and coupling circuits.
The First time for learning how to use LEDs.
It is a good teacher to learning a current limiting.
We often use a Zener diode in a lot of the electronic circuits. But…Do you understand well enough?
Learn transistor works, old parts But, we often use it. Because of durable, high current. Whether any reason. Let’s learn they work in a simple way.
Have ever you see SCR? Some may use it instead of switches and relays.
Because we have seen it works high speed and quiet.
Learn how does NE555 timer work. Datasheet, Pinout, Circuit diagram inside. See basic stable multivibrator (Free-running) or square wave oscillator circuit.
Learn Many Electronics circuits
Most people want to build big projects. For example, high watts amplifier, Microcontrollers, and etc.
Do you know these projects include many small and small circuits joins together?
So, We should learn electronics with small or basic or even tiny circuits. I love to learn them. I like to design or try circuits by myself.
Because I believe, if we understand them. We may design electronic projects by ourselves. Do you have a dream like me?
Electronics has a lot of circuits. We cannot learn all about it in short.
It will be better. if we learn little by little Regularly.
I will gradually introduce various circuit techniques to present to you. Thank you for following. There are 4 articles for you:
How to reduce voltage for LED and other loads.
We use a limiting current resistor to reduce current or voltage in a series circuit.
So easy to do.
2# How simple series circuit works
Let’s understand the current flow and voltage across devices and calculate it with an easy formula.
Why do we use often them in circuits? Let me explain to you understand them to work, rule, calculate easily.
Almost all circuits are based on this principle.
Of course, ask your mind. Should you read it?
Even though I don’t like complexity. But every project needs good stability.
So, this is necessary. We should use it and understand it!
Let’s learn about the transistor series voltage regulator with short circuit and overload protection. And how it reduces ripple.
7# How 741 Op-Amp Power supply Circuit works
Look! How an error voltage sensor works. Using transistors circuit.
See example circuits of Variable voltage regulator using 741 and 2N3055.
Do you think that a switching supply is hard? especially beginner or an electronics hobbyist. Yes!
But wait, try to read this. It may change your mind.
We can try to play or real use. We do not need to use expensive parts or too complex. You already have the pieces of equipment exactly.
9# What is switching power supply vs linear, how does it work?
Why people pick switching regulator? the high-efficiency in small. So, should learn it works and more? Easier than you think.
Understand Digital working
Now is the digital age, which is the cornerstone of the microprocessor system. Beginning education with a simple way of thinking that must be able to actually used and good value too.
- Know the characteristics of CMOS IC and how to use
- How Astable Multivibrator using Logic Gates work | Example Circuits
Key electronic techniques
Electronics is a mechanic. Although you understand the principles of electronic work very well. But also need to practice technician techniques. In this section it makes your work to be completed smoothly. Of course, it takes practice, repeated many times, to become skilled.
1# How to solder on circuit board and Wires
Why project does not work? Sometimes the solder joint is bad. You need to know tips on how to solder a circuit board. Easy but have to practice!
If you are looking for some electronic components for your projects.
I would like to recommend you some electronic supplies store.
3# How to charge Lead-acid Battery
We probably used to use lead-acid batteries. But do you understand how to basic charge it yet?
