Teach-In 2011

Teach-In 2011

The Teach-In 2011 series is perfect for newcomers to explore the basic theory of electronics as well as those 'brushing up' on their understanding of electronic theory. It not only covers the essential underpinning knowledge of electronics but utilises computer simulation and design tools to help see it in action. It also describes the process of realising circuit designs in to PCB designs that can be manufactured for real.

This series appeared in EPE Magazine from November 2010 to September 2011 in 11 Parts.

Jump Start

Our new series of seasonal ‘design and build’ projects for newcomers. Jump Start is designed to provide a practical introduction to the design and realisation of a variety of simple but useful electronic circuits. The series has a seasonal flavour and is based on simple projects that will appeal to newcomers to electronics as well as those following formal courses taught in schools and colleges.

This is a current series that commenced in May 2012
