All About Circuits is a comprehensive electronics industry website featuring a free six-volume online textbook about electronic circuits. Volume Six (https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/experiments/) is devoted to projects and experiments, tied closely to the material in the preceding volumes. HacDC members have begun a joint seminar project to work through these projects in HacDC’s workspace, one by one, in the order they appear in the text. Anyone interested in participating in these learn-by-doing exercises is welcome to join in.
We have now complete the first chapter, on “Basic Concepts and Test Equipment.” Future sessions are suspended until the Covid-19 emergency has passed. Once the Covid-19 emergency ends, we will move boldly on to on to “Series Batteries,” (https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/experiments/chpt-3/series-batteries/) “Parallel Batteries,” and time permitting our first “Voltage Divider.” Though not required, you will get more out of the session if you can read the “Batteries and Power Systems” sections from Volume 1 in advance.
Parts and equipment to complete at least one copy of each experiment will be provided at the space. If you would like to bring your own multimeter, batteries or other equipment you are welcome to do so.
