This where I'm going to take some time and touch on electronics. I'm preparing to put out several kits that I originally started working on for a vendor, but since he wouldn't come off the money for the development and since we are no longer working together, I'm going to do these circuits for myself and sell them on the market for a very fair price!
Below are a few photos to show a few things I'm going to touch on and there's a link to a development movie showing some of what I've built in discrete circuits. There's a long stretch that shows an assembled DLM circuit which uses the same components that I'll be using and have used in the past. As a matter of fact, I suggested a list of parts to DLM when he was looking for a replacement of the 3909 chip I think it was. Finally, in the movie you will see an old "Spark Chaser" circuit that the vendor wanted me to replace. That was a circuit that I repaired, that had bad solder joints and loose connections.
Essentially, I'm going to be covering the Basics, LED flashers, CCFL's, Fader Circuits, UVCFL's, Surface Mount LED's, Discrete Circuits and may at some point get into PIC Controllers, though there are a wide variety of those types of programmable circuits. I'll get into timing and digital circuits as well. I will most likely do a primer on soldering and breadboarding circuits as well.
Let's take a little time to identify the different parts in an electronics circuit.
