Here's a project I've been working on for the last several years: I wrote a book on designing electronics. It's everything I wished I knew when I started as an EE. You can download a copy for free at designingelectronics.com. Let me know what you think, or if you've got any suggestions for it!

Here's some of the stuff it covers:

  • What to build and how to plan for it
  • Selecting components
  • Prototyping
  • Schematic design
  • Layout design
  • Cost engineering
  • Fabrication and assembly
  • Testing
  • Building a lab
  • Troubleshooting
  • Rules of thumb
  • How to give a demo
  • Companies that can help
