Electronic Projects for the Test Bench by Joseph Berardi This book introduces basic electronic concepts and how to build electronic projects. No computers, embedded controllers or software is required for any of the projects. Most projects can easily be built on a generic proto board or a solderless breadboard. The author’s PCB artwork is provided for the more ambitious who want to make their own PCB boards. This is a great book for anyone starting out learning how electronic test equipment works. There are a number of solderless breadboard experiments to get the novice started on project building. The hobbyist friendly electronic component suppliers and free schematic and PCB software tools are identified. The books projects are not just for novices, the Oscilloscope 4 project has been partitioned into subsystems so it can be built incrementally. The individual boards can be added-on gradually building up a simple oscilloscope into a sophisticated piece of test equipment. There is a separate tutorial on how an oscilloscope works and the different types of waveforms that can be observed. This book has a separate Electronic Reference section that is a combination of basic theory or uses for the components, parts catalog and vendor data sheet information. The Electronic Reference includes: resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, diodes, LEDs, LEDs Display, bipolar transistors, FET transistors, op-amps, comparators, timer, TTL logic gates used for the projects, voltage regulators, IC oscillators, FIFO and SRAM memories, analog-to-digital converters, enclosures, hardware, prototype boards, interconnect devices and more. There is a tutorial on the application of a human interface for controlling electronic projects. Each project along with the Electronic Reference has all of the documentation required to build each project. The books projects are all oriented for test equipment normally found on an electronics technicians test bench. The projects include DC power supplies, various oscillators or clock sources from low frequency up to the RF range including precision clocks to voltage variable oscillators to function generators. The different projects include generation of a square, sine, triangle and ramp waveforms. The Logic Probe project allows for checking for legal logic 0, 1 levels and illegal or undefined logic levels. A one-shot device is used to capture single pulse events that cannot normally be seen using an LED indicator. The projects are based on individual functions where many of them can be built as standalone projects while other project boards are grouped together to make up sophisticated equipment. The book culminates by integrating the Oscilloscope ADC8 board, Graphics Board LED16x32 board, Oscilloscope 4 Memory board, Oscilloscope 4 Control board into a complete oscilloscope. The OPAMP amplifier board and Precision Square Wave Generator boards can be added on to make the front-end compatible with standard passive oscilloscope probes and provide a precision sampling clock with a selectable frequency. The Oscilloscope ADC8 board is generic enough to be easily used with most embedded controllers. The Graphics Board LED16x32 board can be used in any application requiring illumination of a LED dot using the row and column addresses. No complicated software programming required. Although the Oscilloscope 4 Memory board is tailored for the Oscilloscope 4 project the design is generic enough when using all of the memory addresses to be used in just about any application requiring an SRAM memory. This book is packed with information for building electronic circuits. Get started today on your electronics building adventure.
