Each of the projects in this collection of data files provides a 'building block' which constructors can use to experiment with components and use as a starting point for further development. This book will thus provide a toolkit for building audio systems and circuits based on readily available components using straightforward techniques.
Maplin staff are experienced providers of project ideas with useful features and many applications. Each of the circuits in this book are based around readily available chips, and provide an excellent way to become familiar with the characteristics of the chip as well as providing construction details for useful projects. Each includes pinouts and pin designations, output waveforms, parts lists, circuit diagrams, PCB layouts and photographs of the boards. The projects described in this book are based on those appearing in the popular Data Files feature in Electronics, the Maplin Magazine.
