 Follow hands-on projects so you can work with electronic circuits Are you ready to keep up with the rapidly evolving world of electronic products? From smartphones and tablets to MP3 players and digital cameras, this resource will build your understanding of how the latest electronic circuits work. You'll dive into hands-on projects and walk through the calculations and concepts for key circuits to get you up to speed. As you progress through the chapters, you'll learn how to build the circuits, and then observe or measure how they work so you can apply the information on your own. Learn how to control the flow of electric current Design a transistor circuit, and compare the switching action of a JFET and a BJT Explore the use of resistors, capacitors, and inductors in bandpass and band-reject filters Use BJTs, JFETs, and operational amplifiers in amplifier circuits Find out how an oscillator works, and then design and build one Discover how a transformer converts AC voltage to a higher or lower voltage Calculate the values of components that produce a specified DC output voltage for a power supply circuit The book's website (www.buildinggadgets.com) provides project pages that include links to suppliers and are kept up to date with supplier part numbers for components you'll need.

Typo on p27

By Veysel Cetiner

from USA

Couldn't find the place to submit errata so I'll put it here. The answer to the question on page 27 should be I2 = (IT)(R1)/(R1+R2). This is corroborated by the explanation which states that the current through one branch of a two-branch circuit (I2 in this case) is equal to the total current (IT) times the resistance of the opposite branch (R1 not R2), divided by the sum of the resistances. Parentheticals mine.
