Electronics (Circuitry) Theme Page

Below are the CLN "Theme Pages" which support the study of electricity and electronics CLN's theme pages are collections of useful Internet educational resources within a narrow curricular topic and contain links to two types of information. Students and teachers will find curricular resources (information, content...) to help them learn about this topic. In addition, there are links to instructional materials (lesson plans) which will help teachers provide instruction in this theme.

Electricity (Concepts) Theme Page

General Electronics (Circuitry) Resources

Here are a number of links to other Internet resources which contain information and/or other links related to Electronics. Please read our disclaimer.

Basic Electronics
Electronics author John Adams aims this site at those who seek basic electronics
knowledge with minimal theory.

Bowden's Hobby Circuits
More than 60 electronic circuit designs for hobbyist or student. Most circuits can be built with common components purchased locally. Also, the site has links to other hobby electronic sites and electronic related software.

Electronics: An Online Guide For Beginners
Basic concepts of electronic theory are introduced. The site introduces breadboard, soldering, discusses series and parallel circuits, and provides schematic diagrams for various electronic projects.

How to Become An Antenna Guru
A page describing what an antenna is in terms of its transmission line, impedance, radiation pattern, polarization and arrays. The author includes many illustrations along with descriptions.

Iguana Labs
A collection of tutorials for the beginner, intermediate and advanced learner. Information includes basic concepts and components, determining resistor values by reading its colour codes, using breadboards, Ohm's Law, LEDs, transistors and multimeters.

Interfacing the PC
A tutorial that teaches you how to connect anything electronic to your PC using common interfaces such as the Serial and Parallel Ports.

Internet Guide to Electronics
The author of this site states it is designed for beginners. Some of the content includes basic topics like: Circuits, Voltage, Current, Resistance, Ohm's Law, Ohm's Calculations and much more.

The Transistor
Lucent Technologies, which used to be AT&T Bell Labs, hosts this site about the development of the transistor and how it works.

Tomi Engdahl's Electronics Info Page
A meta-list of electronic related sites. The author has an organized, comprehensive list of links to electronic and PC hardware, many supporting documents and a few dozen circuit schematics.
