Introduction to Electronics Ba1

Introduction to Electronics Sonology Ba1 – 2021/2022 Introduction to Electronics for Sonology Ba1 students consist of 6 practical instruction lessons. In these lessons we will talk about the most fundamental electronic subjects like ohms law, voltage, current, ac, dc, frequency, phase, digital, analog and much much more. Also subjects the students themselves find interesting can

Capacitor

A capacitor is a passive component that consists of two metal (conducting) plates that are separated by a material called a dielectric. This dielectric is an electrical insulator that can be polarized by an applied electric field. The positive and negative particles inside the dielectric are not polarized if there’s no voltage applied. The capacity

Building electronics

Building Electronics ‘tips’ When you want to make your own electronic device for the first time ever, you will encounter some challenges. How do you start? How can you make electronics stable and reliable. On this page some fundamental tips to help you create your own device. Tip:Try to build the board or circuit ‘modular’.

Oscillator principle

Oscillators with CMOS HEF 40106 An oscillator is an electronic circuit, that produces a repetitive electronic signal.During this last lesson we will experiment with some some simple oscillators. Take a look at the animation on the right. This shows the resonance of a spring/mass combination, in an ‘undamped’ setup; so no losses due to friction.

Opamps

While making all the projects, I’ve been using a lot of different Opamp circuits and actually the basic concept of the circuits used, is often the “same”.  In this article I will point out the most important Opamp circuits used in combination with active sensors. These active sensors, like for example the acceleration sensor, produce

Fundamentals

What is Electronics? Electronics is an absolute fascinating world with the possibility to create any circuit and any functionality that you would like. But bear in mind: electronics can be very complex and frustrating as well. Circuits that do not work. Components that smell funny or circuits which are unstable. How do you cope with

Power Supplies

Power supplies Working with electronic-circuits means you are always in need of ‘power’. A lot of circuits work with battery operated power. This is not really dangerous and if the battery ‘dies’ on you, you just buy a new one. But for a lot of reasons (environmental, money, more power) it’s a better choice to

Ohms law

Ohms law Some basics of electronicsTo be able to understand a bit more about electronics and the circuits that are shown on this or other websites, it is actually inevitable to understand Ohm’s law – it makes live a bit easier. You have to understand what happens with the current, the voltage and the resistance.
