Mehr über den Autor

Charles Platt hat Software für sein eigenes Mail-Bestellgeschäft entwickelt und unterrichtete Adobe Illustrator und Photoshop. In den 80er Jahren schrieb er fünf Computerbücher und entwarf zahlreiche Elektronik-Projekte. Nach einer langjährigen Tätigkeit beim Wired-Magazine begann er, für das O'Reilly Make Magazine Projekte zu entwickeln. Wenn er nicht gerade Bücher oder Artikel schreibt, entwirft und baut er Prototypen in der nördlichen Arizona-Gegend.


Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Charles Platt became interested in computers when he acquired an Ohio Scientific C4P in 1979. After writing and selling software by mail order, he taught classes in BASIC programming, MS-DOS, and subsequently Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. He wrote five computer books during the 1980s. He has also written science fiction novels such as The Silicon Man (published originally by Wired books) and Protektor (from Avon Books). He stopped writing science fiction when he started contributing to Wired magazine in 1993, and became one of its three senior writers a couple of years later. Charles began contributing to Make magazine in its third issue and is currently a contributing editor. Make: Electronics is his first book for Make Books. Currently he is designing and building prototypes of medical equipment in his workshop in a northern Arizona wilderness area.

This is the kind of book I wish I had had already many years ago. The right level of explanation and pointers on what to watch out for.

Unfortunately, the table of content is messed up in the Kindle edition and it is very hard to find your way around. Given the reference it is supposed to be, this is a big minus.

Even with Internet, this book is useful 2. Dezember 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As the author states in the Preface, this is not the kind of book you will read from page one till the end. It's not sequential in that way. But a complete reading would certainly greatly improve your knowledge of these electronic components.

Author Charles Platt is a Contributing Editor and regular columnist for O'Reilly Media's Make: Magazine, where he writes about electronics. If you are looking for more of a tutorial, consider Platt's introductory hands-on book, Make: Electronics.

In this era of immediate access to information from search engines, why do you need a physical book on electronic components? As Platt suggests, the information available online is often inconsistent in quality. Volume 1 (this book - Vol. 2 and 3 are in the works) is thorough and consistently high-quality.

The book is broken down into sections for Power (such as battery), Connection (fuse, switch, relay), Moderation (resistor, capacitor, inductor), Conversion (transformer, inverter) Regulation (Voltage regulator) Electromagnetism (solenoid), Rotational (motors) and Discrete Semiconductor (diodes, FETs).

Each section has a standard group of information presented. Each starts with other common names and related components. Then there is a What it Does section with photos or drawings and then a How it Works section. The Variants sections may include, for example, the different formats for capacitors. Sticking with the capacitors example, there is then a section on Principal Types of capacitors, Dielectrics, Values associated with the component (farads for capacitors) and a lot more details and variants as the component may have.

Each section has a useful What Can Go Wrong section that lists the common problems that may affect a component (wrong polarity, heat, vibration, etc.) and what to do about it. At the end of the 278 page book are a few pages of Schematic Symbols.

It's a complete and detailed reference and the information is presented logically and in an appealing way. Either the Index or Table of Contents (or a quick flip through and browse of the headers at the top of each page) gets you to the desired information fast.

I think it's a terrific resource and am eager to see the next volumes.

Great Resources for the DIYer 14. November 2012
Von David J. Kelley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In general the DIY books from O'reilly/Make are a great series. I appreciate the color in this book and the component explanation. its much easier to start here with this book before diving into parts catalogs and the like even in an RnD shop like mine this book is really helpful and a great addition to my self. I highly recommend this book for the hobbyist and for anyone that does a lot with the typical components used in the DIY world. looking forward to more 'volumes' of this book

A valuable addition to the bookshelf: worth the time and the money 20. Dezember 2012
Von Urb Anwriter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Platt's 'Enc. of Electronic Components' is a good read, lots of information on the components covered, and strikes a fine balance between underwhelming the knowledgeable and overwhelming those who 'just don't know.'

I wanted to know more about capacitors. Now I have read why I might choose polyethylene over mylar, or tantalum caps over electrolytics. I wanted to know more about coils, inductors, and now there is a little more knowledge to fill the wells of memory there as well.

Lots of good information on resistors, capacitors (including the actual schematics for RC high and low pass filters), a little later there are LCR filters, diodes, a variety of diodes and transistor types. There is a very good section on a variety of motors - better here than I expected, so I learned more where I hadn't thought I would.

Platt introduces the volume by suggesting the book will gather enough information to be usable, in one place, effectively 'peer reviewed' for accuracy and legitimacy, and the book certainly lives up to that aim.

In all chapters on components there is a 'what could go wrong' section; that is what I'm going to add here. My two big complaints have to do with typeface/font selection and the layout of illustrations. The font used for formulae I find hard to read quickly and accurately. Most troublesome is the 'pi' symbol which quite often I mistake for an 'n' which I catch because I know the equation - but I can see being caught out. That I would like to see changed. The other complaint is the number of times throughout the book where the text refers to an illustration -- which is on the next page. It sounds like a minor complaint but can be irritating.

Those two quibbles aside I'm glad I bought the book. If my bookshelf had a fire, earthquake, tsunami, or house-cleaner come through I would buy another copy quickly.

And, once through the first couple chapters, I want to know when the next (two!) volumes are coming out?

Worth your time and money.

Very informative - presented well 3. Januar 2013
Von Jerry Beach - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Purchased to further knowledge of electronic components. Author covers several components in Volume 1 with many helpful photos, descriptions of how they work and variations of the components. Author says this book is not a training course in electronics but you will gain a lot of knowledge about electronics as many example schemetics are presented in conjunction with the component being discussed. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in electronics.

Concise, graphical, and accessible 21. Dezember 2012
Von whatever - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a strong book that is well worth the price. It provides three main benefits over other resources:
1) It is concise and well laid out. Chapters are typically 8 picture-filled pages long, so it's actually faster to find information in this paper book than searching online!
2) I love the diagrams and pictures. They are common (around 2 per page) and communicate ideas better than the more prose-centric wikipedia articles.
3) It is more accessible (less technical) than other resources that cover similar material. As a relatively technical reader, this was actually a minor disappointment, but I see the value in it. The "What can go wrong" sections are especially valuable in conveying the wisdom of experience.
