    2.0 von 5 Sternen Misleading title 10. März 2014
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    I expected information on how to hack electronical devices. How to test and analyze circuits, how to monitor communication between chips and so on. Knowledge that enables me to extend or manipulate electronics for my own purpose.
    What I got was just another how to do x y with arduino uno book. From running a led with a battery to reading various kinds of sensors with an arduino (one would have been enough) this book covers basic experiments for beginners.

    The book contains a few chapters that are interesting and that should have been extended to fill the entire book. How to load batteries, how to salvage electronic parts... But this unfortunately only makes like 10% of the book.

    I don't want to read how a capacitor behaves and when I want to have an arduino book I buy one...

    I would have given 3 stars but one of the first experiments involves mains voltage without saying that this is dangerous. Same goes for the use of lasers. Info on high voltage comes like in the last chapter. Unlucky hobbyists are dead befor getting there.

    Habe auf empfehlung in c't-mag.gekauft, weil es für neulinge wohl ein guter einstieg sein soll.
    ist gut zur ergänzung aber nicht für neulings-einstieg.
    abseits davon hier und da ganz interessant.

    Ein tolles Buch für Elektronik-Freaks und solche, die es werden wollen. Das Buchkonzept ist einfach schlüssig, alles ist gut erklärt, lässt aber genug Raum für eigene Ideen.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen I love this book! 2. April 2013
    Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
    I think I've been looking for this electronics book for a long time! I'm a ham radio operator, and an electronics hobbyist with no formal training in the subject, so I seem to always learn everything the hard way. Well, Simon Monk has put together a book that should become a real must have item for people like me. You could be a rank beginner, or an old hand, and still find a world of things in this book that you need to know, or projects you want to try.

    If you've always wanted to get into electronics as a hobby, this book will help you get started with the very basics. If, on the other hand, you've been tinkering with Arduino for a long time, and are interested in some new, fresh projects, then this is for you, too. Another thing I like is that, in this book, Simon Monk has helped me get outside the box with electronic projects. Let me explain: Even though I've played around with microcontrollers for a few years, I've bought several books that I hoped would help me learn to think outside the box, and yet when I finished those books, I realized that I had only built a project or two, and that I had not really learned how to progress beyond the confines of those projects. This book is different! It has some very practical advice all through it that has already helped me make that leap toward improvising some ideas of my own. Part of its aim is to help you learn to think on your own about what you'd like to do with electronics.

    For its size, this book is packed with straightforward, useful information. Mr. Monk hasn't beaten us to death with the boring details of electronic theory. Instead, he has given us the meat that we need to get started, and to develop steadily as hobbyists.

    Sure, if you need great depth in electronics theory, or the superfine details of the inner workings of an Arduino board, this won't be for you. But if you're ready to learn the basics of electronics hacking, or you're ready to move out of the standard project books, then this is for you.

    When I was a kid, I used to absolutely love it when my Mother would bring home a book full of projects for boys. Most of them were loaded with different projects for different skill levels, and I always found dozens of things to do, to keep me busy for a long while. I didn't do every project, but I found plenty that caught my interest. They taught me the basic skills, showed me the tools to use, and then turned me loose on the projects. Well, I feel like this book is that same sort of thing for electronics. I wish this book and the Arduino had been around when I was a kid. I would never have put it down. This is just a really neat book, and you need a copy if you love to tinker.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Hacking Electronics 29. August 2013
    Von Blair Bowler - Veröffentlicht auf
    Hacking Electronics is a newly released, modern, and inexpensive `how to' electronics workbook. The rather abrasive word "hacking" might suggest many things to different people, however, in this 275 page paperback it means, practical teaching by doing. Each topic features easy-to-follow projects. You don't need a degree in engineering to create or modify something electronic. Traditional electronic textbooks can be terrifying, unless one has a good grounding in complex mathematics. This easy to read intuitive guide teaches about micro-controllers, sensors, FM Transmitters, working with modules, and other simple to construct devices. Hacking Electronics is a full-colour exceptional publication, organised into 11 chapters, a Parts Appendix, and a very informative index. Perhaps the following brief description of each chapter, will provide a useful summary of the book's content.

    Chapter 1, Getting Started. This instructional book starts with advice on where to buy equipment and components. This first chapter also deals with the basics of soldering and describes how to use an old computer fan to make a fume extractor for use while soldering.

    Chapter 2, Theory and Practice. This particular chapter identifies and explains the variety and use of electronic components. It also introduces a small amount of helpful and essential theory.

    Chapter 3, Basic Hacks. This chapter introduces transistors with example projects. It includes a "push light" which automatically turns on at night, and `how to' control a motor, using power MOSFETs.

    Chapter 4, LEDs. Besides discussing regular LEDs, `how to' use them, and making them flash, etc. This chapter also looks at using constant current drivers for LEDs and laser diode modules.

    Chapter 5, Batteries and Power. The focal point in this chapter turns to batteries, both single use and rechargeable. It shows `how to' charge Lead-Acid, NiMH, and Lithium Polymer batteries. Automatic battery back-up, voltage regulation, and solar-panel charging circuits are also included here.

    Chapter 6, Hacking Arduino. The Arduino has become the popular low-cost micro-controller board of choice for global electronic enthusiasts. Micro-controllers are essentially low-powered computers, on a chip. The open-source hardware design makes using such a complex device very simple. The chapter begins with the Arduino, and includes a few simple how to's, like controlling a relay, playing sounds, and controlling servo motors. Readers are also introduced to the large range of available plug-in shields, all of which, have added greatly to the success of the Arduino Board.

    Chapter 7, Hacking With Modules. Modules exist for all types of things, from wireless remotes to motor drivers. When constructing something, there is often a ready-made module available to use, for at least some part of the project.

    Chapter 8, Hacking With Sensors. Sensor ICs and modules are available for sensing everything from gas to acceleration. This chapter explores and explains how to use a range of sensors, which includes connecting some of them to the Arduino micro-controller board.

    Chapter 9, Audio Hacks. This chapter has a number of excellent `how to' designs, all relating to electronics and sound. It includes making and adapting audio leads, audio amplifiers, and the use of microphones.

    Chapter 10, Mending and Breaking Electronics. Mending and scavenging useful parts from dead electronic equipment can be a worthy activity. This chapter explains `how to' take things apart, and sometimes put them back together again.

    Chapter 11, Tools. The final chapter is a basic reference and explanation about `how to' use and get the most out of tools, such as multimeters and Lab power supplies. Hacking Electronics is indeed a superb `how to' electronics book, highly recommended for all makers and hobbyists, who will no doubt, enjoy the full-colour illustrations, and the do-it-yourself guides. There is a great feeling of personal satisfaction in building something physical, or modifying a device of your own choosing. Be warned, however, once you start reading this brightly presented new release electronics manual, you might find it difficult to put down. Reviewed by: Blair Bowler - VK4BBX (August 2013).

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent 2nd level book for electronics 20. April 2013
    Von Heading West - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I've done electronics for 12 months, read all the "for dummies" and "make" books. Read a couple of Arduino books etc. Then you get to the stage you want more practical solutions to everyday problems. The little tips that the professionals use to quickly solve problems.

    This book is very easy to read cover to cover, Simon Monk uses the simplest language with a lovely style.

    Today I needed a battery and charger for my robot - so I immediately opened this book, went to the succinct and detailed chapter on batteries, and 10 minutes later I'm all done.

    Please Simon - release V2 - covering more topics on top of these ones.

    Strongly recommended.
