Electronics Design - AirBorn Electronics

They design and produce the electronic controllers inside new products. Electronic development, circuit design, PCB layout, prototyping, programming, these are the parts of Electronics Research and Development to bring a new idea or concept to life.

Play-Hookey - Online Classroom

This Website is intended for those intrepid individuals who, for whatever reason, find themselves looking for a less than formal approach to useful education in a number of technical fields.

Play-Hookey - Online Classroom

Digital logic is at the core of all digital computers, and yet it is entirely based on three fundamental operations, designated AND, OR, and NOT. See how it's possible in these pages…..
These pages now include coverage of the major logic families as well as some practical experiments that you can perform with real components to see for yourself how they work.
  • DC Electronic Theory.
  • AC Electronic Theory.
  • Op Amps and Analog Circuits.
  • Take a look at optics.
  • What's inside these semiconductors?

"In many digital circuits, we need a regular and continuous train of pulses to control the timing of various circuits. In some cases, we want two separate pulse trains, one the inverse of the other. In other cases, we may want two square wave pulse trains in quadrature...."

The Spice in Analog Design

Analog Designers created Spice, Analog Design Professionals are adding their experience in many commercial and free spice EDA tools. When you are creating a new demanding design, a working solution is achieved by combining workbench and simulation work.

The Spice in Analog Design

Lab Test Bench and Breadboard testing needs to be done along with analog simulation. Power and mixed signal design too, needs to be verified on board. This is more true for a new design lab or new engineers. Experienced designers will not make many mistakes as design blocks would be in their collections or in their knowledge base. It is this knowledge that can build the simulator itself, this makes the simulator as skilled as the designer but also limited to his or that firm's experience. In a full digital design, simulation does a more complete Virtual Test bench role.

A simulation tool can help you test the blocks and helps catch some design and concept errors. When you build a live breadboard prototype, some real issues facing your design can emerge.

Spice is a analog design aid and helps mixed design circuit simulation, See the Spice homepage.

SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general purpose analog electronic circuit simulator. It is a powerful program that is used in IC and board-level design to check the integrity of circuit designs and to predict circuit behavior. - Wikipedia
