We have a bunch of new tutorials - of the easy to digest variety - for Free Day knowledge and your general education.
When we originally wrote our Beginning Embedded Electronics tutorials, our hope was that they would help people to get started in electronics. We realized, however, that it might be helpful to take another step back and talk about some of the real foundations of embedded electronics.
So check it out - the Bite-Sized Primer section of our tutorials. We believe these tutorials will really help clarify some of the tough terms you might hear in electronics. Additionally, as we mentioned in our original Free Day post, there is a quiz aspect to this Free Day. Let's just say...studying these tutorials might be beneficial if you want to do well on the Free Day quiz. Ok, not "might be beneficial" - the quiz questions will come from these tutorials, so read them!
Right now, we have added
17 18 new small tutorials (with more on the way) that talk about things like doing number system conversions, using pull-up resistors, performing simple soldering, and a whole bunch of other useful information.
What are TX and RX Signals?
We think these tutorials are a great way to learn about some of the cornerstones of working with electronics and are great for beginners and veterans alike. And don't forget - Free Day is just around the corner...time to get studying!
