by Alden Hackmann

Electronics Concepts, Labs, and Projects introduces concepts, techniques, and tools needed for productive growth in the fields of audio, video, and multimedia recording. It includes essential theory relating to electronics principles specific to the audio world, as well as practical lessons on soldering, how to use a digital multimeter for testing audio gear and cables, and how to use an oscilloscope and function generator to diagnose circuits. Also included are descriptions of the components found in electronic circuits and how they work.

Seasoned instructor Alden Hackmann uses a bare minimum of math to demonstrate practical concepts, plus every chapter includes a hands-on lab to reinforce that chapter's concepts. There are also seven projects to help the reader develop fundamental soldering skills, including the introduction of techniques for use with a broad variety of cables. The electronics topics includes voltage, current, resistance, and power, and how they are related to one another. Resistors, capacitors, diodes, batteries, switches, LEDs, transformers, diodes, transistors, inductors, and tubes are all explained in a clear and concise manner. With 12 distinct sections, this book can be used in both the class environment and for self-study.

The accompanying DVD-ROM contains lecturers and illustrations that support and reinforce the concepts presented in the text.
