The field of teaching digital electronics has not changed significantly in the past 20 years. Many of the same books that first became available in the late 1970s and early 1980s are still being used as basic texts. In the 20+ years since these were written, the basic rules have not changed, but they do not provide strong links to modern electronics including CMOS logic, Programmable Logic Devices and microprocessor/microcontroller interfacing. Courses teaching introductory digital electronics will fill in the missing areas of information for students, but neither the instructors nor students have resources to explain modern technology and interfaces. One assumption made by all the standard texts is that experimenting with digital electronics cannot be done easily - in the proposed book, a€œdigital gurua€ Myke Predko will show how readers can set up their own apparatus for experimenting with digital electronics for less than $10.While these two requirements seem impossible, they can actually be achieved very easily through the use of the a€œswitch mode power supplya€ (SMPS). The basic SMPS circuit (Fig. 12-18) is quite simple and relies on the energy storinganbsp;...
