Book Preface

This is a book about “hacking” electronics. It is not a formal, theory-based book about electronics. Its sole aim is to equip the reader with the skills he or she needs to use electronics to make something, whether it’s starting from scratch, connecting together modules, or adapting existing electronic devices for some new use.

You will learn how to experiment and get your ideas into some kind of order, so that what you make will work. Along the way, you’ll gain an appreciation for why things work and the limits of what they can do, and learn how to make prototypes on solderless breadboard, how to solder components directly to each other, and how to use stripboard.

You will also learn how to use the popular Arduino microcontroller board, which has become one of the most important tools available to the electronics hacker. There are over 20 examples of how to use an Arduino with electronics in this book. Electronics has changed. This is a modern book that avoids theory you will likely never use and instead concentrates on how you can build things using readymade modules when they are available. There is, after all, no point in reinventing the wheel. Some of the things explained and described in the book include
●● Using LEDs, including high-power Lumileds
●● Using LiPo battery packs and buck-boost power supply modules
●● Using sensors to measure light, temperature, vibration, acceleration, sound level, and color
●● Interfacing with Arduino microcontroller boards, including using Arduino shields such as the Ethernet and LCD display shields
●● Using servo and stepper motors

Some of the things described in the book that you can make along the way include
●● A noxious gas detector
●● An Internet-controlled hacked electric toy
●● A device for measuring color
●● An ultrasonic rangefinder
●● A remote control robotic rover
●● An accelerometer-based version of the “egg and spoon” race
●● A one-watt audio amplifier
●● A bug made from a hacked MP3 FM transmitter
●● Working brakes and head lights that can be added to a slot car
