electronics in general....
« on: November 29, 2009, 05:36:24 AM »
hello there, i have just made an account on this forum so i'd like to say hi to everyone....

i think this might be a wee bit off topic but... lately ive gotten an eager desire to learn about robots tho i do not have much knowledge about electronics so i was wondering if anyone could share some info of any site that has electronics tutorials... as i stated, im a noob at electronics so anything that doesnt require online shopping is of much help :P

well actually, i want to learn how to hook up stuff... i dont really know how to explain it but lets say that i want to know stuff like "what does this diode do?" and similar stuff... was thinking of getting different books to read but unfortunatelly i havent had much success with finding one...

anyways, id like a guide from the beginning.... as i said "what does this do?"

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
Engineering is based on numbers - not adjectives

Their E-book is great, however at times it is hard to understand.
