Make: More Electronic


Electronics is much more than resistors, capacitors, transistors, and diodes. There is a world of projects you can create by using comparators, op-amps, and sensors. And don t overlook the brainpower of logic chips! This sequel to the best-selling Make: Electronic offers 36 new step-by-step experiments to teach you how to add computational power to your projects.


Product Description

Make: More Electronics guides you through a thick forest of components: op-amps, comparators, counters, encoders, decoders, multiplexers, shift registers, timers, light bards, Darlington arrays, phototransistors, and half-a-dozen other types of sensors.


  • Cast electronic I Ching yarrow stalks with a decoder and binary counter
  • Create a Telepathy Tester using NAND, NOR, and XNOR logic gates
  • Breadboard a Boise Protest Device using op-amps and smoothing capacitors
  • Combine a timer, counter, and multiplexer to design a randomized Hot Slot game
  • Radicalize Tic-Tac-Toe using magnet and SPDT reed switches
  • Uses a rotational encoder or a thermistor to achieve randomicity

About the Author:

Charles Plattis a Contributing Editor and regular columnist for Make magazine, where he writes about electronics. He is the author of the highly successful introductory hands-on book, Make: Electronics, and is writing this sequel to that book in addition to volumes 2 and 3 of the Encyclopedia of Electronic Components.

Platt was a Senior Writer for Wired magazine, and has written various computer books. As a prototype designer, he created semi-automated rapid cooling devices with medical applications, and air-deployable equipment for first responders. He was the sole author of four mathematical-graphics software packages, and has been fascinated by electronics since he put together a telephone answering machine from a tape recorder and military-surplus relays at age 15. He lives in a Northern Arizona wilderness area, where he has his own workshop for prototype fabrication and projects that he writes about for Make magazine.
