Arduino Kits for beginners

Arduino Kits

Arduino kits are providing the ability to learn electronics easily. You can make your own projects in a few minutes. Making a circuit on a PCB is a hard job, and it requires excellent skills in soldering. Also, it consumes a lot of time. Assembling components is another problem.

But electronic portable kits solve the issue. You can gain knowledge from Arduino starter kits because the kits include project books and different varieties of sensor modules that directly connect and reconnect just in a few steps.

Electronics Books

Electronic Books of basic components

This book deals with the basic concepts of electronic components. We divide it into three major categories.
1- Power
2- Electromagnetism
3 -Discrete Semiconductor

The book starts from the battery that is an electrochemical power source. But a battery cell is also a power source for an electronic component. It describes the construction details, working principle, and usage of electronic components.

The most important components used in many Arduino based electronic projects. Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors used in almost every circuit. Such parts are explained in the book well.

Description of Transformers (AC to AC) Power Supply (AC to DC) Converters (DC to DC) Inverter (DC to AC) that are useful for the required source of supply.
Switches, Relays, these parts explained briefly in the book. These parts play a major role in any circuit.

The second category of the book is about motors, e.g. AC-DC motors, servomotors, and Stepper motor.

The third category is about the discrete semiconductor. Encoders, Diodes, and Transistors who single junction or multi-junction?
