How Did You Get Started in Electronics?

Around Christmas time I think about my adventured with electricity and electronics, which started many years ago. My grandfather gave me a small wooden box with a momentary switch and a large red jewel pilot lamp, similar to the one shown nearby, but larger. I could click the switch and the light turned on. Then I had electric trains--a nice set of Lionel trains purchased second hand for Christmas when I was 6 or 7. I spent a lot of time rewiring the layout, adding signals, and changing the arrangement of track switches, or turnouts. I had fun. My grandfather also gave me 6-volt lightbulbs in small ceramic sockets, knife switches, buzzers, a bell, lots of wire, and large dry cells so I could "wire up" my own circuits. See More ...

Chips Provide All-in-One Stepper-Motor Control

 Quite some time ago I got interested in stepper motors and used a basic stepper to advance punched cards through a crude reader mechanism with electrical contacts that completed a circuit when a hole passed by. Since then I have thought about stepper motors often as ways to solve tricky motion-control problems. Since I started to dabble with steppers, companies have introduced discrete controller chips as well as stepper-motor control software for microcontrollers. Creating designs with stepper motors gets easier and easier. See More ...
