ELECTRONIC PROJECT DESIGN AND FABRICATION is more than just a project book. The fundamentals of prototype design, fabrication, and documentation are a part of each chapter. The student designs the circuit, breadboards it, designs and fabricates a printed circuit board, and encloses the project in a case.
I. PROJECT DESIGN AND FABRICATION.
II. PROJECT DESIGN AND FABRICATION USING SURFACE MOUNT TECHNOLOGY.
III. STUDENT CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS.
Electronic Project Design and Fabrication, Fifth Edition, offers a complete experience in the design and fabrication of electronic prototype projects. Whether you are enrolled in a traditional lecture and laboratory class or a fabrication course devoted entirely to the subject, this book provides the hands-on experience in project building and documentation every prospective electronics technician requires.
A project, however, is not all you will be developing as you progress through the text. You will also be building confidence in your ability to construct electronic devices. The know-how to take a project from an initial concept through to final construction with support documentation is sure to give you pride and self-assurance as you enter the electronics industry. Electronic Project Design and Fabrication will prepare you for that exciting moment.
Think of yourself as a technician on the job. Your supervisor presents you with a project idea designed to fill a need or to solve a problem. You must determine if the idea is feasible and, if so, build a working prototype project and develop an accompanying Project Report.
The project should resemble the final, mass-produced product. You must design the circuit, breadboard it, design and fabricate a printed circuit board, and then enclose the project in a functional and attractive case. The Project Report is to include appropriate written and graphic documentation. It delineates various troubleshooting and test procedures, summarizes project developments, and contains the 10-drawing set used to construct the prototype project.
In project construction, you have a choice ofthree approaches. In the first approach, you choose to build the Sample Project—the Variable Power Supply. This project progresses from chapter to chapter, starting with the two-step design process and ending with a completely packaged and tested prototype project, along with necessary documentation.
The Exercise Project, the 3-Channel Color Organ, is at a slightly higher level of difficulty. Because less help is provided in building this project, you'll have to do a bit of digging and developing on your own. The Exercise Project also is carried from chapter to chapter.
Finally, 30 Elective Projects are presented in Part III. Only Concepts and Requirements Documents and circuit design sketches are provided. Here you will need to develop specific project design and fabrication details on your own.
Although the project construction and documentation motivate you to progress from one chapter to the next, Electronic Project Design and Fabrication is more than a project book. The fundamentals of prototype project design, fabrication, and documentation are a part of every chapter. Even if you elect not to construct a project (a most unlikely occurrence), you will gain a firmer understanding of electronic device fabrication after studying the book.
The fifth edition of Electronic Project Design and Fabrication represents an up-to-date revision of a well-received text. New material has been added, including the following:
I hope you will find the fifth edition of Electronic Project Design and Fabrication a great tool as you design and create new electronic products.
Many people at Prentice Hall have provided me with invaluable assistance in the preparation of this new edition. In particular, I want to thank Charles Stewart, Assistant Vice President and Publisher, who has given me technical assistance, patient encouragement, and most importantly, enthusiastic encouragement.
I would like to thank the following reviewers for their valuable feedback: Mark Highum, Bay de Noc Community College, MI; Jon Speer, Northwest State Community College, OH; and David Ward, Southern Utah University, UT.
