Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Electronics Foundations: Semiconductor Devices.
- Thanks for watching this course.…I hope that you've enjoyed it…and that it's given you a better understanding…of how to use diodes, transistors, and op amps.…The examples I've shared are just a small sample…of the many ways those components can be used,…so I recommend finding a good set…of resources for circuit ideas…as you continue to learn about electronics.…The internet is a good place to start,…because there are hundreds of websites…where people have posted their own circuit designs.…Some of those designs are good.…Some of them not so much.…
But even the lousy ones can serve…as inspiration for your own better ideas.…I've included a list with a few of my favorite websites…for electronics information in the Exercise Files.…If you're more of a book person,…then I recommend The Art of Electronics.…This is widely considered…to be the go-to book for electronics.…It's loaded with circuit examples.…And in fact, many of the examples I showed you…in this course were inspired from here.…With a practical sense of how electronics work…
