ABC: Basic Connections – The Essential Book for Makers
Arduino is the world’s most popular open-source electronics tool, used every day by millions of people for experimenting and learning electronics. Thanks to the support of the maker community, anyone can share their knowledge and learn from thousands of other projects. You can create anything using basic components like switches and LEDs, or more advance components like digital interfaces and wireless communication modules. The only limit is your imagination!
Makers around the world have asked themselves the same question: where do I find reliable and easy to use circuit diagrams for my projects? I’ve spent years tinkering and making stuff with Arduino, ARM mbed, ESP8266, etc. and one of the things that always annoyed was how difficult it was to find reliable, simple to read and aesthetically pleasing circuit diagrams, reference tables and pinouts.
Back in 2013 I began designing my own and making them available for free on my website pighixxx.com. I have created so far more than 300 high quality circuit diagrams and pinouts that are used by more than 500,000 makers worldwide. The feedback from the community has been amazing and it has encouraged me to create more and more content. The only problem is that they’re not very convenient to use on your computer screen where the programming environment should be the main open window. Also, printing the diagrams can only add more clutter to your desk.
We’ve been working hard for the past months to deliver a great product that will solve these problems.
ABC: Basic Connections
ABC: Basic Connections is a completely redesigned selection of the best circuit diagrams, reference tables and pinouts from pighixxx.com, plus many new unreleased designs.
The book is a collection of neat, easy to read circuit diagrams and pinouts that will show you how to properly connect almost anything to your Arduino, ARM mbed or ESP8266 compatible boards. ABC: Basic Connections is great for both beginners and professionals and it can be used as a resource for teaching electronics.
