Download E-books Volume 1 - Teoria básica e componentes eletrônicos (MONTAGENS ELETRÔNICAS PARA QUEM NÃO É TÉCNICO) (Portuguese Edition) PDF

By Paulo Edson Mazzei

Umas palavras...

Escrevi esse livro para encorajá-lo(a) a se aventurar na montagem de pequenos aparelhos eletrônicos, geralmente divulgados em revistas, net e livros técnicos da área. Nos muitos anos de prática na área profissional e de ensino de eletrônica, sempre me deparei com jovens e veteranos fascinados por eletrônica, mas sem coragem para ir em frente e realmente realizar alguma montagem.
As revistas técnicas de eletrônica, livros da área e milhares de websites na net, despejam um grande quantity de informações sobre as mais variadas áreas da eletrônica, indo de pequenas fontes de alimentação até equipamentos sofisticados como um analisador de espectro feito em casa!
Entretanto, apenas uma pequena parte dessas informações passa para o montador(a) iniciante do que realmente deve ser feito, iniciando-se com uma pequena descrição do circuito e indo até detalhes finais como a calibração e uso (algumas vezes). No meio dessa “via crucis”, as informações são mínimas, mas necessárias para o(a) iniciante. Como, por exemplo, desenhar o Iayout de uma placa de circuito impresso, que é a dificuldade de inúmeras montagens. Outros temas como leitura de diagrama esquemático, Iayout e desenho de caixas para abrigar os pequenos projetos, uso de equipamentos de teste, localização de falhas, quase nunca aparecem. Não foi esquecida a localização (disponibilidade) e substituição de componentes eletrônicos.
Note bem que ecu não “inventei” nada. O que faço nesse livro é dar as dicas de como tomar “montáveI” um projeto de montagem. Usei projetos meus feitos ao longo do pace, alguns projetos de amigos e outros de livros, revistas e web, dando os créditos ao autor do projeto unique. Usei um mínimo de teoria: só o necessário para explicar detalhes muito úteis de um componente ou circuito e na hora de possíveis substituições. Centenas de bons livros no mercado e na web, poderão ajudá-lo a se aprofundar na parte teórica da eletrônica.
A linguagem usada em todo texto procurou ser adequada ao principiante, fazendo com que você se sinta mais á vontade para encarar a montagem de um aparelho eletrônico. Que me perdoem os “amadores profissionais”...
Também não tive verba para contratar um revisor para o texto, mas creio que os leitores estão mais interessados na técnica do que no purismo do vernáculo. Se isso o incomoda, mande um email para mim com suas sugestões.
O quantity 1 apresenta a você a teoria muito básica da eletrônica e alguns componentes eletrônicos mais usados nas montagens que você irá fazer. Resistores, capacitores, indutores, semicondutores, etc., são apresentados , quando necessário, com um pouquinho de teoria. Não vou concorrer com bons livros de eletrônica que podem ser encontrado as livrarias! Isso com um mínimo de teoria sem bla bla bla! Veja o “Click to seem INSIDE!”, emblem acima da foto da capa do livro, que está no website da
Entretanto, chega de palavras e mãos a obra! Nunca deixe o soldador esfriar...!!
