EVERYTHING FOR ELECTRONICS
contain example circuits that show the practical application of components.
They’re also great at identifying general application areas, such as RF, audio,
Another approach to component selection worth noting is to explore
existing circuits. That is, to tear down whatever you can get your hands on.
Want to know what kind of electrolytic capacitors go into a good AC-DC
power supply? Take one apart. Given the output voltage range of the supply,
how conservatively are the output capacitors rated? Unless you’re dealing with
a super cheap supply, you’ll find the capacitor max voltage rating of about
twice the maximum expected output voltage. After a few teardowns, you’ll not
only get a feel for the specific components you need to have on hand, but also
practical information on component layout and overall circuit design. NV
