This pcDuino maker directory is your map at the beginning of the embedded electronic marine navigation. This book contains all the relevant information about 15 experimental circuit of PcDuino maker suite,which is for educators to explore . The book has a core concept- that all people can (and should) play electronic products. When you have finished reading this guide, you will get all the knowledge to create your own project or experiment.Let us now put into action and start creating it.
A computer in the material world
In your hands (or on your desk), this pcDuino is your development platform. Basic speaking, pcDuino is a miniature mobile computers. It can receive input (such as a key press or read data from the photosensitive sensor) and the compiler can control different outputs various information (such as lighting or a drive motor).
This is the “physical computing” has been born. This board can speak with the electronic world, connect with the material world by the real touch way . In the following pages, will soon clarify the truth.
What is a circuit?
A circuit is a closed loop that electrons can travel in. A source of electricity, such as a battery, provides electrical energy in the circuit. Unless the circuit is complete, that is, making a full circle back to the electrical source, no electrons will move.Generally, there is some appliance that uses electricity in the circuit. The appliance may, for example, provide light or heat or mechanical energy.
Circuit is usually divided into three categories: analog circuits, digital circuits and hybrid circuits. In this book, you will learn this three circuits.
Run the world on the circuit
Any place you see, you can find circuits. The mobile phone in your pocket, automobile emission control system on your computer, your video game console, all these things are full of circuits. In this guide, you will experience some simple circuits and learn the core knowledge embedded electronics world.
Simple and complex circuits
In this guide, you will experience some simple circuit firstly, but that does not mean you can use simple tools to do great things. When you have completed to read this guide, and have mastered the circuit knowledge ,that will allow you to explore the great projects and develop your imagination.
