This book is just cool. Volume one of a three-volume series, *The Encyclopedia of Electronic Components *is, well, exactly what it sounds like. Want to know how to use an electronic component? Want to look up a component you've never heard of? This book includes key information on electronics parts for your projects; complete with photographs, schematics, and diagrams.

Interesting book. I like how it explains how components work. I think that there is a sequal. BTW check out Charles platts "make electronics". It's a great book for getting you into electronics, and I've learned a lot from it.
Make: Encyclopedia of Electronic Components Volume 1 - This first book of a three-volume set includes key information on electronics parts for your projects complete with photographs, schematics, and diagrams. You'll learn what each one does, how it works, why it's useful, and what variants exist. No matter how much you know about electronics, you'll find fascinating details you've never come across before.

Charles Platt is a Contributing Editor and regular columnist for Make magazine, where he writes about electronics. He is the author of the highly successful introductory hands-on book, Make: Electronics, and is writing a sequel to that book in addition to volumes 2 and 3 of the Encyclopedia of Electronic Components. Platt was a Senior Writer for Wired magazine, and has written various computer books. As a prototype designer, he created semi-automated rapid cooling devices with medical applications, and air-deployable equipment for first responders. He was the sole author of four mathematical-graphics software packages, and has been fascinated by electronics since he put together a telephone answering machine from a tape recorder and military-surplus relays at age 15. He lives in a Northern Arizona wilderness area, where he has his own workshop for prototype fabrication and projects that he writes about for Make magazine.
However, the development of this box is almost 20 years old, and electronic components and actuators that are already technologically outdated were used for its construction. Nonetheless, the work developed by Krupa and collaborators  allowed a great advance in the understanding of the rodent somatosensory system. Still, there are other works that show that the nose region of the rat primary somatosensory cortex (SI) integrates information from contralateral and ipsilateral whisker pads. In order to overcome the technological difficulties, we envision the possibility of developing a low-cost portable device that uses components present in the market and that allows the rodent to train tactile discrimination with greater efficiency and more resources. Nowadays, the operation of the box is a complex procedure, involving controller boards connected to a dedicated PC, an air compressor for actuators driving, and a PCB with numerous components affixed to a frame of more than 1 m2. In addition, this outdated (previous) platform used numerous components that are very rare to be found nowadays. Besides these problems, one of its advantages is the concept of open hardware that was adopted, which means that anyone can assemble, modify, improve, and customize it, starting from the same basic hardware. 041b061a72
