  3. 3. Nathen Street www.nathenstreet.com www.twitter.com/veryphatic
  4. 4. Stages of DIY electronics designYou get an idea! Prototype Schematic +PCB designPCB Manufacture
  5. 5. What we’re making
  6. 6. Electric circuit“An electric circuit is formed when a conductive path is created toallow free electrons to continuously move. This continuousmovement of free electrons through the conductors of a circuit iscalled a current, and it is often referred to in terms of "flow," justlike the flow of a liquid through a hollow pipe.The force motivating electrons to "flow" in a circuit iscalled voltage. “http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_2/1.html
  7. 7. ElectricityResistance, Voltage, Current
  8. 8. ResistanceResistance is the hindrance to the flow of charge.
  9. 9. VoltageVoltage is the force or pressure that excites the electrons to flow.
  10. 10. CurrentCurrent is the rate of the electrical charge passing through a point ona circuit, measured as a quantity over time.
