Historical Technology Books - 44 in a series - How To Read Electronic Circuit Diagrams by Robert M. Brown; Paul Lawrence (1972)

 

 

Preface

Circuit diagrams are the basic means for relating information regarding the construction and functions of electronic equipment, a method of showing the circuits and components in symbolic or pictorial form in a universal language. Therefore, the ability to read and understand electronics circuit diagrams is a must for those who aspire to a career in electronics or for those who will pursue electronics as a hobby. In this book you learn the significance of each type of diagram* Some show specific circuits with each part represented by a schematic symbol-while others use actual photographs or drawings to illustrate the appearance and physical location and relation of each part and circuit wiring—a pictorial or layout diagram. Thus you learn to recognize each diagram for its intended purpose, and develop the ability to derive the correct information from the maze of weird looking symbols and lines*

We begin with the basics—schematic symbols—so as not to leave out anything necessary to a thorough understanding. Then, we progress to actual diagrams and show you how to analyze each type —to read the diagram and acquire an understanding of how the device really works. In so doing, you also learn where to look for trouble and how to determine whether or not a circuit is doing what it was designed to do.. The appendix includes all currently used electronic symbols, and a glossary explains the most commonly encountered terms.

Robert M, Brown & Paul Lawrence

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
