ABC - Arduino Basic Connections

You are the drawing master!

I have the following comments for your consideration:

  • Card 1, Pushbutton to 12 Volts - Bubble change Italian to English, both buttons, suggest maybe say "Arduino Pin Goes Low (or High) when button pressed" kinda like Card 3 for clarity?
  • Card 1, Analogic Input change to "Analog Input" (or British "Analogue Input" :-)
  • Card 3, is capacitor polarized?
  • Card 4, Triac diagram has K A G and schematic has A1, A2, G
  • Card 9, define resistors without values (270 ohm I think)
  • Card 10, Use periods instead of commas for voltage values in table Card a, use commas instead of periods to separate thousands, also no tolerance band is 20% I think

Again, great work!!

Your donation link on your website is broken, and this project definitely deserves a beer!!

Thank you!

This is awesome.

Thank you!

Thanks dude! Due to the high traffic, my website has some problems. If you want to donate by paypal, my email address is pighixxx(at)gmail(dot)com

Thanks Thekitty, thanks to your suggestions in the next few days I will publish cards corrected, and then i publish three new cards

...and thanks to all! :D

I combined the English PDFs and uploaded the file to my server at this location:

Enjoy!

Brilliant! I use Arduinos in my classroom, and one of my students directed me to this. It's a work of art - thank you for sharing it!

Very good indeed.

I suggest making a zipped version of the PDF (altogether) to reduce download quantities.

On this page: http://www.pighixxx.com/pgdev/ABC/PNG/disp11e.png

The word is spelt (spelled) "tolerance" not "tollerance".

Please consider a page about capacitor markings, eg. 104 etc.

Plus what TheKitty said about decimal places. English speakers generally use 1,000 to mean a thousand and 1.000 to mean one with 3 decimal places of zeroes.

Thanks, i'm working on. In the next few days I get out the new cards and the old cards with the corrections. Stay tuned

Aaaawsome!!!

  1. PDF is to a large extent is compressed Postscript. So would not get any compression program to compress it further or only a little.

  2. As extension of PDF, most modern browser is able open it for online read.

  3. The zip extension is too wintel centric.

I had the great fortune to see these wonderful drawings about a week or so back…
In over 50 years in this industry (Electronics) I have NEVER seen the equivalent. It’s one half of a basic electronics course… On Flash Cards…
I did notice that some of the color codes would seriously bear re-visiting.
This work would do VERY WELL WITH IT’S OWN SECTION… IMNSHO IT IS THAT IMPORTANT… on another thought…
I Wonder how long before it shows up on Ebay as part of an “Arduino Training Kit”… Sold By SainSmart?

It's one half of a basic electronics course... On Flash Cards...

Maybe you can write the other half Doc 8)... perhaps a beginner's explanation of the theory of each of the pix, to be printed back-to-back... And of course the "third half" would be a sketch to go with each.

Every operating system I know of these days supports .zip files because they have been around so long. For example on my Mac it opens them just by double-clicking. And when I RH-click and select “compress X” it produces a .zip file.

As a comparison I took disp11e.pdf (one of the ABC cards) which is 142 kB. I zipped it (on the Mac) and got 85 kB. So, almost half.

On the Arduino software downloads page (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software) the Mac version is supplied as a .zip file.

Ubuntu and other Linux variants have zip decompression software either supplied already or available for free.

[/quote] 1- 85/142=1-60%=40% 40% is not a little, good catch. normal pdf to a large extent is compressed Postscript, like ebook from publisher. compress it further do recieve that much gain. however pdf support much more object other than text. i.e. font, image... at OP case is pdf with embed image. average zip compress ratio at jpeg is 20-25%. here is 40%. some fine tune might need. This the question for OP, What is app you use?

edit object images at this pdf,

acrobat->view->tool->edit object

Card 11 on line.
