Excellent work. Thank You for your contribution to this community as well as the world wide electronic community. I can imagining your work will be a welcome, valued resource for some time to come.

On your latest, card 33, isn't that trace to the left of the lower left capacitor a short? - Scotty

Yes, I fix it.

edit corrected. Card 33 ver 1.1 on line on set12. Thanks again.

Here I am, after a pause :D

The card 34 opens the "lab edition" where there will be: Capacitance, autorange voltmeter, frequency meter, function generator, semiconductor tester

This is an alpha version It allows to identify most of the electronic components! Especially useful for identifying the pin (and not only) of transistors / mosfets / Triac / diodes ... The resistors are critical for measurements and to get full accuracy must use 1% tolerance. I want to clarify that this is not my work (I put credits in the page), I have limited myself to adapt the software for Arduino. I repeat, this is an alpha version! I just wanted to share with you the results. In the coming days I will publish updated versions. With just under 1 € you get a component analyzer that is normally sold more than 50 €.

PighiXXX :D

This is the ArduTester, lcd version. In a few days is ready.

Pighixxx, I know I am not the first, but let me congratulate you, your stuff is very attractive, useful, and truly a work of art.

On card 25, please have a look at the legend for the EEPROM address pins, I believe they are reversed, and should read, left to right, A2 A1 A0.

Cheers … jc

Thanks Jack,

i check it.

A new card! A tribute to an old Italian electronics magazine (Elettronica Pratica, August 1974)

On card 35, two spelling mistakes:

Should be:

Always be sure to ...

@pighixxx: Your ABC booklet now referenced here (sticky forum topic).

@pighixxx Nice! Page 3 & 5, IRL540 is a N channel MOSFET Page 17, is the SD socket wired to +3.3V correctly?

Hi Nick, thanks for all! ;) In the next few days I will publish a new version of the cards and there will be some good news.

Thanks for your report. Your feedback are always welcome.

I have to add my appreciation on this product, too. It is the clear layout that is helpfull. Karma+ and Donation made.

One might discuss whether connecting a logic analyzer or a Nokia display is “Basic” - I think a subset of 10 cards for the common circuits is sufficient.

I have not read all the comments in this thread, so the following may already have been addressed:
Card 1: Switch with internal pullup - switch shorts to 5V. That does not work for me. Only the down to ground variation. No internal pullup gives random reading unless button is pushed.
One might include the switch/resistorladder circuit with sensing one-of-N buttons with an analog input (but the card is already crowded)
Card 2: Bi-colour LED: Show a diagram of a LED with 3 legs and the “likely” connection. Note that some dualLED are three colour (depending on the wiring) where you can do four states with two pins. Red, Green, Yellow (Red+Green), Black. And yes, there are two colour LEDs with two leads - I connect this to two Arduino pins and then drive it HIGH/LOW or LOW/HIGH or LOW/LOW (three states). Defenitly no room for all these combinations.
Card 9: The array - it should say “with multiplexing” there, too. It is worth (re)thinking if the diagram should have driver transistors (or chips with several of them) to be able to light more than a single LED (the circuit allows for ALL leds to be on simultaneously)

I'll also express my appreciation of the great diagrams!

And once the mess with re-mapped INTs on the Mega boards is "fixed", then that diagram will be much more useful too, :-).

Very impressed!

Just wanted to say "thank you" - what a great resource! Will probably buy the booklet too, to support you. Wonderful stuff!

I am not a big fan of paper books, I prefer electronic form, but in this case I made ??an exception and I joined this campaign.

Good work!

Great job! Thanks!
