Thanks Max for giving overview of Basic of Electronics.

Iron

I've seen some error in Transistor introduction, It should be Bipolar Junction Transistor(BJT). FET are voltage controlled device & formed by different process. 

Iron

Wonderful refreshment course of electronics fundamentals

My analogy of voltage, current and resistance were based/compared with river flow through some channels

Hello to archives knowledge

Thank you for archiving this.  It is always good to brush up.

Iron

I started studying electronics 3 years ago as something to do during recovery from surgery. I studied long, not really too hard, and received my Extra class ham radio license. Much of what was covered today I just learned recently while preparing for the ham exams. This is  an excellent refresher, and at my age (65), refreshment helps. Thanks for presenting this for free. Max is very good a teacher. 

Iron

Great presentation - lots of information I haven't used in years!

updated adobe flash player 11 to hear audio on new Win 7 64 Home

Iron

no, I have not seen that slide.

Iron

no specific electronic application, just an interest as a hobbyist.

Iron

listening to the archived session.

 

Iron

I look forward to more

Iron

interesting first class

Iron

Audio/ Video electronics

Iron

nice fast review . Thanks Max for such a beautiful presentation.

Iron

Nice presentation and great review.  I will going through the whole series of presentations.

Iron

Thank for the great presentation

no I havent seen the slide

Picking up another course a bit late

cannot view archived for some reason?   Have taken classes before.

Iron

Who is the second voice /?

Iron

Water example for inductance - water hammer affect in pipes.

Thanks again Max for another interesting look into electronics.

Iron

Trying to catch up due to being out of town.

Thank you for the class

Iron

Thanks Max for sharing these fundamental concepts. Good refresher.

Iron

My powerpoint says that no text converter is available. Thus my slide is not opening!

 

Iron

From Basic Concepts to gates in one hour? Wow -- that's fast Max!

God basic review if you already had some of this stuff and forgot it all! :-)

Well done!

Iron

Thanks Max, for a good refresher lecture.

Good analogy of inductance, Max!

Yes, I saw the same anology as discussed in slide 7

Catching up today's lecture!

Max, when I design power supplies I'd like to know how I can use math for low loss inductors in my circuits?

Iron

Thanks, Max.  Wonderfully understandable presentation!

Gold

I think longer lectures would be beneficial

Iron

refesher course so I can rejoin the work force

Iron

OK -- I've got to go -- C U tomorrow -- Max

Blogger

GeoSei - didn't know that it was,  unless it is part of the device package in the form of BeO - berylium oxide - a super thermally conductive material which causes severe alergic reactions in some individuals, when in the form of dust.

Iron

Re Berrillium -- I think it's used as a base/substrate in high-poewer transistoirs -- but not in transistoirs we use to make logic gates and ICs

Blogger

LEDs - go to the archives here - there was a week about LEDs a few months ago

Max,

What is Berylium used for in Transistors?

TIA

 

Iron

Mose Si Wafers are 300m min diameter today, but some plants are now at 450mm

Blogger

Speed is faster with GaAs -- but it's a much harder material to work with (also the Arsnide part is poisoness)

Blogger

GaAs isn't as big a wafer though, Si up to 300mm?

Iron

LEDs are a topic for a completely separate story

silicon is very abundant - does speed increase appreciably with GaS(?)?

In the case of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) -- they use a bunch of different elements to get the different colors

Blogger

If you take any elements in the same family as ilicons -- you can use them -- so silicon, germanium, and carbon (in th eform of diamond).  Tings like Gallium Arsnide involve mixing two different elements.

Blogger

longer lectures would be great, especially with this kind of subject matter

Iron

Thank you so much. Please taske the time you need. The slides were great.

Iron

There's also some use of derpsiting a layer of germanium on top of silicon

Blogger

Good session, thank you

Iron

I don't mind to have a 50 minutes of lecture instead of 30 minutes. This is good way to learn things. Thanks!

Iron

In the case of ICs, Gallium Arsenide is used for really high-speed stuff

Blogger

somewhere in the basement is a copy of TTL Cookbook....

regarding TTL:
I got the entire book on TTL UCY74 series and their implementation from My Father - the DSP guru :-)

ok...thank you...looking forward to the rest of your presentations

Iron

Once again -- thansk to everyone for taking the time to join me and for your very kind words

Blogger

what other material, aside from silicon is being used as a substrate?

till tomorrow...

Iron

Thank You, Don't worry about time just give us information.  I like the basic start.

Iron

Re the question about Opamps -- I'm afraid not -- that woudl be a session in its own right

Blogger

OK 3pm EDT..I've got to go. Thanks

As we will se ewhen we come to discuss silicon chips -- we can now build literally billions of transistors on a single chip... it's mind-blowing...

Blogger

are you going to be looking at opamps at all this week?

Iron

thanks Max, see you tomorrow.

Iron

Max, Thank you very much for the presentation. It was very informative and I enjoyed tremendously. Thanks again!! Brian

Iron

Re an Exam ... how would anyone force you to take it? (grin)

Blogger

Awesome explanation.  Thank you!!

Iron

I remember RTL and DTL and TTL .... :-)

Blogger

is there a test over this material?

Gold

@dejohnny...no exam has been required in any of the past presentations/classes

Iron

It used to be easier to make PMOS transistors (but they were slower) -- just using NMOS transistors was easier -- but CMOS rules because it uses so much less power

Blogger

one comment before I go about the non-complimentary logic. does anyone remember DTL or RTL?

Iron

Thanks for the presentation. Just a quick remark:
I am aware of the time constraints but I think that as the complexity of the content of the following slides goes up, the lecturer shouldn't be cutting down on time spent on those following slides - especially first diode, or transistor - as that is where first and most of the people get lost/confused with the basics of electricity, of the whole "how it works" needed for later.

@PRIMECHUCK...all presentations can be accessed in the "archive" link in themenu above

Iron

Is there an exam for this course? If so, when do we take it?

Iron

What are the advantages of CMOS NMOS and PMOS?

If we can't listen live can we still get copies of everything?

Where can I see a repeat of this.

Iron

Th egreat thing about CMOS is that it uses a lot less power because there aren;t any resisters per se

Blogger

You can also make logic gates using only PMOS transistoirs and resisters...

Blogger

thank you for a good info

Iron

Re the question about what woudl be non-complementary -- some early ICs were NMOS only -- that is, you can form logic gates using only NMOS transistors and resisters...

Blogger

Time to earn my keep. Thanks Max and Rich, see all tomorrow.

Iron

@max: so in cmos, you use both an npn fet and a pnp fet in the same circuit?  Which type conducts when the higher (Logic 1) voltage is applied?

Iron

anyone wanting to capture the audio files to save to their own storage...contact me directly

Iron

Thank you Max, looking forward to tomorrow's session

Max Mott

Iron

I think they post it for replay later

The audio will remain in the archive at least until the end of the year

Blogger

I worked for Rockwell Int Rocketdyne div in the 90s we had a program called discover E we went to schools in socal

Iron

...and Slide 27 shows how an "Easy Bake Oven" works!  (grin)   Max, you're the greatest, I really enjoy all of your material!

@krisranes ..yes all audio and slides are available thru the "archive" link above in the menus

Iron

Never hurts to have a refresher!

Iron

this was a great review...thank you

Iron

Really enjoyed it. See you tomorrow....same time.

Iron

Can we get the audio presentation?

Iron

What would be the opposite of CMOS?  If it's non-complementary?

Iron

That's right -- CMOS (complemnentary MOS) is NMOS and PMOS transistors connected together in a complementary manner

Blogger

Thank you Max, I was cut off for a time so I will try to listen to what I missed later.

Iron

Thanks Max, very informative.

Iron

Thanks. Without the LaPlace transforms, this stuff can be pretty interesting! :0

Iron

what gives basic LED's their color?

 

Iron

So is there a "light" transistor in the future ?

Iron

Great educational.  Thank you, Max.

Iron

Thanks for the session ..it refreseh my mind.

 

Iron

You explained how capacitors work, but for what purpose would I use one? 

Thank you for the refersher.

looking forward to tomorrow's class

Gold

will any of the audio be avialable later

 

Iron

Thanks Max and Rich!   And thanks for letting Max finish!    Looking forward to FPGAs.

Thank you Max.  Look forward to the rest of the lectures.

Iron

cmos is complimentary N and P mos transitors

Thanks dig-key too!

 

Iron

Outstanding job, Max.  

 

Iron

This presentation brings back good memories. Thanks Max!

Iron

Been doing this for a jillion years, but it's great to go over it all in one place.

I'll be keeping an archinve of is.

Iron

Thanks so much for your kind words everyone

Blogger

looking forward to tomorrow and rest of week

Iron

Thanks Max, it was a nice review

Iron

thank you Max. This has been good. 'looking forward to the next few days.

I wish my phone or IE would have worked :-(

 

Iron

Thank you Max! Sorry you had to rush the content. :(

Iron

Thanks for all infor and review...

thanks a lot. the presentation is really helpful

Iron

If we get cut off, watch this page for news.

Blogger

Got to go this was great.

 

Iron
in slide 25, there is no delay in Vout/sw-state
Iron

thanks Rich...greatly appreciated

Iron

Yes, please keep going

Iron

We will let Max go as long as the system allows.

Blogger

Very interesting stuff!  I agree,keep it going.

Iron

rick.curl - audio is available in archive in an hour or so typically

Iron

good review would like to finish

I'm happy  for a little more "air" time.

Iron

Will audio archive be available later?

Iron

Rich, could we go a liitle longer? Thank you

Iron

I agree...allow Max to finish presentation in whatever time it takes

Iron

agreed.  would rather cut Q&A

Agree, go over the time, good presentation.

Iron

Mr. Maxfield, going to have to catch up on your lecture later, I hope it may be available later. Could never get audio to work, firewall too strong.

Thank you.

 

Iron

This is great!  Let him speak as long as possible...

Iron

Same here, please let him finish.

Iron

I'd just as soon go over also

yes, can we go over the time to hear the whole lecture?

 

Iron

Yes... please go over!

Moderater:  can we shorten the Q&A and let Max speak longer?

 

Yes, very interesting, go over.

Iron

There isn't enough time given for this lecture. I feel cheated a bit!

Iron

can we go over a little rich ?

 

Iron

@G Anderson, ferro meaning ferrous or iron.

Iron

G Anderson - yes, like transformer lamination

Iron

Yes, ferromagnetic material is magnetic iron/steel.

Iron

ferro magnetic material a metal?

Iron

The effect know as water hammer is a manifestation of the accelerative head in of a liquid in a long tube being brought to a sudden stop.  This is analigous to sudden the voltage spike that is observed accross a switching device in series with an inductor after the switch is shut off.

remember the water chart from either ee101 or physics 101

Iron

inductance...    "peer pressure"

I've seen the water analogy before.

Iron

you need a larger resistor for the 2.5 watts.

 

Iron

yes, seen pressure diagram before.

Iron

"but I probably wouldn't interrupt a good presentation with a dumb poll like that..."

Same here. Seriously? Let the man talk.

Iron

dastring: nicely done

Blogger

if I had a nickel for every time I said "V = IR" I'd be a hppy man.

Blogger

Electron migrate down the copper at about 13,000ft/sec. The electromagnet force (photons) move down the conductor at around 2/3 the speed of light. The photon knock the electrons off the atoms as the go. The electron move is a secondary event.

Iron

first time I've seen this analogy

Iron

something similar

Iron

these interuptions are not helpful, at all

Iron

FF and chrom never loaded for me, IE did

Iron

yup...

but I probably wouldn't interrupt a good presentation with a dumb poll like that...

 

Iron

See similar diagrams with water/electricity analogy, but like Max's tank & pressure better than ones I saw.

Iron

@technologist.  I have the most up to date android razr maxx.  4g dual core and i click on the "live now!" link to no avail :-(

Iron

I haven't, but I've always used the fluid flow analogy for EE systems.

similar diagram, but everything was in black and white back then

Iron

@rich - yes, not exact same slide but a similar picture (there was no Powerpoint when I studied EE).

Iron

Stop interupting

 

Iron

hello

looks familiar

 

I remember it from my freshman year in high school, aeons ago (well, 29 years anyhow)

new to me....wish I saw this in 101

 

Heard the analogy never seen the slide.

Iron

Yes, saw a similar image in the late 60's.   :)

hello everyone...sorry I am late

Iron

I have heard it but not this slide before.

Have you seen the "water slide" before to descrive electricity?

Blogger

Never seen this diagram

Iron

yes! this is a good anology!

Iron

Never seen this slide before... great analogy

Iron

More than once, and it still works.

Iron

yes - always a good analogy

Iron

same description, but not exactly the same slide

 

no, I have not seen slide 7

Iron

Yep...very familiar

 

Iron

No, never saw it.

 

Iron

similar one, not exactly the same with a tank

Iron

@tc138003 It depends what version of Android you have, but if you have Android 3.x and at least a dual core processor and flash installed then you should be able to see this just fine

yes, learned electricity the same way with water flow and bowling ball analogies.

Iron

Do the electrons push from the negative, or are they pulled from the positive on the right?

same here - just a refresher for me... but can't miss another lecture by Max :)

Iron

does anyone know how to make this work on android?

 

Iron

when F5 is not doing its job, close IE, then login again.

Iron

refresher course for me... no problem listening via IE

Iron

Would be nice if a slide showed the electron shells (2 first shell, 8 next shell, etc.)

Iron

@kentj they are using the flash streaming ports so they might be blocked on your firewall

Figured it out...government employee, blogtalkradio blocked...

my company network blocks some flash, had to log out of the company VPN and now works just fine.

Iron

nice notes on electronics

 

Iron

Closed and reopened browser...nothing...

thanks it was a refreshing for me

 

Iron

I'm in Firefox and it's working fine.

Blogger

audio works for me in Chrome

@jalnc, try browser refresh

Iron

Audio Ok in Chrome..

Iron

Dan: it gets passed this pretty quickly

Blogger

Love this!  Doing great!

Iron

I don't see the message at the top that should be saying Buffering or Blog Talk Radio either.

Iron

No audio for me either, just made sure I had latest version of the player

Phooey...

Receiving no sound.  Player did not initiate.

Iron

...buffering still

Iron

Had to change from FF to IE to hear audio

Iron

OK, this really is the "let there be light" begining!

Iron

Receiving no sound.  Player did not initiate.

Iron

In the dotted circle is there always 1 -ve with 1 +ve.  It's hard to tell from the diagram.

@fwjava as the audio streaming uses Flash and iPad (iOS) does not support flash

@fwjava The best way to watch this on an iPad is Citrix Receiver to either a PC or Mac and then run it that way

@danlafleur, Thank you.

Iron

@Jawanda, the audio app will appear at 2:00pm EST along with the audio. It should appear as a red box with a progress bar.

Iron

Wheres the audio app above the text box?

Iron

jeffmo: same to you

Blogger

danlafleur: much appreciated

Blogger

Nobody has asked about iPad before. I'm not sure how that's gong to work. Please let me know.

Blogger

The audio player should start at 2:00 EST (or a few seconds after that). If you're having a problem, let me know via the chat and we will get our tech experts on it

Blogger

Also, if you get the audio player, and you hear an endless loop of "Blog Talk Radio", refresh the page and that should fix it.

Iron

@woolleyman27, yes, at the top of the hour is when the audio starts with an introduction and then the session. You'll see the audio app above the text box for posting comments.

Iron
What is the best way to watch this on an IPAD?
Iron

I'm wondering the same thing

 

first time doing this, do i just wait on this page till 2:00 and then it starts?

Has anyone tried the gumbo recipe from Bebop to the Boolean Boggie? It looks like a keeper to me.
