Four building blocks of an electronic project

In Chapter 2Basic Electronics, we discussed the four building blocks of an electronic project. The following diagram shows these four blocks:

It is really easy to break a simple prototype, like a circuit to turn an LED on and off, into the individual blocks but for more complex projects it becomes harder because of the different components.

By separating the components into the different blocks, it becomes easier to see how to break a larger project into separate prototypes. For example, if we wanted to create an autonomous robot we could see that one of the inputs is a sonic rangefinder that ...
