Chapter 16. Resources

In the project chapters of Practical Arduino we covered a range of electronics topics using real-world examples. In this chapter, we provide a little grab bag of additional electronics techniques and topics that you might find useful. On the Practical Arduino web site, you'll find a complementary set of hints and tips on the software side of Arduino development. We elected to split things in this manner, as the software side of Arduino is moving relatively faster than the electronics topics we wanted to cover.

Simple Voltage Regulators

Often your project will need regulated power beyond what can be tapped from the Arduino board itself. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is through the use of a three-terminal regulator. ...
