10  |  Constructing Circuits

The steps and stages involved in taking a project from an initial idea to a fully built, tested, and packaged end product are both numerous and variable. Some of these steps, such as circuit layout, and testing and analysis procedures, have already been examined in the preceding chapters. Here the entire process is addressed from end to end. The simple fuzz effect circuit first introduced in Chapter 7 is used as a case study in order to examine the steps involved in a fully developed audio electronics project.

The Project Pipeline

The stages in any project can vary, but a typical sequence will include the following.

Initiation: The initial circuit idea is developed, either designed from scratch or identified ...
