This Site is dedicated to those individuals who are seeking ways to better their understanding of the Electronics, Digital, and Microprocessor Technologies.

Having retired from approximately 35 years of teaching, and a good deal of industrial experience over 44 years, I would like to pass on some of the methods that have proven to be successful in the classroom and in the "real-world".

Some of the methods presented here may even seem somewhat unusual, but they have proven to be effective. There are some that I have used in the classroom for many years, that are still not found in the textbooks.

"What one fool can do, another can"

The "Theory Problems" presented are deviations from the normal "Cookbook" concepts. The normal "Cookbook" methods tend to lead the individual into a false sense of "understanding" the concepts. These "deviations" bring the individual to grips with whether they really do understand.

The "Tests" are real, and have proven to be a fair evaluation of a student's understanding of the material.

The "Labs" are in like manner, in that some are very straight forward. Where others have subtle "snafus", requiring the individual to properly study the situation, not just do a "monkey-see monkey-do".  Whereas in the classroom the only warning the student had was to "Don't trust any of the labs as given", there will be ample warning given here for these labs.  In that respect, most of the labs given here will be very normal, with good lessons to be learned.

This material is not intended as a substitute for the many good textbooks that are available. It should be used as a toolbox of helpful ideas, for what might be unique concepts and methods toward a better understanding of some material.

I do not intend to present myself as any more than any other ordinary individual, who has had their share of difficulty in learning certain material.  I only wish to share some of the simple methods that really work, to make certain areas of what might otherwise be overly complicated, perhaps become   actually "understandable".

It does take a considerable amount of time to prepare each of the pages that are presented here, whether they are text format or copies of schematics. Please bear with me as I replace the "In Construction" with what I hope is worthwhile.

A Special Note: I have decided to open some material that is still in developement, with the hope that it will contain useful information to folks as I continue to develop it, rather than waiting until it has been "completed".
