Electronics For You, South Asia’s most popular electronics magazine, is popular amongst techies who want to know everything about the world of electronics. Some of the sections popular amongst our readers include Circuit Ideas, Construction and Do-it-Yourself. These sections carry articles that help readers make unique electronics devices without much effort.
The articles don’t just offer superficial information about a device or a project but in-depth, step-by-step descriptions about the circuit and how it works, as well as the construction and testing of the product. They serve as a handy guide for designing unique and useful electronic devices as the reader is informed about all the aspects, including what components are to be used, how to attach them, information about the test points, actual size figures of the PCBs, component layouts, the software used, what to check when the device is not working properly, etc.
In fact, these projects are also used by students doing their higher studies as their research papers and assignments. If you are creative and like to explore the different and unusual ways to modify these ideas, you can create different kinds of devices as per your needs.
Don’t forget to refer to some previous issues of the magazine where devices like the Cable Tester, Bhajan and Mantra Chanting Amplifier, Cupboard Light, Sensitive LPG Leakage Alarm, Multifunction Power Supply, PIR Security Light, SMS-based Automation System, RF-based Dual-mode Robot, Smart Power Control System, GSM-based Dot-matrix Display, EEPROM Interface for Beginners, and Accelerometer-based Gesture-Controlled Robot have been covered.
Commenting on the importance of sharing such circuit ideas, Ramesh Chopra, founder and vice chairman, Electronics For You, said, “This magazine aims to make technology as friendly as possible for the users. The circuit ideas published in Electronics For You are well-tested and detailed to allow users to try their hand at some really innovative devices.”
Watch out for the upcoming issues of the magazine to explore innovative gadgets like the Two-way Clap-Controlled Switch, the RF Touch-Alarm Switch, Simple Protection for Loudspeakers, Demo Circuit for Over-voltage Protection, Semiconductor Relay for Automotive Applications, Hand Video Game Space Invader, RTC-based Event Logger, Remote Sensing Centigrade Thermometer, etc.
