The electronics books of Forrest M. Mims III have educated and inspired millions of people since the ’80s, thanks to Mims’ friendly and concise writing style and his hand-drawn illustrations. Electrical engineer Star Simpson is one of Mims’ fans, and she came up with a wonderful homage to the author.
Star’s Circuit Classics are newbie-friendly circuit boards based on three of Mims’ many sample circuit diagrams: a dual LED flasher, a stepped tone generator and a bar graph voltage indicator. Mims’ hand-drawn schematic sits beside the circuit itself, drawn over a copper plate that mimics the notebook lines in Mims’ books. The reverse side of each board has’ Mims’ explanation about the circuit as well as a citation.
