Circuit Classics: Getting Restarted in Electronics

by Lambert Varias

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.
