Hi all,
I am trying to build a simple electric circuit that includes some microcintrollers and ultrasonic receivers and transmitters.
The thing is that I have no idea about how to build electric circuits. I do have a BSC in Physics and Computer Science, so I believe I could study it by myself.
I tried looking at the university's syllabi but couldn't find anything usefule.
Can anyone recommend me about a good book to start from?
I need something that is the basis: How to combine all the components, understanding how everything works.

Thanks,
Guy Yafe

Welcome to the PF. If you are looking for an intro electonics book, the Art of Electronics by Horowitz and Hill is a good read, IMO:

http://www.amazon.com/Art-Electronic...4528403&sr=8-1

You can take a look at it at your local university library to see if it looks good to you.

Great!

This is exactly what I was looking for.
Basically EE 1-O-1.
Thanks a lot for your help.
