What are some good resources to learn basic electronics?

  1. Nov 5, 2017 #1
    Hello. I am working on a project with my friends with a Arduino like microcontroller. I can understand the code and all but I don't know how certain electronic components(like H-bridge) function. What are some good resources to learn about them?

    I like "Make: electronics" by Charles Platt for learning about electronics. /edit: it probably doesn't contain the H bridge, though

    No idea about a single resource, but there are plenty of projects on the web, many with quite a reasonable explanation of how the electronics used works.

    I would love to have a single book covering these things in a more or less systematic way though, as with web it is mostly hit-and-run.
