Basics of Electronics … a “Toybox”
This toy box of simple tools on basic concepts in Electronics and Electrical Engineering was created by Alan Murray in the School of Engineering. They are not at all exhaustive and are chosen to fit the material taught by Alan in the first-year courses Engineering 1 and Electrical Engineering 1.
Please note – these simulations work on a Windows machine.
All of the tools are modifiable. The spreadsheets are “protected” so that the casual user can only change selected numbers, but you can unprotect your copy and then make your own changes. If you create anything you’re especially proud of (or alternatively find similar useful “toys” elsewhere), please email Alan Murray with your changes, comments, or suggestions for eventual improvement.
Notes: The slider controls etc. can behave in a silly manner if you change resolution without rebooting your machine (e.g. by docking/undocking it or by using a data projector). This is a well-known bug and is cured by rebooting the computer plugged into whatever you do or do not want it plugged into.
