Here are circuits made of Resistors, Capacitors and Inductors which are passive components. Crystals, Thermistors, Varistors, Variable Passive RLC are also Passive Parts.
This is a way of learning. You must be sound in building analog and logic circuits first.
This is the order of learning ..
- Learn to use Batteries, LEDs, Wires, Switches, Soldering Iron and Resistors.
- Build some projects with NPN and PNP transistors with capacitors.
- Try some Toy Transmitters and Receivers using RF devices and Inductors.
- Fix some power supplies like Transformers, Diodes, Regulators.
- Configure small Analog Amplifiers and also Audio Amplifiers, 555 Timer.
- Test out some LOGIC circuits with the 40xx Chips like 4093, 4028.
- Start with some small PIC project or 80C51 Microcontroller.
- Make a SOC with DSP and build a Robot Brain controlled Online.
