Today, many of our daily appliances and equipment use electronics, sensors and sophisticated computer technologies. Circuit Designing is an integral part of any Electronic Gadget or Robotics. If you know how to design any circuit & logic behind it then you can do any innovation with your creative ideas.
You might be surprised at what you can design – you just have to have a ‘problem’ to utilize your knowledge. Even with some basic knowledge you can do some pretty cool things. A lot can be done with some transistors, op amps and logic gates.
Circuit designing is the process of circuit design can cover systems ranging from simple power supply all the way up to the individual boards within an integrated circuit. For simple circuits the design process can often be done by one person without needing a planned or structured design process, but for more complex designs, teams of designers following a systematic approach with intelligently guided computer simulation are becoming increasingly common.
As circuit design is the process of working out the physical form that an electronic circuit will take, the result of the circuit design process is the instructions on how to construct the physical electronic circuit.This will normally take the form of blueprints describing the size, shape, connectors, etc in use, and artwork or CAM file for manufacturing a printed circuit board or Integrated circuit.
When designing a circuit, think about what you want it to achieve. Then how do you think the circuit will do this? Start simple. What power source will you be using? A 9V battery? Sketch it down.Then what? A status led? Draw that down, but remember it needs a resistor to ‘protect’ it. Does the circuit need to count for a certain amount of time after some sort of trigger? If so, think what you can use.
See how by taking little steps you can create your own circuit? It may not be a super-doper all-singing all-dancing circuit with a hundred ICs and crystals and Bluetooth and all that stuff, but it’s a circuit that you have made.
