Elecronics components explained for beginners

NewImage

Christopher Pitt made a great post over on Medium explaining components for beginners. It’s cute and informative- a great teaching tool!

I’m about to attend the first meet-up of a local Nodebots group, and I thought it would be a good time to brush up on some basics. If you’re new to building robots, then this should serve as a good start!

The research for this post comes from multiple sources, but particularly http://node-ardx.org and Wikipedia.

This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list. These are just a few of the common components newcomers are faced with, and they can be tricky to work with, at first.
