electronics: ohms law / units of measure / power / potential dividers

  • Revision aid for use in KS4 or KS5 electronic products an introduction to ohms law, potential dividers & calculating power.

Circuit wizard tutorials

  • Two tutorials for beginners starting to use Circuit Wizard 1. This resource goes through schematic entry and simulation 2; also goes through manual PCB creation
