Making A Zener Diode/Resistor Voltage Regulator

Here is a cool article on using a zener diode and resistor to make a simple voltage regulator. This is a basic shunt regulator. Click here to read the full article.


Power Supplies

Every electronics technician definitely needs to understand how power supplies work. Many times failures with electronics equipment will be in the power supply circuits and you need to understand the circuits well to be able to trouble shoot them properly.Click here to read an introduction into power supplies.
