I ran across this link tonight and thought it might be helpful to some here. It is basically an online electronics course. I haven't gone through it but it looks like it might be useful on the surface.

I'd plus-rep for that, but I need to "spread it around" - I sent rep your way not too long ago. I have a long memory though. :)

Oh hell yeah. Just what I've been looking for. I love it when information is accurate, abundant, and free.

I added it to the link list. I'm glad it could be useful.

I just looked at the absolute encoder thing, and discovered that gray's code is used. Thought that was funny because I just learned about that in math a week or two ago.

Of course... the only section missing is the "Robotics" one...

That's because robotics isn't a subtree of electronics, it's more the other way around :p

But they have the section, its just the only one that has nothing in it...
and besides it has other stuff that aren't a "subtree" of electronics such as automation and pneumatics and sensors

Robotics is an interdiciplinary area. As you know (but others may not realize), robotics draws from electronics technology, mechanical design and construction, and pretty much any other area you can think of. I don't have problems with the electronics part, but the durned mechanical stuff frustrates me a lot of times. After several weeks of being away from tinkering, I am finally getting back into it all again.

I just finished building a 5DOF leg for a multipod. It will be feasible for a quadrapod, but might not be reasonable for a hexapod. I'm also starting to tinker with my Arduino and will be getting back to work on W.A.L.T.E.R. finally again (his arm is up to 10DOF now, but it will be oh soooooooooooooooooo flexible).

Great link, I already know more than I did when I registered at this forum!
