OUTLET Double Barrel! AVR/Bascom Tutorial Kit or Electron Tubes Reference Book

The Elektor OUTLET website is in full swing attracting thousands of customers every week, usually after the deal of the week is announced on Thursdays and published through the E-weekly on Fridays. This week we’ve discounted two magnificent products!


Both offers valid Thursday, November 3, 12.00 CET through Thursday, November 10, 12.00 CET, strictly limited to stocks.


Elektor’s ultimate reference book on ‘tubed audio’ is called Fundamental Amplifier Techniques with Electron Tubes and it’s about as thick as your 12AX7 / ECC83 tube is tall! It’s a must-have for all tube fans and the growing circle of RAFs (retro-audio-aficionado’s). Just view the Contents page!

In a mind blowing 800+ pages author Rudolf Moers covers just about everything you need to know about the fundamentals of electron tubes and the way these wonderful devices were designed to function at their best in their best known application: the (now vintage) tube audio amplifier.

The aim of the book is to give the reader useful knowledge about electron tube technology in the application of audio amplifiers, including their power supplies, for the design and DIY construction of these electron tube amplifiers. This is much more than just building an electron tube amplifier from a schematic made from the design from someone else: not only academic theory for scientific evidence, but also a theoretical explanation of how the practice works. No modern simulations, but because you first have to understand the circuit calculations, then you can work with your hands to build the circuit and last, but not least, if you have a multimeter, a signal generator and an oscilloscope, you can measure the circuit parameters yourself to see that theory and practice are very close. This very aim and coverage makes the book a unique reference source.

The Bascom/AVR Tutorial Kit is an easy introduction to microcontroller technology, comprising

  • Bascom introductory course

  • Microcontroller programming using BASCOM-AVR

  • Pre-assembled development board with ATmega88 and USB chip

  • All hardware and software for programming and experimenting

  • Principles of microcontroller technology

  • Entry-level introductory course for BASCOM-AVR programming

  • 100 hands-on experiments

  • CD-ROM and 220-page manual


Experiments include: Power-up/down delay, Temperature switch, Capacitance meter, Min/max thermometer, School bell with RTC, Temperature logger, 8-channel digital voltmeter, Diode tester, Morse code decoder, Ventilation control, Data exchange between VB.NET and ATmega88, Frequency counter, Reading out GPS data, Sensor switch, State machine, Recording data, Digital storage, oscilloscope and many more.

All experiments operate using a free USB interface of your computer and do not put you or your computer at risk. An external power supply is not necessary!

Bascom enjoys increasing popularity among newcomers and professional developers and has become something of a Basic-standard for AVRs. Many problems that previously could only be solved in a time-consuming manner using Assembler or C, can now be tackled in no time with just a few instructions using this modern compiler. This tutorial kit teaches both microcontroller basics with the corresponding ICA applications and the use of the FTDI FT232RL USB-to-UART bridge chip.

Kit not suitable for children under 14 years.
