Welcome to Starting Electronics!
The Starting Electronics website contains tutorials, projects, reviews and articles on electronics, embedded systems, microcontrollers, Arduino, tools and related topics. Here you will find information for hobbyists and beginners to advanced users.
Beginners start looking in the beginner's area. A good place to start learning about electronics is the Start Electronics Now! series of tutorials which is an introduction to hobby electronics / breadboard circuits and the Arduino microcontroller board.
The website is divided into a number of areas as found on the top horizontal menu. Each area contains articles and / or sub-areas. Areas and sub-areas can be navigated using the right vertical menu and will change to suit each area. Icons on the menu will tell you whether a link is to an area or article.
Articles (including tutorials, reviews, etc.) are shown by the document icon:

Learn VHDL for programming a CPLD. Build a CPLD board at home and follow the course.
Use the Arduino Ethernet shield and configure the Arduino as a web server.
Build circuits using the ATtiny2313 AVR microcontroller and learn how to program it.
The AT91SAM7S-EK evaluation board is designed for evaluating the AT91SAM7S range of 32-bit ARM7 microcontrollers from Atmel.
AT91SAM7S ARM7 microcontrollers have a built in boot loader program called SAM-BA that allows them to be programmed in-circuit via the USB port without the need for an external programmer.
AT91SAM7S microcontrollers have a dedicated ERASE pin that can be used to erase the on-chip Flash memory and lock bits.
