Details Inside

I’ve taken to placing a schematic inside of electronic devices as build them. This was commonplace in consumer electronics up until the late seventies, but was replaced by the ubiquitous “no user serviceable parts inside” label. Utter bullshit. Anyhow, this simple technique keeps me from having to look things up, even though looking things up is usually very, very easy. In this particular case, it keeps me from having to log into an obscure and poorly managed Yahoo Group. Aaahhh.

  1. When I was a kid, every radio or TV you’d open would have the complete schematic; the entire circuit–which was all discrete components. (Here’s an example of a typical 4-transistor radio http://www.roetta.it/ik3hia/transistor/Transistors_diagrams/regency_mod_TR4.jpg )

    I thought large scale integration would be the end of tinkering and tweaking, but it didn’t seem to be the case; people are just doing it on a higher level.
