To get started you must have your own stuff, it will cost a little but that’s the only way to learn Electronics :p well I bet you it wont exceed 1500 rupees.
First of all you must need a work bench 😉 a desk which should be entirely dedicated to this project stuff 😉
Resistors: Simply buy a Resistor sheet, but make sure it has 1M ohm, because mine did not had just that one :S..
Variable Resistors: For Breadboard purpose it is better to buy standard size as shown. You will need 10k, 100k and 1M. Buy vertical mounted and horizontal mounted too.
LDRs: There are only two types you will find one will be larger and another will be smaller buy both 5 of each
10nF, 100nF & 100pF (5 of each)
0.01µF and 0.1µF (10 of each)
1µF 63V, 2.2mF, 10µF 25V, 22mF and 100µF 25V (10 of each);
220µF 25V and 470µF 25V (3 of each).
1N4148 signal diode &1N4001 rectifier diode 5 of each.
White, Yellow and Green (4 of each)
5-9 volt buzzer x (5)
BC108, BC547 & BC337 (5 of each)
ICs: Buy DIL sockets if youre looking forward for solding the circuits.
D313 Voltage Regulator
7805 Volatage Regulator x (2)
555 Timer IC x (5)
LM741 Comparator op-amp x (4)
4017 x (3)
74LS47 x (2)
Switches: Switches are not essential for breadboard circuits because you can make or break links with pieces of wire. The on/off switch from soldered projects can also be omitted if you are willing to unclip the battery instead. Push switches and toggle or on/off switches (few of each)
Battery Clips: Buy at least 3 and if your looking forward to make circuits on varow board and do soldering then buy at least 10
Hard Wires: Buy as much as you can :p and must buy the good quality and colour ful hard wires 😉 black and red are must !!!
Solder: Buy a simple one, it will cost like 250ish, and must buy it’s stand it will be very helpful and off course you are not gonna forget buying the solding wire :p
Digital Multi-meter: I bought a simple one for 250Rs
Strip Board/Varrow board: Buy 3 big ones if you have normal sizes then buy at least 10
Voltage Source: you need two sources 9V and 5V. At least three 9v batteries Power Plus brand & 9 1.5 Cells
At least three 9v batteries Power Plus brand 😉
and unfortunately there is no 5v battery, or just connect 3 Alkaline cells(Toshiba & 555) each is 1.5 so three cells will give 4.5v which will work fine 😉
or just simply buy AC/DC Adapter its really cool, it has all voltage levels from 1.5-9, you can also avoid buying this adapter.
and Bread Board, offc!!
