Books from the Tandy Corporation, owners of Radio Shack and creators of TRS- 80, Coco, and other computers. RADIOSHACK ELECTRONICS LEARNING LAB workbook 1. BASIC ELECTRONICS,. TRANSISTORS AND integrated cIRCUITS. BY Forrest M. MIms III. Alibris has new & used books by Radio Shack, including hardcovers, softcovers, rare, out-of-print first editions, signed copies, and more.

Have to keep things in scale, have to hold to your vision. Brian and I had known each other for years. We first worked together in starting PictureTel, a pioneer in creating the hyper-efficient video compression techniques that are still a driving force of the Internet. When, a few years later, we decided to form Polycom, it was to build things that let people communicate not only with video, but however they wanted. The Polycom process circa As startups do, we had a lot of ideas. Sign up to get Backchannel's weekly newsletter. We knew that creating a compact, powerful, yet distortion-free loudspeaker would be essential for the top performance we needed. But we also knew that designing that speaker was going to be an enormous challenge, because it needed to deliver exceptional sound from a very cramped space in a way that had not been done before. And there we were, standing in that inspirational stomping ground called RadioShack at the very time we needed a breakthrough in our loudspeaker strategy. And I spotted a little book on the shelf. Because it supported the soul of Silicon Valley, the generations of tinkerers and builders who started small. And big things come from small packages.

Yes, software tools. Because another key to flawless operation was the mesh of algorithms that cancelled echoes and prevented feedback, allowing both sides of a phone call to talk at the same time when nested inside that intricate acoustical design.

If it was quiet enough, we could approximate an audio test; if not, there was always 2 a.

For the design itself, we recruited a gifted industrial design firm with whom we had worked at PictureTel, James Bleck Associates. Given a set of specific physical requirements, they came up with over a dozen concept sketches I still have those workups , and we worked with them to evolve one of those sketches into what became the iconic SoundStation.

It was only another small thing, that sketch, but it was so powerful it became the symbol of the company for a while. Early concept sketches for the original Polycom SoundStation. Courtesy of Polycom You can ignore a lot of these details; the takeaway is that every answer and development revolved around starting smaller, not bigger.

The original Polycom SoundStation from In the years following, we continued developing things that let people collaborate in all the ways they wanted: next was graphics and content, and then video, and then a network that was smart about video.

Each one was built in small steps, either directly or, in a few cases, by joining forces with another company ViaVideo , the historic innovator PictureTel , and a few others that had gone through those small steps themselves and brought that fruit to the table. Today, more than five million people in more than , companies and institutions worldwide defy distance with secure video, voice and content with Polycom.

Not a bad payoff for a 95 cent investment. Left to Right: Jacob Morgan Workplace of the Future expert and Jeffrey Rodman conferencing in the round with the latest Polycom video conferencing gear.

Mims rose to the challenge, hand-inking each page painstakingly on Mylar sheets. Illustrations and schematics were likewise hand drawn, and all by Mims himself.

The later Mini-notebook series were produced using similar techniques, although this time mercifully with a mechanical pencil. Each volume took about three weeks to produce, including designing each circuit and building it four times to make sure it worked. The numbers are a testament to not only the content and the style of the books, but to the way in which Mims presented the subject matter — simple building blocks, easily understood as units, and moreover, easily built on a breadboard.
