Electronics projects for digital and analog applications. Note that since this book was written by a Swede, the components used in the book are decidedly European such as using Lenz decoders, Marklin-related topics, etc. However, since these projects are fairly advanced (i.e. building your own DCC-compatible decoders), with some creativity they can be adapted to other DCC systems. This is definitely not a beginner's book.
