Atari 1980 guide to electronic game operation and servicing

by kevman3d » Sun May 03, 2015 2:07 pm

Ran across this the other day - Its Atari's 1980s guide book to maintaining arcade game machines. However it literally covers most of the basics of electronics - from equipment, soldering techniques, as well as going into understanding IC's and more. It says its not designed to help people become electronic engineers (obviously) but it is a lot more accessible to lesser experienced people (ie. me) with some very basic understanding of things.

Its oddly enough called "The Book". Mark fixes stuff placed a PDF scan of the 186 pages on his blog if you're interested.
