About the Author

Walter Ditch

I am from Sunderland, in the North East of England, where I live with my wife and family.

The Electronics and Micros website was created in late 2012 as a personal project, with the intention of providing a free web-based educational resource for enthusiasts and students of electronics, microprocessors, and related technologies, wherever they may be.

The site also allows me to develop and publish individual projects in related areas. The first of these is the plcLib software library, launched in 2013, which allows low cost and open source Arduino hardware to operate as a simple programmable logic controller (PLC).

Other Publications

I have written several books, articles and reports over the last 20 years, as shown below.
