Electronic Components and Mechanical Components

There are various essential electronic components that are utilized for building electronic circuits. Without these components, circuit plans are rarely finished or didn’t work well. These components incorporate resistors, diodes, capacitors, coordinated circuits, etc. A portion of these components comprise of at least two terminals that are patched to circuit sheets. Some might be grouped to make an electonic circuits in which all sorts of semiconductor gadgets can be incorporated.

Basic Electronics Components

Electronic components are fundamental discrete gadgets in any electronic framework to use in electronics in any case extraordinary related fields. These components are fundamental components that are utilized to plan electrical and electronic circuits. These components have at least two terminals which are utilized to interface with the circuit. The arrangement of electronic components should be possible dependent on applications like dynamic, aloof, and electromechanical.

In planning an electronic circuit following are mulled over:

  • Fundamental electronic components: capacitors, resistors, diodes, semiconductors, and so on.
  • Power sources: Signal generators and DC power supplies.
  • Estimation and examination instruments: Cathode Ray Oscilloscope (CRO),  multimeters, and so forth.

Classification of Electronic Components:

Electronic gadgets are part of our daily life. If you are as old as me, you might remember when you used to wait to use the phonebooth to contact your friend after witing them a letter and stating when you can have a chat. Nowadays, you can hardly function if you forgot your phone rushing to catch that train as we are always tethered to them 24 hours 7days a week.

Anyway, back to electronic components. They are classified into two groups namely:

  1. Active components

Active components supply current or energy in an electronic circuit and examples of these can be generators, alternators, diodes, transistor, voltage, MOSFET, Logic gates, and current sources.

What are active components?

Other examples of active components like amplifiers, vacuum tubes, and transistors will help us understand this basic electronic components. Active components tend to use external sources of power to add energy or power the circuit or system. In more simplistic terms, they control how electricity flows in a circuit.

Types of active components:

  • Integrated Circuits (All)
  • Processor
  • Power ICs
  • Digital Circuit
  • Analog Circuit
  • Ball Grid Arrays
  • Optoelectronic Components
  • Hall Effect Sensor
  • Current Sensor
  • LED / VFD / CRT / LCD / TFT
  • Rectifier Tubes
  • Vacuum Tubes
  • Battery & Power Supply
  • Electric Generator
  • Emitters
  • Gas discharge tube
  • Ignitron
  • Thyratron
  • Field-Effect Transistor (FET)
  • JFET (Junction Field-Effect Transistor)
  • MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor FET)
  • Diodes (All)
  • Rectifier Diode
  • Schottky Diode
  • Zener Diode
  • Unipolar / Bipolar Diode
  • Varicap
  • Varactor
  • Light-Emitting Diode (LED)
  • Transistors (All)
  • Photo Transistor
  • Darlington Transistor
  • Compound Transistor
  • Thyristors
  • Composit Transistors
  • Solar PV Cell, PV Panel
  • T flip flop & Logic circuit
  1. Passive components

These types of components receive the energy which it can store, dissipate in either a magnetic field or an electric field. You must have heard of resistors, inductors, transformers, and capacitors which are the most common examples of passive components.
