Topics pertaining to components such as capacitors, resistors, diodes and switches


  • Capacitors - formerly known as a condenser, a passive two terminal electrical component used to store energy in an electric field. All contain at least two electrical conductors separated by a dielectric
  • Coils - the twirling of a conductor wound around a core to form an inductor or electromagnet
  • Component architectures - the design and layout of devices such as inductors, capacitors, and diodes
  • Connectors - devices that join electrical circuits together as an interface
  • Diodes - a two-terminal electronic component with a nonlinear current-voltage characteristic
  • Electrodes - an electrical conductor used to make contact with a nonmetallic part of the circuit
  • Fuses - an electrical protection device, designed to fail when current becomes too powerful
  • Inductors - also called reactors or coils, a passive two-terminal electrical component used to store energy in a magnetic field
  • Resistors - a passive, two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance
  • Switches - a component that can break an electrical circuit by blocking or diverting the current
  • Transducers - a component which converts one type of energy into another, usually for measurement or information transfer
  • Triodes - an electronic amplification device having three active electrodes
