Types of Electronic Components
These are of 2 types: Passive and Active Components. Both these types of components can be either Through-Hole or SMD.
1. Passive Components
These components are those that do not have gain or directionality. They are also called Electrical elements or electrical components. Example: Resistors, Capacitors, Diodes, Inductors.
2. Active Components
These components are those that have gain or directionality. Example: Transistors, Integrated Circuits or ICs, Logic Gates.
1.Terminals and Connectors: Components to make electrical connection.
2.Resistors: Components used to resist current.
3.Switches: Components that may be made to either conduct (closed) or not (open).
4.Capacitors: Components that store electrical charge in an electrical field.
5.Magnetic or Inductive Components: These are Electrical components that use magnetism. 6.Network Components: Components that use more than 1 type of Passive Component. 7.Piezoelectric devices, crystals, resonators: Passive components that use piezoelectric. effect. 8.Semiconductors: Electronic control parts with no moving parts.
9.Diodes: Components that conduct electricity in only one direction.
10.Transistors: A semiconductor device capable of amplification.
11.Integrated Circuits or ICs: A microelectronic computer circuit incorporated into a chip or semiconductor; a whole system rather than a single component.
