To get your planning and research started, we came up with a guide to help you find the best electronic components at a reasonable price. Our team will help to set you on the right path to choosing the best electronic components, as having a good idea of what you want can make your experience so much better.
These mentioned electronic components are only meant as a very simple introduction to some of the components you will encounter when building electronic circuits.
Resistor: a resistor will resist the current flow in an electric circuit. This is probably the most common electronic component of them all. Usually the resistor is used to set up the correct voltages in a circuit to make it work properly.
Capacitor: a capacitor is like a battery with very low capacity. It might for example be used to introduce a delay in a circuit.
Diode: a diode is a component that only conducts electricity in one direction. It is commonly used if you want to convert from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC). Other types of diodes include Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Zener diode.
Transistor: a transistor is similar to a relay in the sense that you can use it to turn on and off a current. The transistor is what makes amplifiers work.
Integrated Circuit (IC): an integrated circuit is a circuit made up of several tiny components and placed in a small package. It could be anything from a microcontroller to a radar system.
Relay: a relay is a switch that can be controlled electrically. If you connect power to the relay, the switch opens. If you disconnect the power, the switch closes. (Or vice versa).
Inductor: an inductors are strange components made up of wire in a coil. They don’t like high frequencies. It is a little bit difficult to understand what they do without knowing a bit more theory. I have written a more elaborate article called.
Crystal: a crystal oscillator is a component used to create a precise frequency for example as a clock for a microcontroller.
