Electrical components

Electrical components

  • ESP8266
    The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi chip with full TCP/IP stack and MCU (Micro Controller Unit) capability produced by Shanghai-based Chinese manufacturer, Espressif Systems.
  • Fuse (electrical)
    In electronics and electrical engineering, a fuse is a type of low resistance resistor that acts as a sacrificial device to provide overcurrent protection, of either the load or source circuit.
  • Switch
    In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can break an electrical circuit, interrupting the current or diverting it from one conductor to another.
  • Capacitor
    A capacitor (originally known as a condenser) is a passive two-terminal electrical component used to temporarily store electrical energy in an electric field.
  • Electronic component
    An electronic component is any basic discrete device or physical entity in an electronic system used to affect electrons or their associated fields.
  • Liquid-crystal display
    A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronic visual display that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals.
  • Resistor
    A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element.
  • Transistor
    A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify or switch electronic signals and electrical power.
  • Memristor
    A memristor (/ˈmɛmrᵻstər/; a portmanteau of memory resistor) is a hypothetical non-linear passive two-terminal electrical component relating electric charge and magnetic flux linkage.
  • Potentiometer
    A potentiometer, informally a pot, is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider.
  • Thermistor
    A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance is dependent on temperature, more so than in standard resistors.
  • Varistor
    A varistor is an electronic component with an electrical resistance that varies with the applied voltage.
  • Contactor
    A contactor is an electrically controlled switch used for switching an electrical power circuit, similar to a relay except with higher current ratings.
  • Opto-isolator
    In electronics, an opto-isolator, also called an optocoupler, photocoupler, or optical isolator, is a component that transfers electrical signals between two isolated circuits by using light.
  • Cavity magnetron
    The cavity magnetron is a high-powered vacuum tube that generates microwaves using the interaction of a stream of electrons with a magnetic field while moving past a series of open metal cavities (cavity resonators).
    TRIAC, from triode for alternating current, is a generic trademark for a three terminal electronic component that conducts current in either direction when triggered.
  • Supercapacitor
    A supercapacitor (SC) (sometimes ultracapacitor, formerly electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC)) is a high-capacity electrochemical capacitor with capacitance values much higher than other capacitors (but lower voltage limits) that bridge the gap between electrolytic capacitors and rechargeable batteries.
  • Crossbar latch
    The Crossbar Latch is a technology invented by Hewlett-Packard in October 2001, that HP claims could replace transistors in some applications.
  • Thermopile
    A thermopile is an electronic device that converts thermal energy into electrical energy.
  • Electromagnetic coil
    An electromagnetic coil is an electrical conductor such as a wire in the shape of a coil, spiral or helix.
  • Memistor
    A memistor is a nanoelectric circuitry element used in parallel computing memory technology.
  • Instabus
    Instabus, is a decentralized open system to manage and control electrical devices within a facility.
