  • P–n junction
    (See also: p–n diode and Diode § Semiconductor diodes) A p–n junction is a boundary or interface between two types of semiconductor material, p-type and n-type, inside a single crystal of semiconductor.
  • Schottky diode
    The Schottky diode (named after German physicist Walter H. Schottky), also known as hot carrier diode, is a semiconductor diode formed by the junction of a semiconductor with a metal.
  • Transducer
    A transducer is a device that converts one form of energy to another.
  • Analog signal
    (For a broader coverage related to this topic, see Signal (electronics).) An analog signal is any continuous signal for which the time varying feature (variable) of the signal is a representation of some other time varying quantity, i.
  • Battery (electricity)
    An electric battery is a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells with external connections provided to power electrical devices such as flashlights, smartphones, and electric cars.
  • Electrical resistivity and conductivity
    Electrical resistivity (also known as resistivity, specific electrical resistance, or volume resistivity) is an intrinsic property that quantifies how strongly a given material opposes the flow of electric current.
  • Electronic oscillator
    An electronic oscillator is an electronic circuit that produces a periodic, oscillating electronic signal, often a sine wave or a square wave.
  • Mechatronics
    Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering.
  • Microcontroller
    A microcontroller (or MCU, short for microcontroller unit) is a small computer (SoC) on a single integrated circuit containing a processor core, memory, and programmable input/output peripherals.
  • Ohm's law
    Ohm's law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the voltage across the two points.
  • Operational amplifier
    An operational amplifier (often op-amp or opamp) is a DC-coupled high-gain electronic voltage amplifier with a differential input and, usually, a single-ended output.
  • Solid-state electronics
    Solid-state electronics are those circuits or devices built entirely from solid materials and in which the electrons, or other charge carriers, are confined entirely within the solid material.
  • Beat (acoustics)
    In acoustics, a beat is an interference pattern between two sounds of slightly different frequencies, perceived as a periodic variation in volume whose rate is the difference of the two frequencies.
  • Ground (electricity)
    In electrical engineering, ground or earth is the reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are measured, a common return path for electric current, or a direct physical connection to the Earth.
  • Hysteresis
    Hysteresis is the time-based dependence of a system's output on present and past inputs.
  • Microelectronics
    Microelectronics is a subfield of electronics.
  • Frequency mixer
    In electronics, a mixer, or frequency mixer, is a nonlinear electrical circuit that creates new frequencies from two signals applied to it.
  • High impedance
    In electronics, high impedance means that a point in a circuit (a node) allows a relatively small amount of current through, per unit of applied voltage at that point.
  • Printed electronics
    Printed electronics is a set of printing methods used to create electrical devices on various substrates.
  • Voltage regulator
    A voltage regulator is designed to automatically maintain a constant voltage level.
  • Magnetic amplifier
    The magnetic amplifier (colloquially known as a "mag amp") is an electromagnetic device for amplifying electrical signals.
  • Outline of electronics
    The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to electronics: Electronics – branch of physics, engineering and technology dealing with electrical circuits that involve active semiconductor components and associated passive interconnection technologies.
  • Noise (electronics)
    In electronics, noise is a random fluctuation in an electrical signal, a characteristic of all electronic circuits.
