Laser Diode Headlights Make The New BMW i8

 Laser Diode Headlights   Yes, the Laser Diode Headlights are what make the new BMW i8. They really do. These are really cool headlights. Give me a moment please. I know, you are probably saying that this $135,000 car has a lot more than just headlights. First things first, though. What’s A Laser Diode? A […]

Electrical & Electronic Engineers – Must Have Apps!

I’m not sure but I would guess we would have to resort to using pencil and paper to figure out these calculations. Ohms Law calculations, Voltage calculations, Resistance calculations, Reactance Finder, Capacitor conversions, Current calculations, Resistivity, etc. It would take you a little while to figure these out with pencil and paper. Do you think you could […]

Tell Me – What Is A LED?

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a two-lead semiconductor light source. It is a basic pn-junction diode, which emits light when activated.] When a fitting voltage is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence, and the […]

Tell Me, What Are The Types Of Diodes?

Diodes are part of the electronic components that are used today and are widely used for a number of applications. The more popular types of diodes are described below. Diodes – A diode is a two-terminal electronic component with asymmetric conductance; it has low (ideally zero) resistance to current in one direction, and high (ideally infinite) resistance […]
