Tell Me – What Are Active & Passive Components?

What Are Active & Passive Components?   If you are anything like me, I always seem to get confused on what Active & Passive components are. Let’s see if we can shed some light this and try to understand just what are Active & Passive components and what the differences are. Active Components: Those devices or […]

Tell Me – What Is Surface Mount Technology?

Surface mount devices (SMDs) are used in a growing number of commercial and industrial products. Due to their small size, prototype manufacturing, rework, and repair can be difficult and are best performed using specialized techniques specific to this technology. So, just what is surface mount technology? Follow along and we will try to explain AND […]

Tell Me – What Is A MOSFET?

The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET, MOS-FET, or MOS FET) is a type of transistor used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. They are very small, easy to manufacture and many MOS-FETS consume a small amount of power making them an excellent choice for many applications. It is the most common type of transistor available for […]

Fighter Jets – Lots Of Electronic Components

  Fighter jets indeed are loaded with all sorts of electronic components. You may know one or two electronic components, but for those who do not we will go through some basics of what is in a fighter jet.   A military aircraft designed entirely for air combat is considered to be a fighter aircraft. […]

Modern Warships – Full Of Electronic Components

Modern warships are full of electronic components. If they did not have all of this electronic equipment, the warships would not have the power that they have. Most of the equipment is designed for a marine environment and therefore must be waterproof and be small enough to fit inside the bridge. Listed below are some […]
