The performance parameters of every capacitor are different and thus their applications also differ accordingly. One of the electronic components’ forms which is used widely is the electronic capacitors. Apart from this, the other capacitors used in the industry include ceramic, silver mica, electrolytic, plastic, tantalum, and others.
Various types of Light Sensors are available in the market. One of the most common type & cost effective type of Light sensor is a Light Dependent Resistor abbreviated as LDR. A LDR is also called as photo resistor or photocell. It is basically a variable resistor whose resistance varies according to the light intensity falling on it. The resistance of the LDR can be few Mega Ohm’s (M?) in dark conditions, and in Light condition the resistance can be of several hundred ohm’s.
Every Electronic hobbyists have a dream of setting up his own lab at home to learn, explore, widen the knowledge and of course have fun with Electronics. But most of us don’t how to start setting up one and even if we did it will end up in a complete mess. So after going through several forums and asking the suggestions of pros i have prepared this article ” how to set up electronics lab at home ”, i hope this will be helpful for all budding Electronic Engineers and Hobbyist.
Using fiber optic cables as waveguides for transmitting light that is ultimately converted into voice calls or data has been a mainstay for the telecommunications industry for decades.
A breadboard is a solderless device for temporary prototype with electronics and test circuit designs. Most electronic components in electronic circuits can be interconnected by inserting their leads or terminals into the holes and then making connections through wires where appropriate. The breadboard has strips of metal underneath the board and connect the holes on the top of the board.
Researchers at Princeton University have observed a bizarre behavior in a strange new crystal that could hold the key for future electronic technologies. Unlike most materials in which electrons travel on the surface, in these new materials the electrons sink into the depths of the crystal through special conductive channels.
