The diode is a unique circuit element that has on/off switching capabilities. This lesson will explain what a diode is and how it is most commonly used.
The first element of electronics is electricity. This lesson will explain the three elements of electricity: Voltage, Current, and Wattage. It will also detail how they are used in electronics.
The most famous circuit element is called the transistor. This lesson will explain the switching and amplifying properties of the transistor as they are used today.
The resistor is the first building block of electronic design. This lesson will cover the purpose of resistors and introduce a fundamental tool called Ohm's Law.
The operational-amplifier (Op-Amp) offers a major breakthrough for analog computation and control. This lesson will introduce the Op-Amp and some of its properties and uses.
The capacitor is the second building block of electronic design. This lesson will explain the electrical charging properties of capacitors and how they are used.
The 555 Timer is a symbol of the digital age. This lesson will introduce the 555 timer and describe its many uses for producing electrical signals and pulses.
The inductor is the third building block of electronic design. This lesson will describe the magnetic charging properties of inductors and how they are used in circuits.
Documenting your work properly is a necessity for any designer. This lesson will explain how electrical schematics are drawn and also take a look at what datasheets are.
