Electronic E-Bytes: The Resistor Revolution

Welcome to the Electronic E-Bytes series, where we dive into a different topic for 5 minutes every week. This week, we’re focusing on resistors. According to Wikipedia, a resistor is defined this way: ”A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element.” Now that’s good, but it doesn’t elaborate much on the functions. That’s …

Electronic E-Bytes: The Diode Dilemma

Welcome to a series called Electronic E-Bytes, where we dive into a different topic for 5 minutes every week. This week, we’re focusing on the science behind diodes, and some ways to identify different types. According to Wikipedia, the definition of a diode is this: “A diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts current primarily in one direction; it …
