What are passive components? How they are Classified?

passive electronics components

You have seen various types of electronics components they may be divided into two actives (click to know more) and passive. Here is a classification of passive components Definition: “The devices which can not control the flow of electrons by any other electrical signal are called passive components.” Resistors, capacitors, inductors, etc are passive components, they are reactive components. Passive components can be broadly divided into three types resistive, inductive and capacitive. Also, there are many devices and transducers which are passive. Also, read the classification of electronics components, and…

What are Active components electronics?

active electronic components

Definition of Active components : “Active components are those who has the ability to control flow of electrons either by using voltage or by using another current.” Voltage-controlled devices are MOSFETs, vacuum tubes, while current-controlled devices are bipolar junction transistors which allow one current to control another. Active components can be of different types like semiconductor there are various types of active devices like transistors, diodes, triodes, LEDs, plasma display battery etc. You should watch this video for better understanding here Semiconductors Transistors Active components: Transistors were invented in twentieth…
