Examining Some Key Electronic Components
MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF ELECTRONIC components are available to you as an electronics hobbyist, and each has its own particular characteristics. This chapter introduces you to some of the common electronic components.
To build electronic devices, you connect components together in a particular way to create an electronic circuit like the one shown in the circuit diagram in Figure 3-1. This type of diagram is also sometimes called a schematic.
