Electronic components are the basic elements in electronic circuits, usually individual packages, and have two or more leads or metal contacts. Electronic components must be connected to each other to form an electronic circuit with specific functions, such as amplifiers, radio receivers, oscillators, etc. One of the common ways to connect electronic components is soldering to a Printed Circuit Board. Electronic components may be individual packages (Resistors, Capacitors, inductors, transistors, Diodes, etc.), or groups of various complexity, such as integrated circuits (operational amplifiers, exclusions, Logic Gates, etc.)
Various fields such as electronic components, devices, components, integrated circuits, and modules (including CPU, DSP, MCU, embedded system, PLD, FPGA, SoC, PSoC, various storage devices, amplifiers, comparators, filters, ADCs, DAC, interface devices, switches, power management devices, AC/DC, DC/DC, various Display devices, Display control and drive devices, sensors, optoelectronic devices, passive components and IGBT, MOSFETs and various discrete power devices, etc.
An active component is an electronic component that has gain or depends on the direction of current. In fact, it refers to electronic parts other than Resistors, Capacitors, and inductors (they are called “passive components”). Examples of active components such as transistors, silicon controlled rectifiers, vacuum tubes, etc.
Passive Components (Passive Components) is the name of certain electronic components in Taiwan’s electronics industry, which is different from Active Components. In mainland China, they are called passive devices and active devices.
