Diodes, Types and Functions in Electronic Circuits

By | September 7, 2021

Diode (Diode) is a component made of semiconductor material and has a function to conduct electric current in one direction but inhibit electric current from the opposite direction. Because of its properties that can conduct electric current in one direction (forward bias) and inhibit electric current from the opposite direction (reverse bias), diodes are often… Read More »

Inductors, Functions and Types

By | September 5, 2021

Inductors are electronic components that are widely used, especially in signal and frequency processing circuits, whose currents and voltages vary. An inductor has an inductance, but no resistance/capacitance and does not dissipate the power/field of an inductor that can produce an electric voltage directly proportional to the instantaneous change in the electric current flowing through… Read More »

Capacitor, Functions and Types

By | September 4, 2021

Capacitors are the most widely used passive electronic components in circuits after resistors. Capacitors are passive electronic components that can store electric current for a certain period of time. Capacitors are like batteries, but with a lower charge-holding capacity. The inventor of the Capacitor is Michael Faraday, an Englishman. His name was then used in… Read More »

Definition, Works and Functions of Microprocessor

By | August 15, 2021

Definition of Microprocessor The microprocessor is a chip (IC = Integrated Circuits) which contains an ALU (Arithmetic-Logic Unit) circuit, a CU (Control Unit) circuit and a collection of registers. The microprocessor is also called the CPU (Central Processing Unit) which is used as the brain/main processor in a computer system. The microprocessor contains combinational logic… Read More »

By | August 14, 2021

Definition of Microcontroller Microcontroller is a mini computer device (micro) which is packaged in a single chip IC (Integrated Circuit) and has a certain operating program in it. The components on this microcontroller are almost similar to a Personal Computer (PC). The microcontroller in addition to having a Central Processing Unit (CPU), is also equipped… Read More »

Basic Principles of Op-Amp (Operational Amplifier)

By | August 13, 2021

Definition of Op-Amp (Operational Amplifier) Operational Amplifier (Op-Amp) is a form of linear IC that functions as an electrical signal amplifier. An Op-Amp consists of several Transistors, Diodes, Resistors and Capacitors which are interconnected and integrated so as to enable it to produce high Gain (gain) over a wide frequency range. In Indonesian, the Op-Amp… Read More »

Introducing Digital to Analog Converters (DACs), DACs Functions, Circuits and How DACs Work

By | August 13, 2021

Definition of Digital to Analog Converters (DACs) Digital to Analog Converters (DACs) is a device for converting a digital input which is generally in binary form into an analog input/signal which is generally in the form of current, voltage or electric charge. In addition, DACs are a link between digital circuits and analog circuits. Digital… Read More »

Introduction to Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) and How ADCs Works

By | August 12, 2021

Introduction to Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) are circuits that convert continuous (analog) voltage values ​​into binary (digital) values ​​that can be processed by digital devices so that they can function as digital computing. With another definition, that this Analog to Digital Converter allows Digital circuits to interact with the… Read More »

FLIP-FLOP In Digital Systems

Flip-flops are asynchronous bistable components. The term asynchronous means that the output will change state only if there is a trigger on the clock input. The internal circuit of a flip-flop consists of several logic gates, while the logic gate consists of basic components such as transistors, resistors and diodes. In a computer system, the… Read More »
