Operational amplifier (Op-amp)

Operational amplifier (Op-amp)

Operational Amplifier (op-amp) An operational amplifier or op-amp is basically a multistage, very high gain amplifier having very high input impedance (typically a few Mega ohms) and low output impedance(Less than 100 ohms) and has the capability to amplifying signals of frequency ranging from zero HZ to 1MZ. Opamp is basically a multistage, direct-coupled, negative feedback amplifier that uses voltage […]

PIN diode Working, Structure and Application

PIN diode Working, Structure and Application

PIN diode What is PIN diode A PIN diode is one type of diode in which a wide undoped (pure form),  intrinsic semiconductor region placed between (sandwiched) a P-type and N-type semiconductor region. This intrinsic semiconductor layer has high resistivity. The high resistive layer of the intrinsic region provides the large electric field between the P and N-region. It differs […]

AC vs DC

AC vs DC

difference between ac and dc AC vs DC   AC DC 1 AC means alternating current DC means direct current 2 AC current reverses its direction periodically. AC alternates its direction within a circuit over time DC current flows in only one direction. DC does not change across time. 3 The magnitude of the current vary with time AC current […]

What is DIAC

What is DIAC

What is DIAC Diac is a device of the thyristor family. DIAC means Diode Alternating current. Diode + Alternating current. This is a type of diode that works in both reverse and forward bias. This diode work on the complete cycle of AC means this work during a positive half-cycle and also during a negative half cycle of the AC […]

kirchhoff’s law

kirchhoff’s law Kirchhoff’s voltage law (KVL) According to Kirchoff’s Voltage Law (KVL), In any closed circuit or mesh, the algebraic sum of all the emf (voltage source ) and all the voltage drops will zero. This Law deals according to the principle of conservation of energy, and according to the principle of conservation of energy Net energy supplied must be […]
