Passive electronic parts are components that do not require a power source to operate and can only control or store electrical signals. These parts typically use materials such as ceramic, plastic, or metal to manipulate the flow of electricity.
Examples of passive electronic parts include:
1.Resistors: These are components that resist the flow of electrical current. They are used in a wide range of electronic circuits to limit current, divide voltage, or control timing.
2.Capacitors: These are components that store electrical energy in an electric field. They are used in electronic circuits to smooth out voltage fluctuations, filter out noise, or block direct current.
3.Inductors: These are components that store electrical energy in a magnetic field. They are used in electronic circuits to filter out high-frequency noise, control current, or store energy.
4.Diodes: These are components that allow current to flow in one direction while blocking it in the other. They are used in electronic circuits as rectifiers, voltage regulators, and signal demodulators.
5.Transformers: These are components that transfer electrical energy from one circuit to another through electromagnetic induction. They are used in electronic circuits to step up or step down voltage, isolate circuits, or match impedance.
Overall, passive electronic parts are critical components of electronic circuits and are used to control, store, or filter electrical signals in a wide range of applications.
