A comprehensive guide on ultrasonic sensors

ultrasonic sensors

Introduction to ultrasonic sensors Ultrasonic sensors are electronic devices that utilize sound waves to detect and measure distances or objects. These sensors work on the principle of emitting ultrasonic waves and measuring the time it takes for these waves to bounce back after hitting an object. The sound is inaudible to human hearing. The time … Read more

How Transistors work

Introduction to transistors Transistors are active electronic components that can be used for amplification or switching circuits. We would look in detail at how transistors work. We would be focused on BJTs The basic type of transistor is the bipolar junction transistor. Bipolar junction transistors (BJT) Bipolar junction transistor is similar to diodes. Diodes have … Read more

Easy take on operational amplifiers op amp and how they work

operational amplifier

Introduction to operational amplifiers An operational amplifier also referred to as an op amp is a high gain DC voltage amplifier, meaning it can use a very small voltage difference between its input to control a much larger voltage at its output usually 100 thousands of times larger. operational amplifiers come in different package types … Read more
