Without parallel circuits, our homes and electronic devices wouldn’t be able to function the way we require them to function. Parallel circuits keep the lights on in our homes and ensure that different appliances continue to work, even if other appliances are turned off. Parallel circuits are the standard circuits found in home electrical wiring and offer distinct advantages over other circuits.Read More
To many, global communication is something that is often taken for granted; and like many of the technologies that help to shape our world, there is a considerable gap between passing knowledge of the technology and how it actually works.
This article aims to shed some light on how resonant circuits work and how they have shaped the ways in which information is shared and consumed all over the globe.Read More
This article is intended to illustrate the steps required for creating a Norton equivalent circuit. All the concepts mentioned here build on the prior knowledge of simplifying circuits.
According to Norton's theorem, any two-terminal circuit, made up of fixed value resistances, of voltage sources, and of current sources, can be replaced by a single current source in parallel with a single resistance which will produce the same effects at the terminals.Read More
Loop current analysis or mesh analysis is an analytical method to determine the current flowing at different points in a closed circuit.Read More
Maybe you’ve heard of microprocessors before but want a refresher on what they’re all about. Or maybe you’re someone who is brand new to microprocessor programming and want a beginner’s overview. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.Read More
In this blog, we will review the bypass capacitor, its function, and how it is important in an amplifier circuit.
What is a Bypass Capacitor?
A bypass capacitor is added to an amplifier circuit in order to allow AC signals to bypass the emitter resistor. This effectively removes it from the output gain equation resulting in an increase to the amplifiers AC gain.Read More
Used in audio equipment, radio, TV, and computers amplifiers are components that increase or amplify the voltage, current or power of an electrical signal. Almost all electronic circuits and systems use at least one stage of amplification. As engineers and technicians, we should be able to identify different classes of amplifiers.Read More
