Electronics is a branch of physics and electrical engineering that deals with electrons' emission, behavior, and effects with electronic devices.
Electronics consists of a broad range of technology. Electronics were applied to the study of electrons and their behavior as observed in the first electron tubes. Today, many scientific and technical disciplines deal with different aspects of electronics.
Did you know?
Did you know that the theoretical and experimental studies of electricity during the 18th and 19th centuries led to the development of the first electrical machines and the beginning of the widespread use of electricity?
Did you know that the history of electronics began to evolve separately from that of electricity late in the 19th century with the identification of the electron by the English physicist Sir Joseph John Thomson and the measurement of its electric charge by the American physicist Robert A. Millikan in 1909?
Did you know components are parts from which electronic circuits are built? Every component responds to electricity differently. For example, capacitors block steady currents, while resistors let them through. By connecting up the right components, engineers can build anything from a door chime to a computer.
Did you know that electronics and the science of electricity both deal with electric current? But each focuses on a different use of current. Electricity deals with current mainly as a form of energy that can operate lights, motors, and other equipment. Electronics treats electric current chiefly as a means of carrying information. Currents that carry information are called signals.
Did you know that electronic devices are commonly used in a large number of applications that formerly relied on mechanical or electric systems for their operation? Examples are electronic controls in automatic cameras, electronic ignition systems in cars, and electronic control in domestic equipment, such as washing machines.
Electronics has an all-important role in a countryâ€™s development process today. Electronics plays a catalytic role in enhancing production and productivity in key sectors of the economy, whether it relates to infrastructure, process industries, communication, or even manpower training. High-tech areas today depend heavily on electronics.
