How the capacitor and the resistor work – their relationship

The capacitor and the resistor are the two basic components that are required for the electronic circuit which can provide current to the electronic devices so that they run and work. When an electronic device performs, it is run by the electric flow – this is the simple theory that is known to everyone. However, the entire process is a matter of electron flow and involves a detailed technique.

What is a capacitor?

To simply describe what a capacitor is, it must be stated that a capacitor is a component, which essentially an electronic one and stores electric charge. This electronic component is made up of two plates that are also known as conductors and a dielectric material separates these two plates. The two plates or the conductors of the capacitor accumulate electric charge when it is connected to an electronic source. Thus, one plate holds a positive charge and the other plate holds a negative charge.

What is a resistor?

A resistor on the other hand is, as the name suggests, a resistor of the electricity flow. When the electricity flows through the capacitor or rather the electronic device, the resistor’s task is to resist or stop the electricity from flowing down. This task of resisting the electricity is known as the resistance and as the electricity faces resistance, it gets transformed into different forms to get released from this resistance. Thus, when electricity is passed through an electric bulb and gets resisted by the resistor, it gets released in an entirely different form of energy – that is, it gets transformed from electric energy to light energy and heat energy. Thus we see the bulb become illuminated.

How do the capacitor and the resistor work along with each other?

its importance and benefits – an intro to the computer industry 2

Whether you run a business or a bank or even a huge industry, you will need the assistance of the computers. The reason is that the computer is the only device that can keep the records of the work, can recognize the difficulties with the work, and come up with solutions for those problems. Even when you depend on computers, you do not have to depend on human beings. This increases the accuracy of the work and decreases the involvement of time.

Although the invention of the computers dates back to the mid-19th century when Charles Babbage invented a giant machine that could calculate large integers, the modern computers have gone far beyond that and have become almost interactive. So, now when you come up with a problem, the computer will instantly offer you a solution.

What are the benefits of the computer industry?
Previously, industries had to stay dependent on the man powers. If there was any shortage of the supply with the human resources or if the quality of the workers were not up to the mark, the business had to suffer a lot. But with the discovery of the computers and the availability of the computer industry has made the businesses reach such a height that could only be dreamed of.

• Computers can keep a track record of the raw materials that are used, the stocks of the materials, and also a detailed record of the manufactured goods in your business. Even if there is anything confidential that has a risk of being stolen, like the formulas that are used in the business, then the computers can perform the task of a locker.

• The computer industry itself is a huge industry that involves too many engineers and runs a huge industry providing a good degree of opportunity for work.

• There is no doubt that computer industry can reduce the human labor and increase the accuracy of the task.

Which industries depend on the computer industry?
There is no one industry that does not need the assistance of the computers. From education to infrastructure, from construction to business, computer industry has a huge work area that cannot be run without computers.

All about the Semiconductor Industry 2

Continue from the previous article.

But the most prominent development in the world went all the way through in South Korea, which became the modest producer in 1980s and come out to the notable place of the third largest manufacturer only after Japan, and the United States.

As result the country became an important player in the world of the semiconductor industry. However there are a number of newly emerged production centers today like Utah “Silicon Valley”, Oregon and Colorado. The growth of the semiconductor industry was very powerful. The sales of the semiconductor in the global market of the industry tripled in every five years. And the biggest user of the chips is the computer industry, as about 60 per cent of the semiconductors sold are incorporated in computers.

Different Types of Semiconductors
Based on the pattern and demand semiconductors are classified into six major types and they are Standard devices-this type of semiconductor were used in a wide variety of ways, Exclusive devices-these are chiefly the similar to other standardized devices however they only differ with the devices as they have technological monopoly on the particular semiconductors and thus can only be produced by a couple of producers, Specific devices: these are also heap produced but can only be used in a definite way,

Custom devices: these are produced for a definite user and according to the user requisites, Microprocessors-they are produced in mass, but are programmed for specific purposes only, Semicustom devices- certain parts of these types of semiconductors are produced mass and are arranged according to the necessities of the user.

The impact of the semiconductor industry on the business world and on our day by day life has been the greatest. It went through enormously fast development. Its research and production development is among the expensive ones. This industry will probably be the main industries of the future.

All about the Semiconductor Industry

Semiconductor devices such as transistors, diodes and integrated circuits are found everywhere that are used in our daily lives like in televisions, Walkman, automobiles, computers and washing machines. The whole world has come to depend on them and more and more people have come to expect superior performance at lower cost. During this short span of time the semiconductor industry has gone through a development that was never seen before. Although the industry today is very huge, with billions of dollars spend in only its Research and Development (R&D). Its great significance in the daily life is the cause why to a greater extent governments are inclined to be involved in it, for the reason that if they don’t than it will upset the whole domestic economy.

The Growth of the Semiconductor Industry
The growth and development of production of semiconductors in the history has been a real inspiring one. Its production started to double every single year after Twenty years after its invention. The production of the semiconductors was started in the United States, where they were invented. In fact it was U.S only which dominated the worldwide production of the semiconductors until the 1970’s. However later Japan overtook this very respectable title of being the number one semiconductors producer in the world.

Low Power Circuit Design 2

Advantages of Low power Circuit Design

Low power circuit Design has many advantages especially in reducing the power consumption. Reduced power consumption brings many advantages with it even for non-battery-powered products like higher performance because of lower temperatures, reduced cost because of cheaper packaging etc. As reduced power consumption leads to lower system cost because in these systems no fans are required or cheaper air conditioning for telecom center becomes sufficient. Low power systems are usually smaller and cheaper to manufacture as they have smaller power supplies, smaller heat, smaller batteries sinks and no cooling fans. This design allows attaining high levels of accuracy with lower power dissipation as well.

Reducing power loss
The main advantage of the low power circuit design is helps in reducing the power loss. The low power circuit uses the dual supply voltages to supply speed on critical parts of the circuit and lower power on non-critical paths as a result Loss from sub threshold can be lowered down by raising the threshold voltage and decreasing the supply voltage. In fact many circuits use different transistors with different threshold voltages in different parts of the circuit to reduce the power consumption with no significant performance loss. Among the other method used for static power consumption is power gating.

Low Power Circuit Design- A Power Reducing Measure

Today power consumption is a key limitation in many electronic systems ranging from desktop computing to mobile telecom particularly when moving to nanometer technologies. Reduction of dynamic power consumption is a concern for almost all IC products today. Consequently, new design techniques and methodologies are needed to control and limit power consumption. As a result low power circuit designs were made. Low-power circuit design is made to use less electric power. For battery-powered products, Low-power circuit design will reduce power consumption directly results in longer operating time for the product, which is a very attractive quality.

The Use of Multimeter 2

To Measure Currents:

A multimeter specifically a digital multimeter can work as an ammeter when placed in chain with electrical component or current flowing wire. When it is brought into play as an ammeter, the digital multimeter will have nearly a negligible resistance, resulting in a very small voltage drop across the multimeter leads. Also there are various digital multimeters which are competent of testing both AC and DC currents.


To Measure Resistance:
Multimeter is also used as an ohmmeter to evaluate the resistance of an electrical component. The terminals are fixed across the electrical element, whose resistance is to be measured. On switching on the digital multimeter develops a minute known voltage flanked by its terminals and the resistor is connected across these terminals a current will start to flow, which can be calculated using Ohm’s Law. There are some digital multimeters existing in the market which are used to measure both 2-wire and 4-wire resistance measurements.

For Measuring Continuity and Frequency:
Multimeter are the great option to measure connection between two points of a circuit and to track circuit breaks. The multimeters, have a continuity setting that shows the flow of current between the points. There are also many places where a multimeter can also be used to measure some of the crucial parameter of electrical devices like measuring the frequency. This is done by joining the positive terminal to the electrical component with the signal and the negative lead to ground.

A Few Significant Advantages of Integrated Circuits

An integrated circuit which is commonly referred as IC is a set of electronic circuits. They are often called as miniaturized electronic circuit as they contains several semiconductor devices with passive components bonded on a small plate or circuit board generally made of Silicon. This entire arrangement is also termed as a hybrid integrated circuit or monolithic integrated circuit.

The IC manufacturing took place after years of experimental discoveries. The semiconductor technology became tremendously advanced in the mid-20th century and from that time onwards the integrated circuits started developing in mass controlling the reliability, capability, and building-block approach to circuit design at the time of manufacturing.

Advantages of Integrated Circuits
Integrated circuits have many advantages like they are superior quality, easy to replacement, low weighed, low-cost and small size. But on the broader perspective there are two main advantages of ICs – first is the cost of the device and second is the performance. Cost of manufacturing a single IC is very low as compared to the other circuits. The cause for this low-cost is the printing of chips and all their components.

A Temperature Measuring Device Using the Radiation – Infrared Thermometer 2

How does IR Thermometer work?
Infrared thermometers work according to the phenomenon of black body radiation. According to that phenomenon anything at a temperature exceeding absolute zero has the molecules within it that is moving around. When the temperature will increase the movement of the molecules will also fasten and will start to emit infrared radiation. As they will start getting hotter, they will emit more infrared and even start to emit visible light.
That is why heated metal can burn up red or even white. Infrared thermometers perceive and evaluate this radiation.
