Sequential Circuits

What are Sequential Circuits? Sequential circuits are a type of logic circuit whose output value depends on the latest inputs as well as on conditional previous inputs. Thus, these are given the name sequential as a series of inputs decide the output. Due to the involvement of previous inputs, memory elements are required. These memory […]


What is Electronics? Electronics is known to be the branch of engineering that deals with the study of nature exhibited by electrons under the action of the applied electric field. Electronics is the derivation of electron mechanics. More simply, we can say electronics is the combination of physics, engineering, technology, and applications dealing with the […]

Digital Electronics

What is Digital Electronics? A field of electronics that deals with the study of digital signals as well as the devices using which digital signals are generated is referred to as Digital Electronics. One of the crucial components of digital electronics circuits is logic gates. Digital electronics is originated from the word digitization, which corresponds […]

Number System

What is Number System? In digital electronics, a number system or system of numeration, allows the information or values to be represented in the form of digits. Basically, the number system helps in representing the data within a digital computer. In order to understand any number system, base or radix is very much important as […]

Photovoltaic System and Its Components

The photovoltaic system, which is also referred to as  PV system or solar power system is a system that converts incident solar energy/ sunlight into usable electric power. In our today’s content, we will talk about the photovoltaic system and its components. Introduction Increasing global warming concerns and energy security issues have made solar energy […]

Secondary Emission

What is Secondary Emission? The phenomena of emission of electrons from the surface of solid metallic material by the action of a stream of charged particles is known as secondary emission or secondary electron emission. Caesium oxide is regarded as an excellent target material that holds the ability to release 10 times more current of […]

Thermionic Emission

What is Thermionic Emission? Thermionic emission is a single term that describes an act of liberation of ions when thermal agitation is provided. The combination of the words thermionic and emission to form a single term is used to describe the release of subatomic particles (specifically electrons) by the action of heat. This is so […]

Diffusion Current

What is Diffusion Current? The term ‘diffusion’ signifies a process in which there is a motion of molecules of substance from a region of higher concentration of lower concentration. Diffusion Current is defined as the current produced as a result of the motion of charged carriers due to the difference in concentration between two regions. […]

Drift Current

What is Drift Current? In a general sense, the term drift signifies motion or movement towards something. So, the use of the word “drift” with current corresponds to the generation of current due to some specific motion or movement. The drift current is defined as an electric current produced as a result of the motion […]
