Assembly a combination of two or more parts or sub-components to form an assembly.
One of the items forming part of an electrical circuit, either passive or active.
A separate part of a printed board assembly which performs a circuit function. Active devices, such as resistors, capacitors, or semiconductors, have distinct electrical characteristics that perform specific functions in a circuit and with terminals which may be inserted into or mounted on, a printing wiring board to form a printed wiring assembly. connector
An electronic device, typically a resistor, capacitor, inductor, or integrated circuit (IC), that is mounted to the circuit board and performs a specific electrical function.
A diversely used term, which, dependent on context, may mean active or passive element, device, integrated or functional circuit, functional unit , or part of an operating system.
any electronic device such as coil, resistor, capacitor, transistor, integrated circuit, or diode that has distinct electrical characteristics and terminals for connecting it to other components to form a circuit.
An individual functional element in a physically independent body that cannot be further divided without destroying its function. Examples: transistors, ICs, capacitors, resistors, etc.
An element of equipment which unto itself does not form a system. Components can be semiconductors, resistors, etc.
An Item such as a resistor, diode, transistor, integrated circuit and hybrid.
Any object an electrical signal encounters in a circuit. Used interchangeably with the term device, all components are either active or passive.
