A component that changes the amplitude of a signal between input and output.
A (non-mechanical) circuit component that has gain or switches current flow, such as a diode,transistor, etc.
One which produces an effect (technical term ‘gain') of itself. A transistor is an active component.
a component that initiates communication with other components
a VisualWorks component whose widget is a View and has a Model and a Controller
Electronic components that can operate on an applied signal, such as transistors and diodes.
A component that provides gain or amplification such as transistor, integrated circuit, valve - such as a triode value. (See passive for opposite)
A component that provides gain or amplification such as transistor, op-amp, or integrated circuit.
A component which adds energy to the signal it passes, e.g., transistors, rectifiers, diode, amplifiers, oscillators, mechanical relays and almost all ICâ€™s.
An electronic component whose parametric characteristics change while operating on an applied signal.
circuit element that switches the flow of current or has gain. Example are: transistors, diodes, vacuum tubes, etc.
In electronics, an active component is one that can be used to provide gain in an electronic circuit.
