A whole series of new electronic devices developed after the discovery of the semiconductor.
Learn here the properties of these devices, their applications and possibilities.
Diodes allow current to pass in one direction.
In the other direction, they act as insulators.
Diodes also have other properties.
Here you get to know diodes, their characteristics and applications.
Transistors are used as amplifiers or switches
and miniaturized they are the basis of modern computers.
Learn here how transistors work and where in electronics they are used.
Thyristors are semiconductor devices.
In the initial state non-conductive,
they can be turned on and off by an electric current.
Here you discover how thyristors are connected
and where and how they are used.
