Electronic components are parts that constitute a circuit. The term is vast and a number of parts fall under it. Electronic components have leads which when connected create a circuit. They can be classified into active components, passive components and electromechanical components. Active components get their power coming mostly from a DC circuit. Passive components work only on power supplied by an AC circuit. They are not used for amplification but are capable of increasing current/voltage. Electromechanical components use electromechanical or electrical connections for functioning.
On NCL, you will find a huge variety of electrical components that are required for making work electrical projects of different sizes. Our range includes LCDs, High Power LEDs, Capacitors, Resistors, Diodes, Quartz Crystal Oscillators, Quartz Crystal Resonators, and Front Panel Control Buttons.
It is one of the most common components and is a better option than CRT. A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen can be easily programmed to display characters, digits clearly. In fact, as per your project, you could use it to display animation and any other custom character. They are mostly preferred than other mediums because of their user friendliness and economical price. You will find the product in different dimensions, which define the item’s display capacity. For instance, for a LCD screen with 16 X 2-display capacity, you will get 16 characters in 2 lines.
High Power LEDs
They are beyond 0.20 watts and are widely used in a host of electronic projects. Their popularity has seen a sharp rise over the past 10 years ever since semiconductor technologies have permitted high power densities. LEDs are now the choice for modern projects because of their user-friendly size, which allows them to fit into smallest of the areas. Moreover, they are also an economical choice for most project coordinators. Their power consumption is low and longevity is high. They are also efficient and can provide exceptional service. For instance, their ability to turn off and turn on at a high speed makes them a good choice for big projects. They are differentiated on the bases of their colors or wavelengths, or CCT (Color Corrected Temperature).
You will need capacitors in both high levels as well as in basic projects. They are available in radial lead and axial types. The job of a capacitor is to hold electric charge. It constitutes of a pair of close conductors, one positive, and the other negative, which are responsible for storing electricity (positive charge and negative charge) when the capacitor is connected to a source of power. Capacity of a capacitor is called capacitance, which is calculated in Farad (F). On NCL, you will find several types of capacitors variable capacitor, spherical capacitor, electrolytic capacitor, ceramic capacitor, power capacitor, and so on.
As the name suggests, they are used for providing an amount of resistance in a circuit. They are very important components and even the simplest of electronic projects require resistors. They are not affected by the circuit’s polarity and thus, you could install a resistor in any direction you wish and let the power flow through it.
Resistors are especially important in when you are using LED in your project. By using a resistor, you can cut down on the flow of current to the LED, thus preventing it from burning itself out. Another use of resistor is to divide voltage when a certain part of your project requires lesser voltage. Lastly, you can use the product with capacitors to achieve desired electrical charge. On NCL, we have resistors from different manufacturers that would make your project a success.
A diode is made of semiconductor material (P-type and N-type). It also has two leads at either end, which facilitates easy placement of the diode in a circuit. This item is used to maneuver the electricity flow in one direction. Most common types of diodes are rectifier diodes, which are used for transforming alternating current to direct current, signal diodes that are used for small current loads and Zener diodes, which are used in advanced projects, as they can handle a reverse flow of current.
Quartz Crystal Oscillators and Quartz Crystal Resonators
These components come in handy when you require optimum oscillator stability in your projects. Quartz crystals are used in the oscillators because of their formidable strength. In every oscillator the thickness and size of the quartz differs, as it is responsible for the output oscillation frequency. Our selection of resonators and oscillators will certainly cater to the needs of your project.
Front Panel Control Buttons
Once you are through with designing and successful operation of your project, you need control buttons for ease of function. On NCL, we have a huge variety of buttons in varied sizes, shapes and colors, which would make your project presentable and user friendly.
