Buy Circuit Board Components
Circuit boards and electronics are composed of different parts. Some parts modify and manage current and voltage, while others connect or modify the connections between elements. There are basic circuit board components that are needed for nearly any project or design:
Circuit Boards have one or more layers of conductive copper foils. The foil on the circuit board is etched to become the wiring of your circuit. They are the main component in any electronic device, and have become increasingly small and efficient. Circuit boards have a wide range of complexity, quality, materials, and price points.
Resisters limit the flow of current in the circuit board, and they work by converting electrical energy into a small amount of heat. Resistors come in many different power ratings, which relate to how much electrical energy they dissipate. Resistors are extremely useful, and commonly used to protect sensitive elements, adjust signal levels, control the “path” of a current, and divide voltages. Resistors are essential in controlling how the current flows through your circuit board.
Potentiometers are essentially variable resistors. Their resistance increases or decreases when they are physically manipulated (usually by turning a mechanical contact, or rotating a wiper). Potentiometers used to be quite large, but they have gotten so small they are now found as a component in common electronics. Common uses of potentiometers include tactical control knobs (such as volume, or tuning a radio), and controllers (such as a joystick).
Capacitors store electricity, and are typically shaped like disks, gumdrops, or larger cylinders. Capacitors are simple in design, but they have a plethora of uses. You can use capacitors as a timing device, a tuning device (common in televisions and radios), or as a way to smooth the voltage in your circuit.
Connectors are how components in your circuit connect to each other, or how your circuit connects to other devices. Most connectors have a plastic exterior with multiple pins. Circuit board connectors have a wide variety of uses, from connecting to a power supply to enabling components to be wired together. They come in many shapes and sizes, and there are often adaptors to allow different types of connectors to work together.
Diodes one-way electrical components with a band that indicates the current direction. Diodes are essentially switches, and play an important role in electronics, such as converting AC power to DC power, which can be seen in most electronics with a rechargeable battery. Diodes can also be used to create a sort of built-in surge protector, by suppressing spikes in voltage that may damage certain components.
LED stands for light emitting diode, and they are the most commonly recognized type of diode. LEDs emit light when exposed to a positive voltage, and their color can be manipulated by changing the amount of current that goes to the positive and negative sides of the diode, which changes the frequency of the light. LEDs are extremely common and useful; one of their typical uses is to display when an electronic device is turned on.
