Yes, we've been to that during our first year. We discussed about all theories in electronics. Actually this is our assignment. I already research for most components but I need more of those examples.

Btw. is DIODE's and IC's both passive components ???

Yeah, I already read the infos on wikipedia. But it kinda confuse me because other sources says DIODE's and IC's may belong to Passive and Active components :s

Things constantly get more difficult in the world of electronics. I started when I was 8 (am now 56) but way behind these days. Sold off all my kit when I left UK.

Electronics is a very interesting field of study. However be careful, low voltage may not be what you perceive....sometimes.

Passive Speakers - requires an amplifier

Active Speakers - has an amplifier built in
