Electronic Parts

  • Making PCBs
    When designing printed circuit boards (PCBs) for your own custom electronics devices, it is important to ensure that the spaces on the board can accommodate the various components for which they are m....
  • PCB Suppliers
    As design and manufacturing tools have advanced over the years, more and more suppliers of printed circuit boards (PCBs) have popped up in the marketplace. Computer-aided design (CAD) applications ha....
  • Obsolete Electronics Parts
    An increasingly viable and attractive alternative for companies looking to save money is to use obsolete electronic parts to repair or replace damaged systems instead of continually purchasing new and....
  • Transistors
    Transistors are the key to the digital revolution. Old-style vacuum tube circuits were so large and inefficient that they could never be practical for most computing needs. Without transistors, person....
  • Passive Electronic Components
    Most electronic components fall into two categories: Passive electronic components and active electronic components. To understand what passive electronic components are, it is first necessary to know....
  • Mil Spec Connectors
    Mil-spec connectors have been certified by the U.S. government for use in military applications. Not all mil-spec connectors find their way into military use, however, and they can be used in other ap....
  • Electromechanical Relays
    Electromechanical relays are electromechanical switches. They control the flow of electricity in a circuit. Devices would be unusable without this simple bit of technology. Imagine a blender you co....
  • Multilayer Printed Circuit Boards
    Complex circuit systems can be achieved by creating a multilayer circuit board for your electronics project. On multilayer boards there are pathways of current flow that occur at a board layer that is....
  • PCB Testing
    Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are incredibly intricate and surprisingly complex. If you have ever opened up your computer and examined the motherboard, you know that the power pathways resemble micro....
  • Excess Inventory Buyers
    For small to mid-sized companies, the cost of keeping an excessive inventory of obsolete electronic components can be a serious detriment to business. The carrying cost of maintaining an inventory of ....
