Bridge Rectifier Circuit – Electronics Basics

In this tutorial, it’s going to be all about rectifiers! We’re going to learn the basics of their operation, and then we’re going to build a bridge rectifier circuit out of four diodes that can be used in your projects to convert AC to DC. In a previous tutorial we talked about diodes and how […]

What is a Diode? – Electronics Basics

what is a diode?

In this tutorial we’re going to answer the fundamental question that you’ve all been asking recently, “What is a diode?”  A diode is a fundamental component that is at the very basics of many electronics projects.  Unlike some of the passive components we’ve talked about recently (like resistors), a diode is a semiconductor. And as […]
