Tutorial: MOSFETs as Transistor Switches

MOSFETs are the most common transistors used today. They are switches that can be used an Arduino, BeagleBone, or Raspberry Pi. When it comes down to it, MOSFETs are pretty complicated...

What are MEMS Sensors? What are the Types Available in the Market?

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are a class of devices characterised both by their small size and the manner in which these are made. These are made up of component sizes between 1...

OLED Displays and Their Applications

An overview of the current status of OLEDs along with different OLED types and their applications Over the last few years, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) have found promising applications in flat-panel displays,...
Linear Solenoid

What Is Solenoid And How It Works?

Before we dive in deep into the principles of a  solenoid, let’s get a basic understanding of what an electromagnet is. An electric current flowing through a coiled wire creates a magnetic...
