What is Electronic Components
An electronic component is a basic discrete device in an electronic system used to affect electrons or their associated field. In PCB design, “basic” electronic components consist of resistors, capacitors, transistors, diodes, switches, LED, relays, and integrated circuits, and more. Each basic component consists of hundreds of variations that can affect your PCB function and design.
