|Electronics are an important part of high tech products.
Electronics serve many functions in products. Some examples are:
- Convert power from a wall outlet to power a laptop
- Run a motor
- Display images on a screen
Electronics are typically divided into several broad categories.
Digital electronics at its lowest level is ones and zeros. It is associated with
computers, micro-processors and software, and forms the basis of most modern
Analog electronics are more of the real world things that electronics interface to.
Some examples would be playing music and reading a temperature. The
information to the outside world is analog, but is quite often converted to digital
inside of the product.
Power electronics deal with the generation, transmission and conversion of
electrical power. A common conversion done is AC from a wall socket to DC to
power the internal circuitry of a product.
