DE Key Terms 1.1

Introduction to Electronics

Analog Representation of physical quantities by proportional continuous current or voltage. - Temperature - Velocity
Breadboard Temporary wiring circuit board.
Conventional Current Current flow form positive to negative potential, opposite of electron flow.
Current The movement of voltage through a circuit.
Digital Representation of physical quantities by binary on and off signals. Only has specified discrete values.
Digital Multi-Meter(DMM) Tool used to measure voltage, current and resistance in a circuit.
Engineering Notation The engineering equivalent of scientific notation but the power of ten is a multiple of 3.
Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL) The sum of all currents in and out of a branch point must be zero.
Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law (KVL) The sum of all voltages around a closed path , must be zero.
LED One-directional current editor used for illumination when conducted, called a light-emitting diode.
Ohm Omega, unit of resistance equal to one ampere with a voltage of one.
Ohm’s Law Current is equal to Voltage over Resistance. I = V/R
Parallel Circuit A circuit with one or more branches with independent current coming from a single voltage source/
Resistance Opposition to current measured in ohm's.
Resistor Color Code Color code found on resistors classifying resistor value and tolerance/offset from that value.
Scientific Notation Notation where in numbers are classified with a number multiplied by ten to some power. - 2000 becomes 2 x 10^3
Series Circuit Circuit with only one current path.
Simulation Testing done through the observation of input and output waveforms with data given from system the system is getting the simulation done for.
SI Notation A system of units used around the world. - Kilometer, Kelvin, Mole
Solder Metallic alloy that is melted onto two metal surfaces for joining.
Soldering Joining two metal surfaces through the use of a soldering iron and applying solder onto to the place in question.
Soldering Iron Tool that heats solder material and melts it for application onto metallic surfaces.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
