Passive and active electronic components.
Active and Passive Electronic Components is an international journal devoted to the science and technology of all types of electronic components. The journal publishes experimental and theoretical papers on such topics as electron tubes, transistors, integrated circuits, semiconductor materials, thick-film materials, resistors, capacitors, solid-state memories, and thin-film materials processes. SCHEMATIC SYMBOL AND FUNCTION.

Name| Electrical Symbol| Alternate Symbol| Function Description| ground| | | A connection to earth. Used for zero potential reference and electrical shock protection.| equipotentiality| | | Equipotentiality is a symbol to identify parts that have the same voltage (ie same electrical potential ie equipotential). Since equipotential surfaces all have the same voltage, you won't get shocked if you touch two such surfaces (unless of course you are also touching some OTHER part that has a different potential from the first two).| chassis| | | Connected to the chassis of the circuit.|

battery| | | Supplies electrical energy. A battery is more than one cell. Generates constant voltage. Represents a battery in an equipment package.| resister| | | A resistor restricts the flow of current, for example to limit the current passing through an LED. A resistor is used with a capacitor in a timing circuit.| attenuator| | | A box with input and control logic on one side, and output on the other.| capacitor| | | A capacitor stores electric charge. A capacitor is used with a resistor in a timing circuit. It can also be used as a filter, to block DC signals but pass AC signals.| accumulator| | | Accumulators are designed to increase or relieve pressure in the system.| antenna| | | A antenna is a radio antenna that can be made of a simple wire, with a center-fed driven element.| loop antenna| | | A loop antenna is a radio antenna consisting of a loop (or loops) of...
