An understanding of Electronic Components
- By:Trade Romanian
Is there a difference between electronic components and devices?
It is true that Electronic Components are divided into components and devices from different perspectives.
From a manufacturing perspective
Components: Electronic products made without changing the molecular structure of the material are called components.
Devices: Products that have altered the molecular structure of the material at the time of manufacture are called devices
However, the manufacturing of modern Electronic Components involves a lot of physical and chemical processes. Many electronic functional materials are inorganic non-metallic materials. The crystal structure changes are always accompanied in the manufacturing process.
Obviously, this distinction is not scientific.
Distinguish from structural unit perspective
Component: A product with a single structural mode and a single performance characteristic is called a component.
Device: A product consisting of two or more components with performance characteristics different from that of a single component.
