Bridge Rectifier Circuit Diagram

Bridge Rectifier

Rectifier A rectifier is a device that converts AC into DC. The power available to us is in the form of AC. But almost all electrical equipments work on DC. So we need a converter   that converts AC into DC. We employ a rectifier circuit for this purpose. Rectifiers are basically classified into Half Wave and Full wave according to the cycles (either Half of a cycle or Full) that are rectified. Among these the bridge rectifier is the most [...]

IPv6 takes over IPv4

Ever since its introduction, internet has captured the imagination and lives of millions of users around the globe and is still growing steadfastedly. The Internet  operates by transferring data between hosts in packets that are routed across networks in accordance with specific  protocols. IP address of a host or user computer is a label assigned for host identification, just like a residential address. IPv6, a successor of IPv4, is a version of the Internet Protocol (IP) which is currently used worldwide for internet trafficking. IPv4 [...]

A NEW ERA OF HYBRID VEHICLES !!!!!!!!!!!! (GO GREEN)

   In this era of increasing petroleum costs, the arrival of hybrid vehicles is inevitable. Energy consumption is rising day to day resulting  in the decrease of natural resources. The fuel consumption rate all over the world in going up. So we have to find alternate sources of energy for using vehicles. Also the threats to the nature by the increasing number of fossil fuel vehicles is increasing. thus all these circumstances lead us to the world wide application [...]

WILL PHOTONICS REPLACE ELECTRONICS???

PHOTONICS  A TECHNOLOGY OF TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After doing a wonderful job in all fields, Electronics seems to have  reached certain limits. Here is where the  importance of PHOTONICS is to be analysed. The  capability of a photon to carry information signals are being widely researched. It has become successful up to a certain limit in the communication field after the introduction of Fibre Optics. But  the capability of a photon in computing and control is still a question mark in front of the scientists. A photon is [...]

OXIDE THIN FILMS REPLACING PN JUNCTIONS.

North Carolina State University have developed the first functional oxide thin films that can be used efficiently in electronics, opening the door to an array of new high-power devices and smart sensors. This is the first time that researchers have been able to produce positively charged (p-type) conduction and negatively charged (n-type) conduction in a single oxide material, launching a new era in oxide electronics. To make functional electronic devices, you need materials with a “p-n junction,” where the positively [...]
