What are Active components in electronics and Their Classification

Definition of Active components: “Active components are those who has the ability to control flow of electrons either by using voltage or by using another current.” Voltage-controlled devices are MOSFETs, vacuum tubes, while current-controlled devices are bipolar junction transistors which allow one current to control another. Active components can be of different types like semiconductor […]
