Passive Components

Passive electronic components, such as resistors, inductors, capacitors, or transformers, do not require any source of energy to perform their function in an application.
Capacitors (24 Products, 207 Companies)
Fundamental electrical components that store charge and energy in the electric field between a pair of conductors (“plates”) separated by an insulating material called the dielectric. Used in electronic circuits, filters, power supplies, etc.
Coils, Inductors & Magnetics (31 Products, 410 Companies)
Coils, inductors and magnetics account for types of fixed and variable coils and inductors, including chokes and reactors. Also included are ferrite parts and materials related to magnetic applications.
Potentiometers, Trimmers & Controls (12 Products, 92 Companies)
Potentiometers, trimmers and controls pertain to the variable or adjustable properties of resistors.
Resistors (37 Products, 207 Companies)
Resistors are fundamental circuit components having electrical resistance and utilized in an electric circuit for purposes of protection, operation, or control of current.
Transformers (55 Products, 467 Companies)
Transformers are electrical devices, which by electromagnetic induction, transform electrical energy from one or more circuits to one or more other circuits at the same frequency, but usually at a different voltage and current value.
