Introduction: Active Circuits

Unlike passive circuits, which are generally comprised of networks of resistors, capacitors and inductors, active circuits make use of semiconductors and other amplifying devices. Active circuits are thus somewhat more complicated than their passive counterparts and their applications include:

  • Rectifiers, power supplies and voltage regulators
  • Amplifying current and voltage
  • Generating signals and waveforms.
