  • Appendix AGlossaryAmpere (A)The unit of measurement of electric current.AmplifierElectronic device or circuit that produces an output signal with greater power, voltage, or current than that provided by the input signal.Capacitance (C)The capability of a component to store an electric charge when voltage is applied across the component, measured in farads.CapacitorA component that stores electric charge when voltage is applied to it. It can return the charge to a circuit in the form of an electric current when the voltage is removed.Current (I)The amount of electric charge flowing through a circuit, measured in amperes.DiodeA component that conducts current in one direction only.Discrete componentsIndividual electronic parts such as resistors, diodes, capacitors, and transistors.bapp01.indd 5096/14/2012 9:05:08 AM
