The Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT): A Practical Guide

This is a practical guide to the Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor, or IGBT. You’ll learn how to use it from a practical standpoint – without going into the physics of what it looks like on the inside. The IGBT is often presented as something complex and advanced. But when you strip away the physics explanation and get down to practice, putting it into a circuit is straightforward.

By the end of this guide, you will be able to use an IGBT and build your first simple circuit with it.

Photodiode – A Beginner’s Guide

In this guide you are going to learn what a photodiode is, how it works, and more importantly, how you can use it in your own circuits. We’ll go through the basics, then build a fully working fire sensor circuit! Did you know that there are two different ways to use photodiodes? Both of them
