Electronics is the science of controlling electrical energy electrically, in which the electrons have a fundamental role. Electronics deals with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes, integrated circuits, associated passive electrical components, and interconnection technologies. Commonly, electronic devices contain circuitry consisting primarily or exclusively of active semiconductors supplemented with passive elements; such a circuit is described as an electronic circuit. — Wikipedia

David Darling’s Internet Encyclopedia of Science, Encyclopædia Britannica

Electronic media are media that use electronics or electromechanical energy for the end-user (audience) to access the content. This is in contrast to static media (mainly print media), which today are most often created electronically, but don’t require electronics to be accessed by the end-user in the printed form. The primary electronic media sources familiar to the general public are better known as video recordings, audio recordings, multimedia presentations, slide presentations, CD-ROM and online content. Most new media are in the form of digital media. However, electronic media may be in either analog or digital format. Although the term is usually associated with content recorded on a storage medium, recordings are not required for live broadcasting and online networking. Any equipment used in the electronic communication process (e.g. television, radio, telephone, desktop computer, game console, handheld device) may also be considered electronic media. — Wikipedia

  • Drop-in module brings Wi-Fi to Arduino Uno
    by Steve Bush on January 19, 2022 at 9:46 am

    Someone has invented a way to add Wi-Fi to a standard Arduino Uno, by proposing a module that drops into the DIL socket normally reserved for the ATmega328 – it will not work with Unos that have a surface-mount 328. The proposed 28pin DIL module includes a surface-mount ATmega328, plus an Espressif ESP8285 for the Wi-Fi ...
