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, 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

    by Steve Bush on March 18, 2019 at 4:28 pm

    Texas Instruments has used everything except the standard inductive step-down solution to make an ac-dc power supply with 10mW no-load performance, and 15mW light load drain (150nF mains series cap). “This device achieves the best balance between high efficiency and ultra-low noise while shrinking power-supply size, it claims, with some justification – although it does ...

    by David Manners on March 18, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    It seems to me very good news that Huawei is building its own mobile OS. Cell phone vendors spend billions on hardware tech and apps but seem happy to pluck off-the-shelf Android for the OS.  But the OS is so key you’d think this is where aspirant phone vendors should concentrate. Furthermore, IMHO, Android is ... This story continues at C’mon Huawei Show Us Your OS Or just read more coverage at Electronics Weekly […]
