When choosing the various integrated circuit components for an electronic device, one will likely consider an LED as a lighting mechanism. After all, LED technology has garnered much popularity in the portable device market thanks to its increased efficiency and expanded lifespan. Of the various considerations one must keep in mind when implementing LED technology, the driver circuit is one of the most important. In this blog, we will discuss how LEDs work in portable devices and what nuances surround choosing a driver circuit for such applications.

A wirewound resistor is an electrical passive device that limits or restricts current within a circuit. The resistive element is a wire made of varying alloys that is insulated by a non-conductive material like a vitreous enamel that can block or deflect exterior heat. The wire is typically made of nickel-chromium or a copper-nickel-manganese alloy called Manganin, both of which have a high resistivity. Other common materials used include ceramic, plastic, and glass.

A resistor is a type of passive two-terminal electrical component, commonly implemented within an electronic circuit for the means of providing electrical resistance. Resistors can serve many roles ranging from the reduction of current flow to the termination of transmission lines, and various types may be used for particular needs or requirements. The fusible resistor, commonly known as a fuse resistor, is one that may be used for the protection of a circuit. Capable of guarding a system against current load jumps, such resistors are regularly implemented in series with the input main power supply of a device or assembly.

As commercial aircraft have gotten larger and heavier, their landing speeds have gotten higher and higher as well. This has made bringing aircraft to a stop more difficult, as these aircraft require longer and longer landing strips. In many cases, brakes can no longer be solely relied upon to slow the aircraft. Therefore, many commercial aircraft now use thrust reversers. Thrust reversers, as their name implies, reverses the thrust generated by the engines to slow the aircraft. Thrust reversers come in two categories: mechanical blockage, and aerodynamic blockage.
