Component choice for Elektor projects

Our Components
Newcomers to this magazine quite often send us emails with lots of questions about the component choice for projects described in the magazine. Although photographs of our prototypes provide lots of clues, they can’t tell the whole story of how we picked such and such a component for a specific function. Some additional information is given in this article.
In the parts lists printed with construction articles in this magazine, most components lack an exact description. That’s not only because the application is not particularly demanding in respect of component ratings, but also because we assume that you, the electronics enthusiast, know perfectly well what we mean. However, many less confident readers have problems deciding which parameters are tight and which are ‘fairly loose’.
