Passive components, also known as passive electronic components, include transformers, crystals, capacitors, resistors, coils, and antennas. Devices that do not add energy to an electrical circuit are called passive devices. An electronic circuit consists primarily of active semiconductors supplemented with passive elements. Books and tutorials for projects are available online to describe the characteristics and measuring methods for passive electrical components. Handbooks and manuals describe electronic circuit design and provide instruction on the correct selection of components. Kits are available that supply the passive components required for the tutorials. Tools are also available for analyzing passive electronic components. Some projects require the use of a breadboard to prototype circuits. Solderless breadboards are reusable when creating analog and digital circuits.
