A projector is a visual display unit that is used to project pictures and films onto a screen. Depending on the technology used, several types of projectors available such as LCD projector, LED projector, DLP projector, 4K Projector, Laser projector, etc. In this article, we will discuss about DLP and LCD projectors, and how they are different from each other. The basic difference between the two is that DLP projectors use a series of mirrors placed on a microchip that act as pixels, whereas LCD projectors use liquid crystals placed between two transparent electrodes and two polarizing filters.

To communicate with the computers, we need some languages. These are computer languages.There are mainly three different languages with the help of which we can develop computer programs. And they are –Machine Level languageAssembly Level Language andHigh Level LanguageMachine Level LanguageComputer can understand only the language of Digital Electronics. Digital Electronics deals with presence and absence of voltages. Within the computer there are two logics can play their role. These logics are –Positive Logic – Here presence of voltage will be denoted by 1 and absence of voltage will be denoted by 0Negative Logic – Here presence of voltage will be ... Read More

Light can be obtained from various sources like candles, lamp and sunrays etc. Light bulb had invented by Thomas Edison in 1879. An electric current is passed through a filament inside bulb, it gets heated up and emits light when sufficient current is passed through the filament. That means it converts electrical energy into heat energy in the bulb. Where in Light Emitting Diodes (LED), electronic electrical energy can directly converted into light energy.Light is a energy which is released by atoms. Particles of light are photons which have no mass. Atoms are basic building blocks which are made of small ... Read More

A Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) is a three terminal circuit or device that amplifies flow of current. It is solid state device that flows current in two terminals, i.e., collector and emitter and controlled by third device known as terminal or base terminal. Unlike a normal p-n junction diode, this transistor has two p-n junctions. The basic symbols of BJT are n-type and p-type. Electronic current is conducted by both free electrons and holes in bipolar junction transistor.Terminals of Bipolar Junction TransistorsThere are three terminals in bipolar junction transistors are explained below.Emitter − It supplies charge carriers. It is highly ... Read More
