Photoresistor: The Best Choice for Your Applications

Several electronic components detect the presence of light levels, such as phototransistor or photodiodes. However, the electronic components have PN junctions and semiconductor materials with low resistance change due to light intensity. Therefore, you’ll need a particular type of variable resistor known as a photoresistor to carry out the light-sensing operation.  They are easy to […]
