Every electronic device and gadget we use, ranging from a simple calculator to a laptop consists of multiple small and big electronic components. These components form the base for any sort of electronic device — LEDs, buzzers, sensors, resistors, capacitors, inductors, rectifiers, transistors, microcontrollers, microprocessors, ICs, diodes, switches, pushbuttons, fuse, transformers; the list is endless.
Every component holds great value, and the failure of even one small component can cause the entire system to crash.
On a smaller scale, students also engage in developing mini projects for schools and colleges, or even as a hobby. But it’s not always easy to find the desired component in the closest shop or a pre-made kit.
For every electronics enthusiast out there, here’s a list of the top seven websites to buy electronic components in India.
