Components are the most basic elements in an electronic circuit. Characteristic is that they're in a single package. There are passive and active components, from as simple as a zero -ohm resistor to as complex as a multi-billion transistor IC.

This tag should be used in any questions related to mystery components, what component you should use in X scenario, or any question related to a circuit that you don't know what component to use to achieve a desired result.
