Voltage Division

A lot many electronic students and even professionals get confused

In a very small but tricky thing called “Voltage Division” Use of voltage division is the core part of electrical signal analysis, processing and many other applications.

Primarily used in driving transistor based circuits, its application is unlimited to the most advanced analogue and digital systems.

Many laws and rules have been time to time created to widen its application but the most simple one is to divide the voltage at a point and manipulate such as to get the desired results.

The simplest application we can think of it are:
1. Transistor biasing.
2. Transducers.
3. Microphones working.
4. Resistor based sensors.
5. Data communication.
6. Switching applications.

Basically, if we talk of electronics, on every step you need to use the voltage division so as to differentiate between the state change or voltage or current change to enable the given device understand that there have been some or the other change.

In simple words, voltage division is the secret of any device working. If we talk about digital devices, here are some simple applications which lets these devices work:
1. Pin pull up or pull down or switching.
2. Data acquisition.
3. Communication (any type of).
4. ADC.
5. Timing applications.
6. Frequency generation and detection etc.

Its a basic but strong start up to understand the value of voltage division which when applied in complex form, turns out to be the heart of most advanced electronics systems of today.

The next few articles will be posted on the practical implementation of this simple application which will be very easy but very useful in understanding the electronics basic.

Hope this will be helpful to the starters.

If you have any queries regarding anything, I will be happy to solve from whatever I have known all these years.
