What stops electrons?

A sheet of aluminum foil will provide shielding against a stream of electrons. Note that a stream of electrons will have trouble getting through air itself. That's because ele (MORE)

What is an electronic latch?

An electronic latch is a simple bi-stable state-holding circuit. That means it has two stable "states", kind of like a light switch (ON and OFF). Once the latch is switched ON (MORE)
