DB 107S Bridge Rectifier. Component Guide 10

SMD BRIDGE RECTIFIERBridge Rectifier is used to convert AC to DC and the process is known as Rectification. IN 4007 diodes are used to make a Fullwave Rectifier bridge. After rectification, the AC ripples from the DC will be removed using a high value Smoothing capacitor. Bridge Rectifier modules are available to make the circuit compact. DB107S is the SMD version of the Bridge rectifier Module. It is some what larger in size, so that it can be soldered easily. DB107S can handle up to 1000 volts and 1 Ampere current.

DS 18B20 Digital Temperature Sensor. Component Guide 9

DS-18B-20 DS 18B20 is a Programmable Digital Temperature sensor that gives Digital outputs based on the temperature. It provides 9-12 configurable Bit temperature readings which indicate the temperature of the device. Information is sent to / from to connect from a Central Microprocessor to the DS 18B20. Power for reading, writing and temperature conversion can be derived from the Data line itself so that no external power source is needed.
