   Under discussion
DescriptionMany electronic components and basic circuits are characterized by the (minimum) number of active electronic terminals. To make an electrical circuit, the minimum number of active electronic terminals are two. E.g. en:triode have three, en:diode has two, en:transistors typically has three; but also exist with four (en:tetrode transistor), en:resistor has two, en:octode has eight, en:Neon lamp has two.
