Design & Technology
There are many different types of electrical and electronic components, including resistors, capacitors and diodes. Each of these has a specific use in a circuit. Electronic components can be divided into two groups: discrete electronic components and integrated circuits (ICs).
Discrete electronic components
Discrete (meaning separate) electronic components can be selected individually and put together to make a circuit. Examples of discrete components includeresistors, capacitors, diodes andtransistors.
Discrete components can also be used as components in circuits that include an integrated circuit. For example, a 555 astable integrated circuit requires two discrete resistors and a discrete capacitor to make it work.

The Diploma in Digital Applications (DiDA)
You need to create a project plan for your DiDA product. Set yourself clear objectives that should be achieved at the end of the project. Tables and GANTT charts are useful for project planning.
The planning stage helps you to get through the the project efficiently.
A detailed project plan:
- identifies all key tasks
- breaks tasks into sub-tasks
- puts all tasks into sensible order
- allocates sensible times to each task
- includes some time for ‘contingencies’ (events that could happen in the future, but that aren’t planned for)
Key questions to ask when planning your project include:
- what do I have to produce?
- what is it for?
- who is the intended audience?
- when do I have to have it finished?
- What resources can I use?
Plan your work properly – before you start. Don’t try to do the project and then come back to the plan when you’ve finished.

ICT systems and their usage
ou need to know the general structure of information systems, and how they work; the role of input, output, processing and feedback; and the integration of ICT devices and ICT information systems.
What is an ICT System?
An ICT system is a set-up consisting of hardware, software, data and the people who use them. It commonly includes communications technology, such as the Internet.
ICT and computers are not the same thing.
Computers are the hardware that is often part of an ICT system.
This is why your GCSE is not just about computers but about how, why and when people use them. It is the power of computers and communications that has allowed ICT systems to become so important. Like any piece of equipment, the important thing about it is what it lets us do.
ICT Systems are used in a number of environments, such as:
They’re also used in fields such as:
ICT Systems are everyday and ordinary, yet extraordinary in how they can add extra power to what we do and want to do.
