    Hi,
    Plz can anyone tell me what are transceivers and transducers and how do they work?
     
  2. they work?

    A "transceiver" is just a glued together word that means a glued together
    device: the combination of a transmitter and a receiver. It usually refers
    to radio. A walkie-talkie is a transceiver; so is a cell phone. Your car
    radio is not a transceiver; it's just a receiver.

    A "transducer" is anything that converts one form of energy into another.
    Some examples: a loudspeaker is a transducer, because it converts electrical
    energy into acoustic energy. A microphone is also a transducer (acoustic
    energy to electrical energy). A flashlight bulb is a transducer. So is a
    solar cell. Sometimes the concept gets broadened to include sensors, that
    is, things that convert energy into a control signal - for instance, a
    photosensitive resistor, which converts light into a change in resistance.

    I can't tell you "how they work" because there are too many different types.
    If you provide more context, perhaps.
