The Component Class

The Component class acts as an abstract base class upon which all specific hardware components must be derived. The objects instantiated from these derived classes contain all the elements and functions to process input signals and produce appropriate output signals. If the component contains subcomponents, its purpose is to pass signals it receives to its encapsulated subcomponents.
