They contain a trigger for the coil (mechanical pickup, magnetic pickup, Hall Effect Switch, or Optical Trigger), most have an advance assemble where timing is adjusted via weights on and springs that are activated at certain rpm's, Rotor and cap used to accept the voltage from the coil and sent out through the terminals.
