Core Components Introduction
In Adobe Experience Manager, components are the structural elements that constitute the content of the pages being authored. Components have always been a fundamental element of the AEM experience, making page creation simple but powerful for the author and the development of components flexible and extensible for the developer.
The Core Components are a set of standardized Web Content Management (WCM) components for AEM to speed up development time and reduce maintenance cost of your websites.

The Core Components are 28 robust components that are well tested, widely used, and that perform well.
The components represent generic concepts with which the authors can assemble nearly any layout.

Some versions of individual Core Components may only be compatible with certain versions of AEM.
