Modern-day computers are based on logic circuits using semiconductor transistors. To increase computing power, smaller transistors are required. Moore´s Law states that the number of transistors that can fit on an integrated circuit should double every two years due to scaling. But as transistors reach atomic dimensions, achieving this feat is becoming increasingly difficult. Among the most significant challenges is heat dissipation from circuits created using today´s standard...

Avoid a dreaded “flip-flop fiasco” to keep feet healthy and happy this summer, says The American Podiatric Medical Association Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 25, 2012 Flip-flops, and sandals, and “slippers,” oh my! Summer is officially here and it´s that time of year again: with warm weather comes an increase in tendinitis, stress fractures, and other injuries that can be attributed to America´s favorite summer footwear. Whatever you choose to call them, flip...

A transistor, made of a solid piece of semiconductor material, is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It has at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. The transistor amplifies the signal since the controlled power can be much more than the controlling power. The transistor is a fundamental building block of...

Computer hardware describes the physical components that make up a personal computer. Operating systems and many software applications can be installed on hardware in order to perform the operator's desired functions. Most personal computers consist of a chassis in a tower shape, a desktop, all of which contain hardware components. The main component inside the case of the computer is the motherboard. It is a large rectangular board with incorporated circuits that connect things to the...
