Latest Transistor Stories
Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have shown that it is possible to reduce the minimum voltage necessary to store charge in a capacitor, an achievement that could reduce the power draw and heat generation of today's electronics.
Researchers are making progress in creating digital transistors using a material called graphene, potentially sidestepping an obstacle thought to dramatically limit the material's use in computers and consumer electronics.
New research from Wake Forest University has advanced the field of plastic-based flexible electronics by developing, for the first time, an extremely large molecule that is stable, possesses excellent electrical properties, and inexpensive to produce.
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., (TAEC)* has announced a new range of power MOSFETs that combine the company's latest trench MOS process with its enhanced DPAK+ package technology.
There is a new way to design computer chips and electronic circuitry for extreme environments: make them out of diamond.
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...
A chip, also known as an integrated circuit, is a miniaturized electronic circuit consisting mainly of semiconductor devices and passive components, that has been manufactured in the surface of a thin substrate of semiconductor material. There are many different types of chips: microcircuit, microchip, silicon chip, etc. Integrated circuits are regularly used in present-day electronic equipment and have modernized the world of electronics. Computers, cellular phones, and other electronic...
Germanium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Ge and atomic number 32. This is a lustrous, hard, silver-white, metalloid that is chemically similar to tin. Germanium forms a large number of organometallic compounds and is an important semiconductor material used in transistors. Notable characteristics Germanium is a hard, grayish-white element that has a metallic luster and the same crystal structure as diamond. In addition, it is important to note that...
