Researchers at MIT and the University of Augsburg have found a way to operate a semiconductive material at a lower voltage, which could inevitably help kick-start a race in computing speed that leveled off a few years ago. Computer chip makers throughout the 1980's and 1990's continued to out-do each other with faster speeds, moving from megahertz to gigahertz.  Eventually computers ran into a wall in that race as the faster processors lead to an increase in heat, which the machines are...

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...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
