tri-gate transistor

Semiconductors; Transistor

New transistor designed by Intel to reduce boost frequency and/or or reduce power in microprocessors. The transistor extends the semiconductor material in 3D, increasing the ...

leakage current

Semiconductors; Transistor

Trace amounts of current which continue to flow between source and drain parts of transistors when the voltage is removed. This unwanted leakage current wastes power and becomes ...


Semiconductors; Transistor

A device made out of a solid piece of semiconductor material, which is used to amplify and switch electronic signals. Input power flows into one pair of terminals on the ...
