A transistor consisting of a source, a gate, and a drain. Current flow is controlled by the transverse electric field under the gate.
(sc) a transistor consisting of a source, gate and drain, whose action depends on the flow of majority carriers past the gate from the source to the drain. The flow is controlled by the transverse electric field under the gate.
A transistor whose control, or gate, signal creates an electro-magnetic field which turns the transistor ON or OFF.
It is a transistor where by varying the value of an electric field within a region of the device, the output current is varied.
A field-effect transistor (FET) is a type of transistor commonly used for weak-signal amplification (for example, for amplifying wireless signals). The device can amplify analog or digital signals. It can also switch DC or function as an oscillator.
a type of transistor characterised by a very high input resistance that is a voltage- operated device
A 3-terminal semiconductor device where current is from source to drain due to a conducting channel formed by a voltage field between the gate and the source.
a transistor in which most current flows in a channel whose effective resistance can be controlled by a transverse electric field
The most common type of modern transistor, and the type of transistor used in integrated circuits. The field-effect transistor is so named because an incoming weak electrical signal creates an electrical field across a section of semiconductor. This field causes a second electrical current to flow across the semiconductor, identical to the first weak signal, but stronger.
A three terminal semiconductor device. In a "FET" the current is from source to drain because a conducting channel is formed by a voltage field between the gate and the source.
voltage-controlled semiconductor device having three terminals--a gate, drain, and source--whose control, or gate, signal creates an electromagnetic field that controls the flow of current through the device (see transistor and bipolar transistor).
A type of transistor that uses an induced electric field to control current. A three-terminal, voltage-controlled device used in amplification and switching applications.
