In today's fabrication plants, solid-state circuit
elements are etched onto the surface of a silicon wafer by a lithographic process somewhat like exposing photographic film and then developing it.
A solid-state circuit
breaker [1-3] is able to switch as fast as voltage or current sensing devices can response to the faulty signal.
Castello has been a member of the technical committee of the European Solid-state Circuit
Conference (ESSCIRC) since 1987 and the International Solid-state Circuit
Conference since 1992, and was technical chairman of ESSCIRC '91.
Engineers who never had been quite certain of how the incident wave propagates across the MESFET gate strip, or the direction electrons flow in the presence of an electron depletion layer will find the diagrams depicting the physical functioning of solid-state circuit
elements, most enlightening.
This new technology was announced at the International Solid-State Circuits
Conference (ISSCC) on February 11, 2018 in San Francisco in the United States.
Generally, power converters, which take an input voltage and convert it to a steady output voltage, are efficient only within a narrow range of currents but, at the International Solid-State Circuits
Conference, researchers from the Microsystems Technologies Laboratories (MTL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Mass.
