solid-state switch

solid-state switch

[′säl·əd ¦stāt ′swich]
(electronics)
A microwave switch in which a semiconductor material serves as the switching element; a zero or negative potential applied to the control electrode will reverse-bias the switch and turn it off, and a slight positive voltage will turn it on.
