Technology / Computers / Semiconductor: This refers to a material that is not a good conductor of electricity (copper) nor a good insulator (plastic). Silicon and germanium are the most common semiconductor materials. Semiconductor materials are used in computer chips, both for CPU and memory. Its purpose is to create miniature electronic components that take up less space and require less energy.
Technology / Digital Cameras / Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS): One of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras. Its basic function is the same as that of a CCD. CMOS sensors are currently found in only a handful of digital cameras. MORE
Technology / Computers / Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS): A type of chip design that requires little power to operate. In PCs, a battery-powered CMOS memory and clock chip is used to store and maintain the clock setting and system configuration information, MORE
Technology / Home Audio / Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor ( Mosfet): A type of large output transistor used in the final stages of many power amplifiers, and commonly found in most car and home amplifiers today. These field-effect transistors are controlled by voltage MORE
