Technology / Home Audio / Transistor: An active (commonly three terminal) solid-state device in which a larger output current is obtained by small changes in the input current. Transistors comprise the greater number of active elements within ic's and microprocessors

Bipolar Transistor

Technology / Home Audio / Bipolar Transistor: A older but still effectively used transistor type that contains two p or n junctions or diodes between two layers of opposite polarity material (emitter and collector) . In handling large power, most MORE

Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor ( Mosfet)

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
