Capacitornoun

(electronics) An electronic component capable of storing electrical energy in an electric field; especially one consisting of two conductors separated by a dielectric.

Transistornoun

A solid-state semiconductor device, with three terminals, which can be used for amplification, switching, voltage stabilization, signal modulation, and many other functions.

Capacitornoun

a device used in electronic circuits to hold electrical charge, consisting of two conducting plates separated by a nonconducting (dielectric) medium; it is characterized by its capacitance.

Transistornoun

A transistor radio.

Capacitornoun

an electrical device characterized by its capacity to store an electric charge

Transistornoun

a component used in electronic devices consisting of three regions of at least two types of a semiconducting material, such as doped silicon, connected to each other and to three electrodes in a conducting path so as to modify the current or voltage in an electronic circuit.

Capacitornoun

a device used to store an electric charge, consisting of one or more pairs of conductors separated by an insulator.

Transistornoun

a semiconductor device capable of amplification

Capacitor

A capacitor is a device that stores electrical energy in an electric field. It is a passive electronic component with two terminals.

Transistornoun

a semiconductor device with three connections, capable of amplification in addition to rectification.

Transistornoun

a portable radio using circuits containing transistors rather than valves.

Transistor

A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify or switch electronic signals and electrical power. Transistors are one of the basic building blocks of modern electronics.
