High Resistance

Some articles on high resistance, resistance, high:

Commutator (electric) - Brush Construction
... One of these was the development of 'high resistance brushes', or brushes made from a mixture of copper powder and carbon ... Although described as high resistance brushes, the resistance of a such a brush was of the order of milliohms, the exact value dependant on the size and function of the machine ... Also, the high resistance brush was not constructed like a brush but in the form of a carbon block with a curved face to match the shape of the commutator ...
Resistive Random-access Memory - Mechanism
... path formed after application of a sufficiently high voltage ... is formed, it may be reset (broken, resulting in high resistance) or set (re-formed, resulting in lower resistance) by an appropriately applied voltage ... First there are effects where the polarity between switching from the low to the high resistance level (reset operation) is reversed compared to the switching between the high and the ...
Arc-fault Circuit Interrupter - Limitations
... against "glowing" connections, excess current, high line voltages or low line voltages ... Glowing connections occur when relatively high electric current exists in a relatively large resistance object ... Terminal screws loosened by vibration, improper tightening or other causes offer increased resistance to the current, with consequent heating and potential thermal creep, which will cause the ...
CMOS - Inversion
... composition of a PMOS transistor creates low resistance between its source and drain contacts when a low gate voltage is applied and high resistance when a high gate voltage is applied ... of an NMOS transistor creates high resistance between source and drain when a low gate voltage is applied and low resistance when a high gate voltage ... A high voltage on the gates will cause the nMOSFET to conduct and the pMOSFET to not conduct while a low voltage on the gates causes the reverse ...

Famous quotes containing the words resistance and/or high:

    It was not seen that woman’s place was in the home until she began to go out of it; the statement was a reply to an unspoken challenge, it was attempted resistance to irresistible change.
    Rose Wilder Lane (1886–1965)

    Like other high subjects, the Law gives no ground to common sense.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
