High Resistance

Some articles on high, high resistance, resistance:

Resistive Random-access Memory - Mechanism
... formed after application of a sufficiently high voltage ... filament 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 ...
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 ...
Arc-fault Circuit Interrupter - Limitations
... no specific protection 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
... The 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 ... other hand, the composition 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 is applied ... 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:

    Even the most subjected person has moments of rage and resentment so intense that they respond, they act against. There is an inner uprising that leads to rebellion, however short- lived. It may be only momentary but it takes place. That space within oneself where resistance is possible remains.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)

    You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)
