High Resistance

Some articles on high, high resistance, resistance:

Resistive Random-access Memory - Mechanism
... through a filament or conduction path 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 ... 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 low resistance level (se ...
Arc-fault Circuit Interrupter - Limitations
... provide 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 ... 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 termination to loosen further ...
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 voltage is applied ... On the other hand, the composition of an NMOS transistor creates high resistance between source and drain when a low gate voltage is applied and low ... 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 ...
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 ... 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 ...

Famous quotes containing the words resistance and/or high:

    The aim of every political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man. These rights are liberty, property, security and resistance to oppression.
    —French National Assembly. Declaration of the Rights of Man (drafted and discussed August 1789, published September 1791)

    What generous beliefs console
    The brave whom Fate denies the goal!
    If others reach it, is content:
    To Heaven’s high will his will is bent.
    Firm on his heart relied,
    What lot soe’er betide,
    Work of his hand
    He nor repents nor grieves,
    Pleads for itself the fact,
    As unrepenting Nature leaves
    Her every act.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
