High Resistance

Some articles on resistance, high resistance, high:

CMOS - Inversion
... 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 ... 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 ...
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
... Also, AFCIs 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 ... 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 and exacerbate ...
Resistive Random-access Memory - Mechanism
... 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 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 ...

Famous quotes containing the words resistance and/or high:

    The free man is a warrior.—How is freedom measured among individuals, among peoples? According to the resistance that must be overcome, according to the trouble it takes to stay on top. The highest type of free man must be sought where the highest resistance is constantly overcome: five steps away from tyranny, close to the threshold of the danger of servitude.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The way to go to the circus, however, is with someone who has seen perhaps one theatrical performance before in his life and that in the High School hall.... The scales of sophistication are struck from your eyes and you see in the circus a gathering of men and women who are able to do things as a matter of course which you couldn’t do if your life depended on it.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
