High Resistance

Some articles on high, high resistance, resistance:

Resistive Random-access Memory - Mechanism
... 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 ... 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 ...
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 resistance when a high ... 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 ...
Arc-fault Circuit Interrupter - Limitations
... Also, AFCIs provide no specific protection against "glowing" connections, excess current, high line voltages or low line voltages ... 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 ...
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 ...

Famous quotes containing the words resistance and/or high:

    You may either win your peace or buy it: win it, by resistance to evil; buy it, by compromise with evil.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    Life! Life! Don’t let us go to life for our fulfilment or our experience. It is a thing narrowed by circumstances, incoherent in its utterance, and without that fine correspondence of form and spirit which is the only thing that can satisfy the artistic and critical temperament. It makes us pay too high a price for its wares, and we purchase the meanest of its secrets at a cost that is monstrous and infinite.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
