Operation in the avalanche breakdown region is called avalanche-mode operation: it gives avalanche transistors the ability to switch very high currents with less than a nanosecond rise and fall times (transition times).
An avalanche photodiode (APD) is a highly sensitive semiconductor photodiode detector that exploits the photoelectric effect to convert light into electricity. From a functional standpoint, they can be regarded as the semiconductor analog of photomultiplier tubes.
AOMedia Video 1 (AV1) is an open, royalty-free video coding format initially designed for video transmissions over the Internet.
The head unit is what lets you choose the audio source, set the volume, determine the specific song you want to hear or pick the radio station you want to listen to. All audio signals also start with the head unit.
An automobile auxiliary power outlet (also known as car cigarette lighter or auxiliary power outlet) in an automobile was initially designed to power an electrically heated cigarette lighter, but became a de facto standard DC connector to supply electrical power for portable accessories used in or near an automobile …
An augmented reality (AR) sandbox is a 3D, interactive, dynamic educational tool to help understand mapping, topography, watersheds, natural hazards, and more!
Automatic test system switching test equipment allows for high-speed testing of a device or devices in a test situation, where strict sequences and combinations of switching must be observed.
AGC is a system that controls the increase in the amplitude of an electrical signal from the original input to the amplified output, automatically. AGC is used in data processing to improve the visibility of seismic data in which attenuation or spherical divergence has caused amplitude decay (Figure 5.3).
Lee De Forest invented the audion, a vacuum tube device that could take a weak electrical signal and amplify it into a larger one. The audion helped AT&T set up coast-to-coast phone service, and it was also used in everything from radios to televisions to the first computers.
AUO is world’s leading supplier of thin film transistor liquid crystal display panels (TFT-LCD).
