- Transistor : A semiconductor device that allows a signal at its input terminal(s) (usually a current or a voltage) to control an output signal at its output terminal(s), acting either as a switch activated by the input signal or as an amplifier for the input signal.
- CMOS : A circuit architecture used in high-density integrated circuits involving both p-channel and n-channel MOSFETs and known for exceptionally low power consumption
- Mode (electronics) : A range of operation of an electrical device set by its bias condition or, when no signals are present, its quiescent or operating point.
- Semiconductor : A substance (usually a solid) with electrical conductivity intermediate between metals and insulators.
- Electronic band structure : The very closely spaced energy levels available to electrons in solids, which are separated from each other by energy gaps.
- Fermi function : The equilibrium occupancy of an energy level in a system of independent fermions at a fixed temperature.
- Semiconductor diode : Two-terminal device that conducts current in only one direction, made of two or more layers of material, of which at least one is a semiconductor.
- MOS capacitor : A two-terminal device consisting of three layers: a metal gate, a semiconducting body and a separating insulator, often an oxide.
