IC Families

What technologies can we use?
  • Peter Shepherd
Part of the New Electronics Series book series


Although there is a vast array of discrete electronic components, both active and passive, available to the circuit designer, when circuits are of a monolithic, integrated form, most of the circuit is made up of transistors. A very few diodes, resistors and capacitors may be used, but components such as inductors, transformers and the thyristor family of components are virtually never realized monolithically.
