Increase in voltage, current and/or power. Gain is
expressed as a ratio of amplifier output value to the
corresponding amplifier input value.
gain bandwidth product
A device parameter that indicates the maximum possible
product of gain and bandwidth. The gain bandwidth
product of a device is equal to the
unity gain frequency (funity)of the device.
High frequency electromagnetic radiation from radio
Mechanical coupling of two or more capacitors, switches,
potentiometers, or any other adjustable components so
that adjusting one control will operate all.
Any aeriform or completely elastic fluid which is not a
solid or a liquid. Gasses are produced by heating a
liquid beyond its boiling point.
Device used to detect nuclear particles.
Device used to convert mechanical energy to electrical
Metric prefix for 1 billion (109).
An intentional or accidental conducting path between an
electrical system or circuit and the earth or some
conducting body acting in place of the earth. A ground

A semiconductor diode that utilizes the Gunn effect to
produce microwave frequency oscillation or to amplify a
microwave frequency signal.
