MOSFET still the king in semiconductors

January 19, 2016

In 1977, Alex Lidow, a physicist and the Chief Executive Officer of Efficient Power Conversion based in El Segundo, California co-invented the silicon based transistor known as MOSFET (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-efficient transistor). It is the most commonly used transistor for amplifying or switching electronic signals today mostly in digital and analog circuits. This device is hugely popular in power supplies, washing machines and many others. MOSFET hold an advantage over the…
