What do you understand by the term ‘Transistors’?
Transistors are electronic switches that may or may not allow the flow of current in a current path.
- When it allows current to flow, the switch is ON. This represents 1 bit.
- When it does not allow current to flow, the switch is OFF. This represents 0 bit.
- Transistors are placed into chips also known as IC. They measure in mm`s and are known contain millions of transistors.
- Microprocessors these days are created using microns as their measuring size.
