trans·duc·er

 (trăns-do͞o′sər, -dyo͞o′-, trănz-)
n.
1. Physics A substance or device, such as a piezoelectric crystal, microphone, or photoelectric cell, that converts input energy of one form into output energy of another.
2. Biology Something, such as a receptor in a cell membrane, that transmits a signal within a cell or from the exterior of a cell to its interior.

[From Latin trānsdūcere, to transfer : trāns-, trans- + dūcere, to lead; see deuk- in Indo-European roots.]

transducer

(trænzˈdjuːsə)
n
(Electronics) any device, such as a microphone or electric motor, that converts one form of energy into another
[C20: from Latin transducere to lead across, from trans- + ducere to lead]

trans•duc•er

(trænsˈdu sər, -ˈdyu-, trænz-)

n.
a device, as a microphone, that converts a signal from one form of energy to another.

trans·duc·er

(trăns-do͞o′sər)
A device that converts one type of energy into another. For example, the transducer in a microphone converts sound waves into electric impulses, while the transducer in a loudspeaker converts electrical impulses into sound waves.

transducer

A device that converts one kind of wave signal into another.
