tran·sis·tor

 (trăn-zĭs′tər, -sĭs′-)
n.
1. A small electronic device containing a semiconductor and having at least three electrical contacts, used in a circuit as an amplifier, detector, or switch.
2. Any of various devices serving the same purpose but employing a different technology: an optical transistor.
3. A transistor radio.

transistor

(trænˈzɪstə)
n
1. (Electronics) a semiconductor device, having three or more terminals attached to electrode regions, in which current flowing between two electrodes is controlled by a voltage or current applied to one or more specified electrodes. The device is capable of amplification, etc, and has replaced the valve in most circuits since it is much smaller, more robust, and works at a much lower voltage. See also junction transistor, field-effect transistor
2. (Electronics) informal a transistor radio
[C20: originally a trademark, from transfer + resistor, referring to the transfer of electric signals across a resistor]

tran•sis•tor

(trænˈzɪs tər)

n.
1. a compact solid-state device consisting of a semiconductor with three or more electrodes: performs the primary functions of an electron tube, as amplification, switching, and detection, but uses less power.
2. Also called transis′tor ra′dio. a transistorized radio.

tran·sis·tor

(trăn-zĭs′tər)
An electronic device that controls the flow of an electric current and is used as an amplifier or switch. Transistors consist of three layers of semiconductor material connected to an electric circuit. In some transistors, the outer layers have an excess of electrons; in others, the middle layer has more electrons. Transistors work like gates, allowing or closing off the flow of electrons when an electric current or voltage is applied to a particular layer. Because of their tiny size and increased efficiency, transistors have replaced electron tubes in most electronic devices.

transistor

- A blend of transfer and resistor.
