Building a Transistor Curve Tracer

paulv @ paulvdiyblogs.net designed and build a transistor curve tracer and documents the process on his personal blog. He writes: It's not that I use a Curve Tracer that much, but if you want to categorize or really measure the parameters of a discrete component, there is really no...

Two bits per transistor: high-density ROM in Intel’s 8087 floating point chip

Ken Shirriff has a detailed write-up about the multi-level ROM in Intel’s 8087 floating point chip: The 8087 chip provided fast floating point arithmetic for the original IBM PC and became part of the x86 architecture used today. One unusual feature of the 8087 is it contained a...

Surrounding Gate Transistors – Price + Size + Performance

Intel co-founder Gordon Moore predicted in 1965 that the number of transistors per silicon chip would double every two years. This came to be known as Moore´s Law which has been proven accurate for the last fifty years. Many scientists argue that the law is soon to be broken because of...
