An integrated-circuit filter in which the signals are represented by current levels rather than voltage levels.



Related Terms

CHARGING CURRENT

The current that flows into a capacitor when a voltage is first applied.

CURRENT DRAIN

The current taken from a voltage source by a load. Also known as drain.

A.C. CURRENT

Alternating current is a form of pulsing electricity supplied by alternators. The voltage cycles between positive and negative at a regulated frequency (cycles per second measured in Hertz).

BINARY SIGNAL

A voltage or current which carries information by varying between two possible values, corresponding to 0 and 1 in the binary system.

CURRENT GENERATOR

A two-terminal circuit element whose terminal current is independent of the voltage between its terminals.

OHM'S LAW

The law that the direct current flowing in an electric circuit is directly proportional to the voltage applied to the circuit; it is valid for metallic circuits and many circuits component that obeys Ohm's law. OHV engine See overhead-valve engine.

BREAKDOWN VOLTAGE

  1. The voltage measured at a specified current in the electrical breakdown region of a semiconductor diode. Also known as Zener voltage. 2. The voltage at which an electrical breakdown occurs in a dielectric. 3. The voltage at which an electrical breakdown occurs in a gas. Also known as breakdown potential; sparking potential; sparking voltage.

OSCILLATORY CIRCUIT

Circuit containing inductance or capacitance, or both, and resistance, connected so that a voltage impulse will produce an output current which periodically reverses or oscillates.

ELECTRODE CHARACTERISTIC

Relation between the electrode voltage and the current to an electrode, all other electrode voltages being maintained constant.

BRANCH TRANSMITTANCE

The amplification of current or voltage in a branch of an electrical network; used in the representation of brandy such a network by a signal-flow graph. Also known as branch gain.
