September 2016 – Top 10 Commercial Products Semiconductors Are Used In

Published on: 07/09/2016

Semiconductor devices form the backbone of industrial power control applications.

Solid state semiconductor technology has shaped our modern world to the point where even our everyday white goods and automobile products are now controlled through the switching and regulation of power devices.

Top 10 Commercial Products Semiconductors Are Used In

A semiconductor’s ability to precisely control its electrical properties and behaviour during its manufacturing process is what makes the component so vital today. Semiconductor properties are controlled by adding small amounts of impurities (doping), with the different impurities and concentrations producing different effects.
