Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry
TERMS, DEFINITIONS, AND LETTER SYMBOLS FOR DISCRETE SEMICONDUCTOR AND OPTOELECTRONIC DEVICES
A revised and significantly expanded reference for technical writers and educators, manufacturers, buyers and users of discrete semiconductor and optoelectronic devices, is now available. This document includes extensive information on: letter symbol conventions; diodes and rectifiers (including signal, rectifier, microwave, tunnel and backward, voltage-regulator, voltage-reference, current regulator, and varactor diodes); transistors (including FETs, JFETs, and IGBTs); photosensitive devices, photoemitters, and optocouplers; thyristors and PUTs; and transient voltage suppressors. Terms and symbols, with their definitions, are arranged alphabetically by product type. Where applicable, graphical symbols are also included. The purpose of this standard is to promote the uniform use of symbols, abbreviations, terms, and definitions throughout the semiconductor industry.
