Title: PN-JUNCTION DIODE WITH MULTIPLE CONTACTS AND ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER USING IT
Abstract:
The idea is that we can determine Analog Values and use them as a Digital Values in a simple way by using "one Diode" and adjust it to take advantage of the "Depletion-Region" In this case we can build any electronic circuit by using Different Voltages method instead of (0-1) Circuits. Applying this Idea and using this new electronic pieces will enable us to build smaller, faster electronic circuits with better performance and lower cost. For example, Storage device will store more than one number "0, 1, 2, 3, etc." in each storage unit depending on the accuracy of manufacture, while current storage device can store only one values (1 or 0), the new electronic circuits allow us to store more information in storage units less in size and quantity also. This application of the new electronic piece will enable us to use Different Voltages method and replace the conventional method (0-1) circuits. There are many other usages and applications, for instance we can use it in all logic circuits as Processor or any other circuit use (0-1) and convert it to circuits use the Different Voltages method to make data processing.
