The Most Efficient Way to Make Transistors
The Planar Process
FAIRCHILD CAMERA & INSTRUMENT CORP.


The Planar Process

The planar transistor can amplify current about thirty times. All of its components lie within a horizontal plane, protected by an insulating layer of silicon dioxide (invisible to the naked eye). The mauve region is the base, the inner green ring the emitter, and the surrounding green sea the collector. The central cream-colored plug and the teardrop-shaped ring are aluminum connectors (shown here without attached wires). Actual size: 0.06 inches in diameter.
