They make it very easy to precisely control power to a device reliably and with much greater efficiency than other methods. Another common use of transistors is their role in discrete logic.

I. INTRODUCTION Embedded SRAMs are hugely important components of modern chips. They are used in caches, register files, FIFOs, etc. The growing speed of CPU and DSP reinforces the need to design a more high performance SRAM. On the other hand handheld products such as PDA and cellular phones must very aggressively conserve power.
large conduction losses. A resonant inductor is placed in the switched capacitor circuits to limit the peak current and avoid the diode reverse-recovery problem [11, 12]. The small inductor makes the active switch turn on with zero-current switching (ZCS) condition in . When the conversion ratio is large, many switched capacitor stages are required to achieve high voltage gain, which makes the circuit complex and increases the cost. Additional inductors and diodes are placed to extend the voltage gain of the converters, where the inductors are connected in parallel to the charging path and then connected in series to the discharging path [13, 14].
As the dimensions of virtually every electronic device are pushed smaller and smaller, the ability to etch semiconductors with very small and very dense patterns becomes increasingly important. Increasing the pattern density naturally requires decreasing the lateral dimensions of the various structures etched. In order to maintain functionality at these sub-micron sizes, it is often necessary to etch structures with very large aspect ratios – on the order of 10-100. Dry etching using plasmas is the most efficient way to etch such structures; wet etch processes are crystal orientation dependent and it can be difficult if not impossible to obtain the desired aspect ratios. Etching high aspect ratio structures with plasmas offers a unique challenge; maintaining the necessarily high degree of anisotropy without succumbing to a number of different profile defects has proven difficult.
They are mediocre conductors but the important part is that that conductivity can be controlled making them ideal for computer chips and computer systems . Their properties allow for the miniaturization of computer parts, diodes, and transistors. Silicon and germanium are two very popular elements to be used as semiconductors along with various compounds that posses the unique property desired in semiconductors. The properties of semiconductors were first observed by Michael Faraday in 1833 and Karl Braun discovered and documented the first semiconductor diode effect in 1874. As the power of computers and computers chips grew so did the amount of heat produced.
So the feature of the diode- clamped multilevel inverter is high voltage rating for blocking diodes. When number of level is high enough, the harmonic content is low to avoid the need of filters and inverter efficiency is high. Numerous industrial applications have begun to require higher power apparatus in recent years. Some medium voltage motor drives and utility applications require medium voltage and megawatt power level. For a medium voltage grid, it is troublesome to connect only one power semiconductor switch directly.
Typically they are constructed of a mixture of differently doped silicon or germanium. Most common are the silicon diodes because they can operate at higher currents and junction temperatures then germanium diodes. All diodes are devices that conduct current in only one direction.

Through improved modern design techniques diodes are no longer a weak component, and are becoming more important in power electronics with the increase demand for higher power quality and power efficiency.
