These components are used as very fast
switches in digital logic circuits. Transistors are normally so small that hundreds of thousands fit on one processing chip on a computer motherboard. The types of transistors used in school projects are normally large enough to fit on the end of a small finger. However, the way they switched on and off is the same (click here for transistor information sheets) . When a transistor is switched on it produces a ‘1’ and when it is switched off it produces a ‘0’. Transistors in the circuit of a computer microprocessor can switch on and off thousands of times per second. Without the invention of the transistor, computer processing power would be very limited and slow. Two basic examples of simple transistor driven logic (AND / OR) circuits are shown below.
This is an AND gate circuit and it can be made quite easily. The example shown is built from a modular electronics kit. Both switches ‘A’ and ‘B’ must be pressed together for the bulb to light. If you construct this circuit, you may need to alter the value of the resistors. This will depend on the type of transistors used and whether to bulb or an LED is used.
866. Either switch ‘A’ or ‘B’ must be pressed for the bulb to light. which was reversed when AMD applied their own die shrink and added an on-die L2 cache to the Athlon. Intel released Pentium IIIs running at speeds of 750.18 μm fabrication process. resulting in an "EB" suffix. the Coppermine held a slight advantage over the Athlons it was released against. 850. 900. An additional "B" was later appended to designate 133 MHz FSB models. 650. codenamed Coppermine (Intel product code: 80526). but in practical terms there was . while the Coppermine could perform better when SSE optimizations were used. The switches do not have to be pressed together. 600. Both 100 MHz FSB and 133 MHz FSB models were made. 533. Coppermine A 900 MHz Coppermine Pentium III. Athlon held the advantage in floating-point intensive code. running at 500. In terms of overall performance. was released on 25 October 1999. 933 and 1000 MHz (1 GHz). The second version. 550. 700. An "E" was appended to the model name to indicate cores using the new 0. From December 1999 to May 2000.TThis is an OR gate circuit. 667. and 733 MHz. 800.
but it greatly assisted in holding the heatsink flat against the die.18 µm process. The Coppermine was packaged in a 370-pin FC-PGA for use with Socket 370. clock-for-clock. Earlier Coppermines without the IHS made heatsink mounting challenging. However. The enthusiast community went so far as to create shims to assist in maintaining a flat interface. 1.little difference in how the two chips performed. which makes it most similar to the Mobile Celeron Coppermine-128 processor. Microsoft's Xbox game console uses a variant of the Pentium III/Mobile Celeron family in a Micro-PGA2 form factor.1 GHz and 1. finally removing some well-known pipeline stalls. effective cooling.  Coppermine T . Although its codename gives the impression that it used copper interconnects. Intel needed at least six months to resolve the problems using a new cD0 stepping and re-released 1.0 GHz model. Intel re-worked the internals.2 GHz before the launch of the Pentium 4. Major improvements introduced with the Coppermine were an on-chip L2 cache (which Intel called an Advanced Transfer Cache. and specifically validated platforms. its interconnects were in fact aluminium. 128 KB L2 cache. It shares with the Coppermine-128 Celeron its 133 MT/s front side bus. If the heatsink was not flat against the die. with the 1. reaching speeds of 1.13 GHz speed without various tweaks to the processor's microcode. Tom's Hardware attributed this performance deficit to relaxed tuning of the CPU and motherboard to improve stability. The sSpec designator of the chips is SL5Sx. similar to what AMD did with the "Thunderbird" Athlon to ensure that the heatsink was mounted flatly. and 180 nm process technology. or ATC) and better pipelining. heat transfer efficiency was greatly reduced. improving performance significantly. since it added another layer of metal and thermal paste between the die and the heatsink. Early versions have an exposed die. Intel only officially supported the processor on its own VC820 i820-based motherboard.13 GHz versions in 2001. The ATC operates at the core clock rate and has a capacity of 256 KB.13 GHz version was released in mid-2000 but famously recalled after a collaboration between HardOCP and Tom's Hardware discovered various instabilities with the operation of the new CPU speed grade. The result was that applications affected by these pipeline stalls ran faster on the Coppermine by up to 30%. The Coppermine contained 29 million transistors and was fabricated in a 0.75 V vs.65 V). additional voltage (1. These features resulted in a cache with a lower latency relative to Katmai. The Coppermine core was unable to reliably reach the 1. whereas later versions have an integrated heat spreader (IHS) to improve contact between the die and the heatsink.13 GHz CPU equalling a 1. It is eight-way set-associative and is accessed via a 256-bit bus. A 1. but even this motherboard displayed instability in the independent tests of the hardware review sites. AMD were able to clock the Athlon higher. Under competitive pressure from the AMD Athlon. Some heatsink manufacturers began providing pads on their products. performance was shown to be sub-par. This in itself did not improve thermal conductivity. In benchmarks that were stable.
