, the Maximum theoretical operating temperature of silicon transistors and circuits may not exceed 200 °C, but is limited to twice the smaller values. But what if the sensors and electronics need to be placed closer to the engines where not just hot just hot? This can help the transistors of the diamond, which is from heating work better. Researchers from the famous American laboratory HRL Laboratories (owned by General Motors and Boeing) has developed a process technology of manufacturing field-effect transistors FinFET with diamond edges. Article about the work published yesterday in the journal Nature and available at this link. The experiments confirmed that the diamond transistors can operate at temperatures up to 200 °C. the Purpose of further studies the aim is to create electronic devices capable of operating at temperatures up to 1000 °C.
