Abstract

Enhanced conduction doped insulators are disposed between two conductive elements to form a high impedance resistor. This type of resistor is particularly useful in field-effect transistor circuits as a load resistor, or as a pull-up resistor to avoid floating nodes, also to improve impedance control, and for non-linear powering of selected devices. Enhanced conduction doped insulators are described in U. S. Patents 3,972,059 and 4,104,675.
