ACROSS 3 Term derived from "transfer resistor." Semiconductor device that can be used as an amplifier or as an electronic sw itch. 5 The unw anted formation of a conductive path of solder betw een conductors. 8 A protective device in the current path that melts or breaks w hen current exceeds a predetermined maximum value. 9 An electrical device used to store electrical charge. 10 Tool w ith an internal heating element used to heat surfaces being soldered to the point w here the solder becomes molten. 11 The process of applying a thin coat of solder to materials prior to their being soldered; for example, application of a light coat of solder to the filaments of a conductor to hold the filaments in place prior to soldering the conductor. 13 Process of joining tw o metallic surfaces to make an electrical contact by melting solder (usually tin and lead) across them. 15 Electronic test equipment that can perform multiple tasks. Typically one capable of measuring voltage, current, and resistance. More sophisticated modern digital multimeters also measure capacitance, inductance, current gain of transistors, and/or anything else that can be measured electronically. 16 A solder connection that exhibits poor w etting and is characterized by a grayish, porous appearance due to excessive impurities in the solder, inadequate cleaning prior to soldering, and/or the insufficient application of heat during the soldering process. 18 A tw o terminal device that conducts in only one direction. 19 Component made of material that opposes flow of current and therefore has some value of resistance. 20 Metallic alloy of tin and lead that is used to join tw o metal surfaces. 21 Abbreviation of System International, a system of practical units based on the meter, kilogram, second, ampere, Kelvin, mole, and candela. 22 An array of seven independently controlled lightemitting diodes (LED) or liquid crystal display (LCD) elements, shaped like a figure-8, w hich can be used to display decimal digits and other characters by turning on the appropriate elements.

DOWN 1 An IC package similar to a DIP, but smaller, w hich is designed for automatic placement and soldering on the surface of a circuit board. 2 Insulating board containing conductive tracks for circuit connections. 4 A floating point system in w hich numbers are expressed as products consisting of a number greater than one multiplied by an appropriate pow er of ten that is some multiple of three. 6 A square IC package w ith leads on all four sides designed for surface mounting on a circuit board. 7 Numbers entered as a number from one to ten multiplied by a pow er of ten. 12 Coding system of colored stripes on a resistor to indicate the resistor's value and tolerance. 14 A very common IC package w ith tw o parallel row s of pins intended to be inserted into a socket of through holes drilled in a printed circuit board. 17 An electronic device that conducts current in one direction only and illuminates w hen it is conducting.
