CURRENT, merc. law. A term used to express present time; the current month; i.e. the present month. Price current, is the ordinary price at the time spoken of. A printed paper, containing such prices, is also called a price current.
     2. Current, in another sense, signifies that which is readily received; as, current money.

Caption: FIGURE 15: Control currents and rotor displacements in radial directions: saturation current is 20 A.
The PG0035 and PG0036 have a maximum DCR of 93 milliohms, a saturation current rating of 6 ADC, and a heating current rating of 3 ADC.
This includes inductance ranging from 0.10 to 47 microhenries, current ratings from 575 to 3,100 milliamperes, and saturation current up to 4,500 milliamps.
The others increase with temperature, such as the short-circuit current, which slightly increases, and the reverse saturation current which increases exponentially [11-14].
The thin oxide layer is effective for reducing the reverse saturation current and thus improves the device property [19].
By working with [DELTA][V.sub.BE] instead of [V.sub.BE], [I.sub.S]--the reverse-bias saturation current in the Shockley diode equation--is eliminated in the math, as shown in equation 1.
But the reverse saturation current varies dynamically with respect to irradiance.
where [I.sub.0] is the reverse saturation current, and [V.sub.T] = kT/q is the temperature voltage ([V.sub.T] [approximately equal to] 26 mV at room temperature).
This is part of a family of ultra-low-noise, dual JFETs positioned to provide users better-performing, wider bandwidths and cheaper solutions for obtaining tighter IDSS (drain-source saturation current) matching and better thermal tracking than matching individual JFETs.
