More recently, new designs and manufacturing techniques havebeen developed to produce a more complicated, three-dimensional gate structure. Thesetransistors are identified by various manufactures as HEXFET, VMOS, or DMOS, depend-ing on the geometry of the gate structure: respectively hexagonal, V-shaped, or D-shaped.They feature power dissipations exceeding 100 W and excellent high-frequency operation.In contrast to the normal MOSFET, these devices have a much larger forward transconduc-tance. These devices thus feature very high current gain at both high frequency and highpower, a combination that is hard to obtain with traditional bipolar power transistors.5.10Multiple Transistor CircuitsIntegrated circuit technology has largely eliminated the need to fabricate multiple transistorcircuits from discrete transistors.
