Fender, Clarence Leonidas "Leo" (1909-1991) American inventor and entrepreneur who founded the Fender Electric Instrument Company in 1946 and invented the legendary Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars.Fender-Rhodes Nickname for the Rhodes electro-mechanical piano as manufactured by Fender, invented by Harold Rhodes in the '50s. Any of a group of nonmetallic, ceramic-like, usually ferromagnetic compounds of ferric oxide with other oxides, especially such a compound characterized by extremely high electrical resistivity and used in computer memory elements, permanent magnets, and various solid-state devices. Iron that has not combined with carbon, occurring commonly in steel, cast iron, and pig iron below 910°C. A small toroidal shaped part made from a mixture of iron, nickel and zinc oxides used to suppress EMI in audio and other electronic equipment.[AHD] After announcing that a new source of energy was possible by moving a magnet in a coil of wire, many declared him a fraud.Faraday responded with his memorable words: "Nothing is too wonderful to be true, if it be consistent with the laws of nature." See Faraday's Magnetic Field Induction Experiment. far-end Teleconferencing term meaning the distant location of transmission; the other end of the telephone line, as opposed to your end (known as the near-end).
[AHD] [After Michael Faraday.] Faraday, Michael (1791-1867) British physicist and chemist who discovered electromagnetic induction (1831) and proposed the field theory later developed by Maxwell and Einstein.far-field or far sound field The sound field distant enough from the sound source so the SPL decreases by 6 d B for each doubling of the distance from the source (inverse square law). Farmborough Festival A 3-day country music festival located on Randall's Island, next to Manhattan and the Bronx in NY City—a first. The solution is implemented sequentially in the time domain.[IEEE] Considered easy to understand and easy to implement in software it is a popular technique. feedback The return of a portion of the output of a process or system to the input, especially when used to maintain performance or to control a system or process.FET (field-effect transistor) A three-terminal transistor device where the output current flowing between the source and drain terminals is controlled by a variable electric field applied to the gate terminal.The gate design determines the type of FET: either JFET (junction FET) or MOSFET (metal-oxide semiconductor FET).
