Advantages and disadvantages of semiconductor over other devices


  • These are smaller in size
  • Long life compared to vacuum tubes.
  • Operated on low DC power
  • Accuracy is high compared to vacuum tubes
  • Noise is less
  • Warm up is not needed in semiconductors.


  • Cannot withstand for high power.
  • Frequency range of operation is low.
  • produces less output power.
  • Accuracy changes with the temperature.
  • Low ambient temperature.
