### F

#### FLAT PACK

An IC package [14].
 Keyword(s): FLAT PACK

#### FLEMING VALVE

An earlier name for a diode, or a two-electrode vacuum tube used as a detector [6].
 Keyword(s): FLEMING VALVE

#### FLEXIBLE COAXIAL LINE

A line made with an inner conductor that consists of flexible wire insulated from the outer conductor by a solid, continuous insulating material [10].

 Keyword(s): FLEXIBLE COAXIAL LINE

#### FLIP CHIP

A monolithic IC packaging technique that eliminates the need for bonding wires [14].
 Keyword(s): FLIP CHIP

#### FLIP-FLOP

A device having two stable states and two input terminals (or types of input signals), each of which corresponds with one of the two states. The circuit remains in either state until caused to change to the other state by application of a voltage pulse. A similar bistable device with an input that allows it
to act as a single-stage binary counter [13].

 Keyword(s): FLIP-FLOP

#### FLUX

(1) In electrical or electromagnetic devices, a general term used to designate collectively all the electric or magnetic lines of force in a region [1]. (2) A solution that removes surface oxides from metals being soldered [2] [14].

 Keyword(s): FLUX

#### FLUX DENSITY

The number of magnetic lines of force passing through a given area [1].
 Keyword(s): FLUX DENSITY

#### FLYWHEEL EFFECT

The ability of a resonant circuit to operate continuously because of stored energy or energy pulses [9].

 Keyword(s): FLYWHEEL EFFECT

#### FOCUSING ANODE

An electrode of a CRT that is used to focus the electrons into a tight beam [6].
 Keyword(s): FOCUSING ANODE

#### FOLDED DIPOLE

An ordinary half-wave antenna (dipole) that has one or more additional conductors connected across the ends parallel to each other [10].

 Keyword(s): FOLDED DIPOLE
