A material used to prevent the leakage of electricity from a conductor and to provide mechanical spacing or support as protection against accidental contact with the conductor  .
The resistance offered by an insulating material to current leakage .
(1) A circuit in which many elements are fabricated and interconnected by a single process (into a single chip), as opposed to a "nonintegrated" circuit in which the transistors, diodes, resistors, and other components are fabricated separately and then assembled . (2) Elements inseparably associated and formed on or within a single substrate .
In communications any signal that conveys information (voice, teletypewriter,
INTENSITY (OF SOUND)—The measurement of the amplitude of sound energy. Generally synonymous with loudness .
