Holding back the tide
Imagine a transistor as a dam across a river. The purpose of the transistor-cum-dam is to turn on and off the flow of water (the electrical current) downstream from a reservoir (a battery) above. A large quantity of water in the reservoir will exert a large pressure (voltage) on the transistor-cum-dam
Sector Focussed Reporting
Old-fashioned transistor dams are made out of regular concrete (silicon), which is ten times less strong than a new reinforced concrete (silicon carbide - SiC). As we replace the transistor dams made of concrete (Si) with those made of reinforced concrete (SiC), the extra strength allows the dam wall (the amount of semiconductor used) to be ten times thinner, while withstanding the same pressure (voltage) as the old transistor dams.
