/trans'keuhn duk"teuhns/, n. Electronics.
1. the ratio of a small change in anode current of an electron tube at a certain level of output to the corresponding small change of control-electrode voltage, usually expressed in mhos or micromhos.
2. (loosely) the amplification factor of a tube divided by its anode resistance.
