    • ‘The coherent light beams could lead to ultrafast computer circuitry that transmits data optically.’
    • ‘All electronic circuitry and devices have an inherent noise due to the flow of current in them.’
    • ‘The source uses two or more electrodes for ionization and control, and solid state circuitry for operation.’
    1. 1.1A circuit or system of circuits performing a particular function in an electronic device.
      ‘switching circuitry’
      • ‘The electrical circuitry on the drive can be compromised.’
      • ‘It did not contain any circuitry to limit damaging electrical spikes, so it is quite unsuitable for use with a computer.’
