English term or phrase: pull-up resistor
Definition from Sealevel Systems, Inc.:
A resistor used to pull a logic input "up" to the high state, or logic-1 state, thus preventing a disconnected input from floating into an undetermined state.

Example sentence(s):
  • Without an internal pull-up enabled in our circuit, the button would be "floating" when open and ground when pushed. We want it to be a digital high when open. We need the pull-up resistor. Micah Carrick
  • Once again, modern parts require lower currents, but if a switch seems to be unreliable, try increasing the current by reducing the value of the pull-up resistor. The errant engineer
  • So determine if parts count or cost come into play with this design, are you building 3 prototypes or 10,000 units [to determine the cost and impact of the resistor]. Next determine if the resistor is really required, check the IC logic family being used, it may or may not require a pull-up resistor. Leroy Davis
