For those of you unfamiliar with electronics, the circular image above is the schematic symbol for a transistor, the basic switching element in modern electronics. Transistors have limits built into them, mostly having to do with how much electricity they can switch, and if you exceed those limits, you can get very interesting failures. I've experienced a few of them in my garage, and the logo commemerates them.

The equation at the bottom describes one way to make a transistor catch on fire. Pedants will notice that this isn't technically a condition of second breakdown, but I'm using that for a team name anyway: it describes the transistors, the robot and sometimes even the builder.
