[S/I/M] The History of the Electronics Industry- Ep.5 William Shockley and the Semiconductor

Since they are a vital element of electronic tools, Semiconductors are called the rice of the electronics market. What modifications have semiconductors offered our lives?

A vacuum tube computer ‘ENIAC’ had to do with the size of a residence. Many thanks to the innovation of a transistor, the dimension of computers was minimized to 1/300 of ENIAC’s. Later, transistors were become IC chips, allowing electronic devices to diminish and extra efficient for powerful performance.

With the evolution of semiconductors, the computer system market began to progress drastically, as well as smaller as well as high-performing digital products such as digital video cameras, MP3 gamers, and also cellphones began to show up in the 1990s.

Today, we reside in a world of ease brought by the innovation of mobile phones that can carry out multiple functions with a single tool.

What will semiconductors look like in our lives? In the video, discover the history of semiconductors that have made a substantial modification in individuals’s lives.
