Transistors – Tim

Transistors are devices that control the movement of electricity through a circuit. They work something like a water faucet, not only do they start and stop the flow of a current, but they also control the amount of the current. 48 more words


Future of Transistors and Microprocessors

“In 1958, Jack Kilby built the first integrated circuit flip-flop with two transistors at Texas Instruments. In 2008, Intel’s Itanium microprocessor contained more than 2 billion transistors and a 16 Gb Flash memory contained more than 4 billion transistors. 658 more words


Incubator for the electronics of the future - Rotronic Success Story

No extraneous sounds, vibrations or electromagnetic fields find their way into the noise-free lab at the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center in Rüschlikon. Moreover, a temperature sensor ensures that experiments on new switching elements for computer chips are not affected by temperature fluctuations.  426 more words


Generations of Computer

First Generation (1940-1956) Vacuum Tubes

The first computers used vacuum tubes for circuitry and magnetic drums for memory, and were often enormous, taking up entire rooms. 1,054 more words
