Abstract:

Semiconductors are at the heart of the revolution in electronic devices during the last sixty years. Transistors are types of semiconductors, and transistors are now used by the billions in communication, computer, and other devices, having long ago replaced most vacuum tubes of earlier years. They are excellent in regulating and amplifying electrical currents. Transistors have many advantages over tubes in most applications because of their small size, reliability, efficiency, and low cost. Semiconductor technology has boosted the intellectual power of humans much as the steam engine improved their physical capabilities. And just as the steam engine was probably the
