Speaker: David Dale BSc CEng MIET MIEEE
Discovery of the transistor in 1947 and its development changed the world in which we live. Since the 1950’s, firstly as discrete devices and then in integrated circuits, transistors have become all pervasive in every form of equipment. From the few transistors used in the original transistorised radios up to today’s integrated circuit processors that contain hundreds of millions of transistors, used in mobile phones and personal computers. In this joint IET/IOP talk David Dale will describe how transistor action came to be discovered at Bell labs and its subsequent development, illustrated by a basic description of transistor type’s operation. The personalities and companies involved will also be discussed. Refreshments from 6:30pm, talk begins 7:00pm. Attendance is free and non-members are welcome, but please register ahead of the event via IET’s website
