From Shockley, Bardeen and Brattain to embedded systems

The invention of the transistor at Bell Labs by William B. Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain constituted the foundation of today’s electronics and computer technology, which has found its way into almost all areas of our lives.

Microelectronics deals with the development and production of integrated circuits. In embedded systems, these electronic components carry out their service for the user invisibly, e.g. in the car, medical equipment, household appliances or visibly in smartphones, for example.

The constantly higher integration of transistors on a chip makes it possible to realize more and more complex applications. As a result, the requirements of electrical engineers who develop such applications increase.
