The history of electronics is a story of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and of three key components—the vacuum tube , the transistor, and the integrated circuit In 1883, Thomas Alva Edison discovered that electrons flow from one metal conductor to another through a vacuum. Dropped calls” is a phrase that has popped up in force since cellular phones made the scene. This phrase is often heard in relation to cell phone service but is rarely associated with a home phone. Reliability is one factor that just can’t be argued when it comes to the advantage of landlines over mobile phones. Landlines receive much less interference than do cell phones. Even in a storm, when cell phone reception is patchy, landlines are usually going strong. The modern era of electronics originated in the early twentieth century with the invention of the electron tube. An electron tube is a … Read the rest

Have you ever wondered what all principles go behind the working of televisions or radios or computers? One advantage I didn’t see mentioned here (or maybe not as clearly as I am) is that you can have multiple extensions on a landline. This is a great advantage if you have someone stationed overseas as we do or away in school. That way when the person calls, more than 1 person can be in on the call at the same time. Can’t do that with a cell phone. Students interested in the engineering side of the field should research electronics engineering technology programs. Through courses that explore communication circuits, basic electronics, embedded controllers, physics, and more students learn to work inside the electrical engineering industry. Coursework provides student with the knowledge needed to develop, examine, and maintain the engineering of electronic equipment. Programs prepare students to work with digital microprocessor systems, … Read the rest
