Jaeger Travis N. Blalock Jaeger/Blalock 4/15/07 Microelectronic Circuit Design, 3E McGraw-Hill Chap 1 - 2 Chapter Goals • Explore the history of electronics. • Quantify the impact of integrated circuit technologies. • Describe classiFcation of electronic signals. • Review circuit notation and theory. • Introduce tolerance impacts and analysis. • Describe problem solving approach Jaeger/Blalock 4/15/07 Microelectronic Circuit Design, 3E McGraw-Hill Chap 1 - 3 The Start of the Modern Electronics Era Bardeen, Shockley, and Brattain at Bell Labs - Brattain and Bardeen invented the bipolar transistor in 1947. The Frst germanium bipolar transistor. Roughly 50 years later, electronics account for 10% (4 trillion dollars) of the world GDP.
