TECHDAY 30 June Transistors are presented

On this TECHDAY in history, in 1948, the first point-contact transistor was publicly demonstrated by Bell Labs during a press conference in New York. The transistor represented a significant advance in technology and through its development in the following years, it would eventually replace the vacuum tube, the primary method of controlling electronic circuitry at the time. The use of transistors allowed the development of microchips and the integrated circuit technology. They, in turn, were vital to the rapid advance of electronic and computerized technology of the past decades.
