This is the story of electronics, inventions that produced it and inventors who discovered, enlightened, and innovated. It began with wireless telegraphy and radio. Semiconductors were found to work in detectors and amplifiers. The metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect-transistor, MOSFET, in integrated circuits, whole circuits on a chip, enabled size reduction of a million times in one century.
