This Thursday evening at Pine Trees we welcome David Dale along to speak about the history and development of the transistor. David, you will remember, is the chap who very kindly donated all those components and books to the club a few months ago.
David spent a number of years working for GEC semiconductors, leaving in 1998. Before retirement, he was on the Swindon committee of the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology – previously IEE) and gave this presentation to the IET in 2012.
The development of the transistor is a fascinating one and the component has revolutionised electronic design over the last 60 years or so, allowing smaller and cheaper designs to be produced.
David Dale has a wealth of experience in this field, so please join us from 7pm on Thursday the 9th February at Pine Trees to see his presentation.
