Miniaturization of Electronics

  title={Miniaturization of Electronics},
  author={W. A. Atherton},
Miniaturization has made it possible for electronics to penetrate society more widely and deeply than ever before. Pocket calculators, electronic watches, miniature colour television receivers and the like are only some of the examples of the miniaturization of electronics of which the general public first became aware. Even before they came along, miniaturized electronic systems had made a significant impact in military, industrial, and commercial areas. Miniaturization helped in the…
