  • Vacuum tubes appeared at the break of the 20th century, giving birth to electronics [1]. By the 1930s, they had become established as a mature technology, spreading into areas such as radio communications, longdistance radiotelegraphy, radio broadcasting, telephone communication and switching, sound recording and playing, television, radar, and air navigation [2]. During World War II, vacuum tubes were used in the first electronic computers, which were built in the United Kingdom and the United… CONTINUE READING
