continuous effort of man to understand the mysteries of the electron resulted
in a time of discoveries and inventions without any precedent in history.
The progress of electronics undoubtedly exerted a strong impact on society as a whole, from a simple transistor radio, color television, high speed computers, and space exploration and, more recently, shortening the communication with the Internet.
Since Marconi, with his first transatlantic wireless transmission, to the small and complex integrated circuit, inventions and discoveries have emerged in the twentieth century, embodied not only by great curiosity and also the innate need of communication between men.
Thus, AGE OF ELECTRON - 100 YEARS OF PROGRESS IN ELECTRONICS, consists of a series of articles whose purpose is to address in a succinct and objective aspects of the main chapters that make up the history of this great scientific-technological revolution.
