Semiconductors and Intel, an Introduction

Key Points

  • Semiconductors are the foundation of modern technology. Billions of connected devices on the planet would not function without them. Semiconductors are probably the most complex products manufactured in the world, yet they’re often as small as a fingernail. They are packed with billions of microscopic switches, called “transistors,” that make them work.

  • Semiconductors are essential for the operation of all modern electronic devices.
