Semiconductor


A
semiconductor

is a material that has electrical
conductivity between those of a conductor and an
insulator.


Semiconductor devices include the transistors, many
kinds of diodes and digital and analog integrated
circuits.


The most common devices that use
semiconductor devices are laptops, PCs, cell
phones, calculators, flash drives, digital cameras,
radios, and MRIs etc.


The most common material that used in
semiconductor is Silicon.

istory


Toshiba was founded by the merging of two companies,
Tanaka Seizosho and Hakunetsusha, Tokyo, Japan, in
1939.


Tanaka Engineering Works, was Japan's first
manufacturer of telegraph equipment.


Hakunetsusha was Japan's first producer of incandescent
electric lamps.


1970, Toshiba started expending strongly by acquiring
many heavy engineering and primary industry firms.


In 1987, Toshiba was accused of illegally selling CNC
milling machines used to produce very quiet submarine
propellers to the Soviet Union.


In 2004, Toshiba announced it would discontinue
manufacturing traditional in
-
house cathode ray tube
televisions.


In 2008 Toshiba announced that it was to drop its format
in the HD DVD.

Current Profile
