IEEE & EDS Information

The EDS Guide to State-of-the-Art Electron Devices celebrates over 60 years of the Electron Devices Society’s work, from its inception in 1952 as the IRE Professional Group on Electron Devices to its official formation as an IEEE society in 1976. This comprehensive, full-color publication was edited by long-standing EDS volunteer, Joachim Burghartz. In addition to the foreword by Nobel Laureate and EDS Celebrated Member George E. Smith, the book contains 21 chapters by 70 contributors. A historical timeline runs throughout the book, highlighting three key time periods/eras in the electron device field.
