Semiconductors in Wired Communications

July 24, 2017 , Industry
Wired communications can be traced back to 1844, when Samuel Morse (creator of the code of dots and dashes that bears his name) sent the first telegraph message from the U.S. Supreme Court chambers in Washington, D.C. to the Mount Clair railway depot in Baltimore, Maryland. Fourteen years later, the first transatlantic telegraph cable was completed. Alexander Graham Bell’s famous first telephone call transformed communication again, moving from dots and dashes over the wires to voice. The first telephone line was set up in 1877 in Boston, Massachusetts, but it wasn’t until 1956 that the first transatlantic telephone cable was launched. As wired communications have continued to advance, semiconductors are playing an important role in enabling the new technologies that keep us connected.
