Description

Course Description Icon

Vacuum tubes were made based on the same technology as the first electric bulb

1939, the earliest use of vacuum tubes in the U.S. was by John Atanasoff in the unisted state in Iowa.

Vacuum tubes were became the fundamental element of electronic binary digital computers.

During this lesson we learn about Alan Turing and the Atanasoff–Berry computer (ABC Computer), considered to be the first vacuum tube computer.
