One of the things that has always been comfortable about the engineering profession was that it lived within a well-defined domain. But that is about to change because developments in monolithic electro-optical systems design are threatening to upset this orderly world.

Electronics engineers design circuits using transistors and passive components in which voltage or current changes carry information. And digital designers live in a world in which it is assumed that there are pre-defined circuits that exactly implement abstract logic functions so they can focus on combinatorial and sequential design in nearly complete innocence of the underlying electronics.

New branches of physical science that are not even taught to today's electronics graduates are becoming significant. One obvious example is provided by the explosion in monolithic optical devices.

Photodiodes have been around for a long time, particularly to provide the sensory element in CCD arrays. There has also been th ...more

Electronics is actually related to the motion of electrons ( electron dyanamics) .
it constitutes the study of all those devices or more aptly ,processes where electrons move under controlled conditions to give desired results.

Electronics is the study of the flow of charge through various materials and devices such as, semiconductors, resistors, inductors, capacitors, nano-structures, and vacuum tubes. All applications of electronics involve the transmission of either information or power. Although considered to be a theoretical branch of physics, the design and construction of electronic circuits to solve practical problems is an essential technique in the fields of electronics engineering and computer engineering.

The study of new semiconductor devices and surrounding technology is sometimes considered a branch of physics. This article focuses on engineering aspects of electronics. Other important topics include electronic waste and occupational health impacts of semiconductor manufacturing.

The concept of electronics is used about electronic components, integrated circuits and electronic systems. 30 years ago, no one has ever thought of the expansive growth of the electronics-, information- and communication technology we have seen the last decades. Our new digital life is built on the development of miniaturized electronic circuits (microchips) and broadband telephone- and data transmission through optical fiber and wireless networks.

The computer has been a common tool both at work and at home. By continued miniaturization of digital electronic components and circuits, the PC and other advanced electronics have been commercially available for people in general. The capacity of the computers almost doubles every year. This expansion is achievable because of tighter packaging of the components onto the microchip. But as we get closer to the atomic limit where each component on the microchip is just a few atom lengths, we need innovative developments for the future.
