Reading time: 2 minute MECIPT-1 was designed and built at the Polytechnic Institute of Timisoara, in 1961. The computer was made of electronic tubes and was the first electronic computer built in the university environment.
Reading time: 3 minute Romania was among the first 8 countries in the world to make an electronic computer and the second of the CAER countries. The profile industry in Romania had its own manufacture. Romania was among the top ten countries in the world to produce computers.
Reading time: <1 minut The Breadboard or Protoboard is a prototyping space generally used for the quick and easy realization of a circuit without the need to glue the wires. Breadboard applications are many, being recommended when you start learning electronics.
Reading time: 2 minute Electrotechnics has as object of study the technical applications of electrical and magnetic phenomena. These applications can be: general (such as: electrical measuring devices, electric drive motors, electric lighting installations, electrothermal installations, etc.) or specific to a certain technological process.
Reading time: <1 minut The high voltage switch can be defined as a device designed to close and open electrical circuits when they are traversed by normal operating currents, either overload or short circuit.
