Device technology

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sub-areas of device technology

The device technology is a scientific engineering field that deals with the development and design and the technical realization of assemblies and devices involved.

It is common to divide device technology into two aspects:

Regardless of these subdivisions, device technology encompasses a wide range of tasks to ensure the function, quality and service life of the devices. In particular, the electrical, thermal, mechanical and electromagnetic requirements as well as those for high reliability and recycling and environmental compatibility must be observed.

Device technology is an interdisciplinary field. The electrical / electronics is their most important branch. Further areas are optics and mechanics as well as the associated micro-technologies , which are often understood as precision engineering in their unit . Electrical engineering / electronics, including their areas of coverage for precision engineering, form the physical basis of device technology.
