    () (Master INS3I, ULCO)


La micro-informatique, apparue durant les années 1970, notamment grâce à la création du microprocesseur par Intel, a permis le développement de nombreuses applications et nouvelles technologies que nous utilisons désormais tous les jours. L'apparition de ces technologies est due à la miniaturisation des composants. C'est pourquoi il est important d'étudier le rôle de la miniaturisation des composants dans l'évolution de la micro-informatique afin de comprendre comment sont apparues ces nouvelles applications et quels sont leurs effets sur notre mode de vie. Micro-informatics, which appeared during the 1970s, especially thanks to the creation of the microprocessor by Intel, induced the development of new applications and technologies which are used every day by many people. The development of these technologies is due to the components' miniaturization. This is the reason why it is important to study the role of this miniaturization in the evolution of micro informatics in order to understand how these new applications appeared and how they affect our world.
