Progress in Electronics 1949-1959

Areas of electronics surveyed in this paper are radio communication, analog and digital computer technology, instrumentation, and automation. While these subjects represent the most flourishing research and industrial activity in the last ten years in the Western World and in the U.S.S.R., progress along these lines in Communist China is relatively slow compared with her progress in other fields. This is understandable, since heavy industry and agriculture obviously must play a more dominant role than electronics in the early stages of planned industrialization. However, the high quality of technical publication as well as some interesting discussions with the Chinese delegations during the first International Federation for Automatic Control (IFAC) at Moscow in 1960 indicate that remarkable progress was made in the late 1950's.

In the field of electronics and related subjects there are about seven periodicals, according to the listing of the Chiao Liu Publication Service in Hong Kong. Of these, five Tien Shih Chieh (Electrical World), Wu Hsien Tien (Wireless), Tien Ch'i Kung Yeh (Electrical Industry), Jen Min Tien Hsin (People's Communication), and Tien Hsin Chi Shu T'ung Hsün (Electric Communication Correspondence) may be considered popular type periodicals devoted to introductory work. The remaining two, Tien Hsin K'o Hsüeh (Telecommunication Science) and Tzu T'ung Hua (Automation), may be considered the important outlets for their research as well as for interchange of technical information at higher levels.
