Describes the interrelations between information theory and semiconductor technology in the different phases of their development with a special emphasis on their applications in telecommunication technology. The elements of information theory are outlined as well as its special subjects, i.e. source coding (data reduction) and channel coding (redundant coding for the error correction). The development of semiconductor technology is surveyed with particular emphasis on the LSI- and VLSI-technology.
