Solid State

Electronic components and circuits where signals pass through solid semiconductor material such as transistors and diodes as opposed to vacuum tubes where signals pass through a vacuum, or relays, which are electromechanical devices. “Solid State” was a big buzzword in the early 1970’s because solid state equipment was not only less expensive, but often thought to be more reliable in the field than the tube based predecessors.
