D.E.V.I.C.E. is an encyclopedia of terms used by manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. T&M Atlantic created this service to better explain the functionality of instruments it offers, and to highlight the latest developments in the world of measurement equipment. We are using such tools as animation to bring words and pictures to life and to create not just an understanding but also an appreciation for technology that goes into the design of every instrument.

On March 10, 1876 Alexander Bell used the first telephone in Boston to call Thomas Watson who was in another room but out of earshot. He said: "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you". And Watson soon appeared at his side.
This day is considered the first when a person, having picked up the telephone receiver, heard the words addressed to him.
