This is a list of vacuum tubes or thermionic valves , and low-pressure gas-filled tubes , or discharge tubes. Before the advent of semiconductor devices, thousands of tube types were used in consumer electronics. Many industrial, military or otherwise professional tubes were also produced. Only a few types are still used today, mainly in high-power, high-frequency applications. Receiving tubes have heaters or filaments intended for direct battery operation, parallel operation off a dedicated winding on a supply transformer, or series string operation on transformer-less sets. High-power RF power tubes are directly heated; the heater voltage must be much smaller than the signal voltage on the grid and is therefore in the In some valve part number series, the voltage class of the heater is given in the part number, and a similar valve might be available with several different heater voltage ratings. The system assigned numbers with the base form “1A21”, and is therefore also referred to as the “1A21 system”.
