Series 10 Integrated Circuit Engineering Collection GOVERNMENT

 

Description:

It has been a longstanding precedent in the U.S. semiconductor community that the Military Aerospace business becomes good business only when there is no mainframe computer/commercial industrial business available. This was evidenced during the recessions of 1958, 1964, 1968, 1970 and the slowdown of 1975.

ICE had and continues to have Government contracts from the Departments of Defense, Energy and NASA. Within these contracts are the released (formerly proprietary, confidential and coded) products. The government code name was TASC, which is the finding aid to the coded numbers for specific contracts ICE held with the Government.

There is an in-depth publication, Integrated Circuit Military/Aerospace Marketing and procurement Reference manual, 1978 which was released in the 1990s concerning the protocols, arrangements, programs, contracts and investigations which ICE provided the US Government concerning all possibilities regarding VHSI (very high speed integration), the next generation of military/aerospace microcircuits and the microprocessor status report by RADC (Rome Air Defense Center).

Specific to the TASC contracts were United States' Government requests of market analysis concerning Harris Semiconductor, Intersil, Siliconix, RCA, Precision Monolithics, Inc., Analog Devices, and Intel.

ICE was mandated to publish the initial documents on beige paper stock, the other colors were sky blue, salmon, green and white. These other colors denoted lesser importance than beige.

NMAH Archive Center notes to aid your research: The TASC code numbers have been recorded, the material has been rehoused in 32 document boxes and the boxes have been numerically indexed. These contracts/papers have been cataloged within the bulk of the collection and all are referred to as TASC. There are 22 shipping boxes of coded material. Codes are 0000 raw materials & Chemicals through 4390 Technical Articles.
