1987.0487.060 Texas Instruments Collection Object

Integrated Circuit - 1963-4
TI number: G00392

This boxed set contains an open and a sealed IC representing probable late 1963 or early 1964 production. SN022 indicates a special device type, possibly from the SN51 family. Without opening, it is not known if both are the same type.

Aluminum-Gold lead pattern not on grid. The chip still had the curved interconnects but all bonding pads are shown on the edge of the chip. Downhill bonding to the package leads was typical of the early package designs, resulting in a potential problem of the wire shorting to the chip.
