1987.0487.083 Texas Instruments Collection Object

Rectifier - 1961
TI number: G00354

This device was built in September, 1961,(date code 136) and was of type used in the nuclear control system on the Polaris submarines. A ceramic disk is used to isolate the device package from the mounting stud.

This device type was manufactured by TI for only one Navy order. The very limited market, with another supplier having the device with a ceramic header did not justify TI continuing to build it.
