These heart pace circuits were built for Medtronic in the 1970's using Medtronic circuit designs. The two complete units show mid 1973 production.

One of the circuits, representing the earlier designs, used chip and wire construction. The others used beam leads for discrete and IC's. Earlier production used solder sealed packages, and later production used seam weld sealing. The collection contains 4 units without lids and two units with lids.
