Flatpack Headers Display
TI number: G00279

This display contains a variety of metal flat-pack headers.

This display was built to illustrate the wide variety of metal flat-pack headers built in Hermetic Seals for use by the Semiconductor Group in producing integrated circuits and multichip transistors and diodes. "Masked" and "unmasked" refer to the gold plating on the internal base. Variations in the internal spacing was to allow for different size bars (chips) to minimize bond wire length. This display probably was built in the mid 1960's.
