Represents early 1954 effort to improve production methods by group fabrication.

Multiple germanium bars were fused to platinum strips with a Au-Ge die and platinum wire fused to bar junction with indium dot in single furnace operation. Bar units were cut apart and mounted on the header by welding. This process provided improved productivity at the time and was used at TI from 1954 to 1956 for some production.
