Tercom System Circuit Board - 1962-3
TI number: G00090

The item was one of the first applications of integrated circuits in production equipment- 1962-63. It was used in equipment built by TI for LTV.

This item was part of the original S/B Lobby display. The system was a Marine Corps airborne mobile flight control equipment. TI used series 51 and custom variations of catalog devices. Their assembly into subsystems took the form of plug-in boards an encapsulated plug-in modules which offered size and shape advantages in meeting the packaging requirements. Also shown is an unsealed example device. The original display lists Emil Skocpol and Charles Phipps as contributors.
