Transistor Test Fixture
TI number: G00350

This item is an early transistor test fixture from the 1950's. Fixtures of this type were commonly used at TI for both production and laboratory testing in the early days. They had to be built internally because nothing of the type needed was commercially available at the time.

Even after fixtures and equipment designed for volume testing became available, this type socket continued in wide use for some time in Engineering and Quality Assurance for miscellaneous testing.
