1987.0487.340.01 Texas Instruments Collection Object

Integrated Circuit
TI number: G00088

Displayed are two Series 51 I/C's without lids. These devices represent the first catalog line of I/C's introduced by TI in 1962. The circuitry was RCTL (resistor-capacitor-transistor logic).

This item was part of the original S/B Lobby display. A significant clue to future developments in IC's was the SN514, shown on the accompanying illustration, which combined two NOR/NAND circuits in one package. The upper unit on the display is an SN514.
