Diode display
TI number: G00178

Display contains two diodes and was used for advertising the Micro G as the world's smallest diode.

The Micro G diode went into production in 1961 and was in production for two plus years. Although TI solved the problems of handling this very small item, the customers also had handling problems; and for many of them at the time, the space savings did not justify the additional handling problems.
