Integrated Circuit Dummy Flatpack - 1962
TI number: G00093

In the introductory search for markets in 1962, TI gave the electronics industry a familiarity with integrated circuits by distributing thousands of dummy packages.

The dummy packages allowed potential users to become familiar with the form factor and to develop assembly techniques. Several thousand were distributed in the 1962-3 period. This item was part of the original South Building Lobby display.
