Description

The donor describes this object as follows:
"Not to be left out, manufacturers of flexible printed circuit tape began flooding the market with super-fine-line geometries, executed on reel-to-reel tape patterns, as shown in this collection from some 40 different suppliers. The reel-to-reel tape assembly process for packaging chips took a huge turn upward in the 1970s, when National Semiconductor launched its TAB (tape automated bonding) program with 3M Corporation, in developing a fully automated gang bonding process. Samples of this are shown in this collection."
