Biographical Notes

Cecil A. (Art) Lasch worked as a technician at Fairchild for Gordon Moore in the late 1950’s where he built diffusion furnaces and other equipment. With encouragement from Fairchild, in 1960 he started his own company, Specialty Products, to make glass capillary tubes containing gold wires used for bonding onto transistor chips. Beginning in 1964 under the name Electroglas, the company built furnaces for the commercial market and probing equipment used for making electrical contact with semiconductor wafers for testing prior to packaging. Electroglas has been identified as the first spin-out from Fairchild.
