Description

Note from original cataloger or donor: "This Mask making method used at General Micro-electronics in 1964 was developed by Gerry Henriksen, Chris Van Peski, Tice Vanos and Les Woods of Electromask, and I believe that Signetics used one that was very similar to it, which was built and installed just before or after ours. The next mask making system developed by Electromask was the very first laserinterferometer-controlled step and repeat mask making camera system (the granite stage floated on air bearings), which was vastly superior to the David Mann lead-screw technology. The first of these was installed at Cartesian Corp." Donated by Dan Borrer.
