A semiconductor packaging hardware donation to Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI)
Deprecated ITCHP Number
This document was prepared by Daniel J. Rose to accompany his donation of a collection of packing hardware for semiconductors to SEMI. SEMI transferred this collection to the Computer History Museum in 2007. This collection of packaging hardware illustrates the history of packaging technology, beginning in the late 1940s, with the evolution of the simple transistor. In the late 1950s, with the invention of the integrated circuit (IC), technology moved on through the 1960s, with the evolution of sophisticated packaging hardware. Progress continued into the 1970s, with extremely complex packaging hardware. Further sophistication developed through the 1980s and 1990s, and there are several samples of this technology in the collection. Donated by Rose Associates. 12 scanned pages.
