Description

"Miniature and Microminiature Electronics" (New York: John Wiley and Sons, 1961) by G. W. A. Dummer and J. Granville describes the three mains systems of microminiaturization being pursued by semiconductor and electronic systems manufacturers through early 1960. It includes micromodules (stacked individual components; microcircuits (flat or evaporated components); and solid circuits (integrated components or “molecular” electronics). This file includes pages 263-300 cover the state of the art in semiconductor-based circuit miniaturization technology in 1960 with descriptions of work at TI, Plessey, RCA, the Royal Radar Establishment (RRE), and Westinghouse. No details had been released by Fairchild at the time of writing.
