Collection Item Summary:
This is an example of an integrated circuit that was produced as a result of a U.S. Air Force sponsored program, ca. mid-1980s. The program was intended to produce circuits for aerospace applications, which both switched at high speeds and also were resistant to radiation, either cosmic as might be encountered by a satellite in space, or man-made as a result of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from a nuclear explosion.
