Biography

Raytheon's Semiconductor Division was established in Mountain View, California in 1968 by its parent company, Raytheon Company of Lexington, Massachusetts, which, in 1990, was described as "one of the largest and most diversified electronics companies in the United States." In the early 1990s, the company was involved in the manufacture and distribution of semiconductors and had 1200 employees at its Mountain View location. In November of 1997, Raytheon sold its Semi-Conductors/Integrated Circuits Division to the Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation.

Collection Scope and Content Summary

The collection consists of files that Raytheon's Semiconductor Division kept to monitor both the progress of their competitors and trends in the electronics industry. The original organization of the files has been largely reproduced here. Gaps in the numerical filing system indicate that Raytheon chose to donate only selected files from its records. Overview of box contents: Boxes 1-17: Files numbered 1.0 through 17.18.1 (non-continuous) about electronics industry and market. Boxes 17-18: files on Raytheon itself. Box 19: other Raytheon research files (numbered R 5.6 and R 5.6A). Boxes 20-22: periodical articles. Box 23: seminars, magazines, educational materials.
