Description
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.
Background
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.
