    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.
