NCR, a multi-billion-dollar manufac- Colorado Spri ngs, Colorado
turer of computer systems, terminal !
products, and semiconductors, es-
tablished its first microelectronics labo-
ratory in 1963 to stay abreast of the
emerging semiconductor technology.
The laboratory was expanded in 1966
to provide limited quantities of proto-
type microcircuits designed for use in
a number of new products. By 1968
the first MOS circuits were produced,
and by 1970 a complete family of cir-
cuits had been designed, produced in
prototype quantities, and incorporated
into new NCR products. Based upon
