On the production end of its operations, the company is
manufacturing an increasing number of its own precision
components, including photoconductors, semiconductor
diodes and other solid state devices, These components con-
tribute an unparalleled degree of accuracy, dependability and
sophistication to Hewlett-Packard products.

tomers, the company employs a large staff of factory-trained
field engineers. These engineers, whose primary responsibility
is to provide technical data and assistance to customers, are
backed by a Palo Alto-based customer service group including
more than 150 technicians and specialists. Together they as-
sure Hewlett-Packard customers of prompt, efficient service
in meeting their instrumentation requirements.
As Hewlett-Packard enters its second quarter-century of
growth and progress, the company intends to continue pro-
viding instruments which represent the utmost in elegant de-
sign and fine craftsmanship-a standard of quality un-
matched in the electronic test equipment field,
TOassure that each instrument is the outgrowth of specialized engineering knowledge and manufacturing
techniques, Hewlett-Packard has established four major product-oriented divisions - oscilloscopes, audio-
video, frequency and time, and microwave. Operations of these four divisions are in Palo Alto, California;
Loveland, Colorado; and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In 1958 the company acquired 8074 of the stock of the F. L. Moseley Co. of Pasadena, California. Since
then it has acquired several other firms whose activities and products are directly related to the parent com-
pany's field of interest. These divisions and affiliates include:
BOONTON RADIO -
DIVISION Founded in 1935, this firm was acquired by Hewlett-Packard in 1959. Lo-
cated in Boonton, New Jersey, the division designs and manufactures instruments for measuring electrical
circuit quality and testing aircraft guidance systems. It has gained wide recognition for its top quality imped-
ance measuring equipment, particularly its Q meters.
DIVISION Founded as a separate company in 1956, Dymec became a Hewlett-Packard division in
1959. Located in Palo Alto, the division produces instruments and systems in two broad categories of elec-
tronic instrumentation - digital data and radio frequency. Using a unique approach to standard system
design, Dymec instruments are combined with other Hewlett-Packard devices to form relatively inexpensive,
pre-packaged instrument assemblies.
H P ASSOCIATES This affiliated organization was formed by Hewlett-Packard in 1961. Headquartered
in Palo Alto, it is engaged in a most important activity-solid state research and development. Its prime
objective is to apply the highest level of technical competence to solid state R&D problems and to transform
the results of its scientific endeavor into new and improved devices for electronic instrumentation. Informa-
tion on available semiconductor devices can be obtained by writing directly to H P Associates, 2900 Park Boule-
vard, Palo Alto, California.
HARRISON LABORATORIES DIVISION Founded in 1954, this firm was originally engaged in the produc-
tion of television studio equipment. It later entered the power supply field, and today specializes in the de-
sign and manufacture of highly regulated dc power supplies. Located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey,
Harrison Laboratories became a division of Hewlett-Packard in 1961.
F. L. MOSELEY - Founded in 1951, F. L. Moseley became an affiliate of Hewlett-Packard in 1958.
The company is a leading manufacturer of precision X-Y recorders and related instruments. It is particu-
larly noted for its top-quality line of Autograf recorders and accessory devices. The company has two plants
in Pasadena, California.
PAECO DrvrsIoN-Originally founded in 1951 as the Palo Alto Engineering Company, Paeco became a
division of Hewlett-Packard in 1962. Located in Palo Alto, the division designs and manufactures Hewlett-
Packard ac power supplies, static inverters, voltage regulators and frequency changers.
COMPANY Founded in 1917, this well-established company became an affiliate of Hewlett-
Packard in 1961. The firm is a leading producer of medical diagnostic apparatus and since 1949 has also
designed and manufactured a broad line of industrial instruments for measuring and recording such phys-
ical phenomena as stress, strain, pressure, speed, sound, vibration and temperature. Sanborn is head-
quartered in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Generators, Aircraft VOR/ ILS/ DME Test Equipment
Boonton Radio, established in 1934, has specialized in the design and manufacture of precision electronic laboratory instru-
ments falling into three general areas : impedance measuring equipment, FM-AM signal generators and instruments for the
calibration of aircraft navigation systems. Impedance measuri ng instruments currently manufactured include Q meters, rf
bridges, production Q comparators, and transistor test equipment operating in the 1 kc to 610 mc range. FM-AM and sweep sig-
nal generators and accessory equipment cover the 100 kc to 500 mc portion of the spectrum and are designed to serve broadcast
FM, vhf-tv, and telemetering, as well as general communications applications. Specialized signal generators are provided for the
VOR and DME aircraft navigation svstems. the ILS aircraft landing system, and the ATC beacon. For information on the
