It would be interesting to know something specific about this transistor. What company first registered it? How many companies made it at its most popular? Does anyone still make it now? How many are made in a year? Is it as popular now as it was in, oh, say, 1968? What notable products were made possible due to the invention of this trnsistor that weren't possible before? A little more depth than the NTE cross reference guide would be very encyclopediac. --Wtshymanski (talk) 03:40, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
- answers: 1. Motorola (in article) 2. Every company in the mass-market transistor business, even if they had to mark it on parts that could have fetched a higher price, in order to fill the entire order for major clients 3. Yes 4. ? 5. probably peaked in the '70s 6. Maybe some mainframe computer boards (before IC's) that used thousands, that previously used hermetic parts.126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:40, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
