Historical Background

 

General Electric was an industry leader in germanium technology throughout the 1950s.  The first GE junction transistors were introduced in late 1953 (PNP alloy junction devices, labeled as 2N43/44/45).   Within the next couple of years, GE developed a variety of additional types, including the grown junction 2N167, introduced in 1955.  This was a high reliability switching transistor and was used in digital computers and by the military.  The 2N167 was very successful and continued to be manufactured by GE for over a decade.  The 2N167A was introduced in 1960 as a mechanically “ruggedized” version of the 2N167.   The 2N167/2N167A was also made available as a US Air Force (USAF) labeled device.
