ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS 

Micro History

​1960

​In this world of rapidly changing technologies, one constant is the need for continually increasing the density of electronic circuits to meet the size and weight constraints of ever more complex systems. For 50 years, Teledyne Microelectronics has met the challenge with creative packaging solutions. From the first simple hybrids to the present, Teledyne Microelectronics provides the microelectronics that make history.

​1970

With the expansion of space exploration in the 1970’s, Teledyne Microelectronics established a remarkable record of achievement on a variety of space programs. We provided thousands of modules and custom microelectronics for spacecraft such as launch and re-entry vehicles, landers, the spacelab, some of which are still flying today - sending back data from distant worlds.


EXPLORATION | 01 JANUARY 1970
​1975

​Two Viking probes landed on the Martian surface carrying 710 Teledyne Microelectronics hybrids. These hybrids processed and transmitted all photographs taken from the probe – no failures have ever occurred from these hybrids.
