Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics.

Erie Technological Products, located in
my adopted hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania, was a re-branding of
Erie Resistor Company as the concern had begun manufacturing a
wide variety of discrete electronic devices - resistors, capacitors, feed-through
filters, silicon rectifiers. The Erie Resistor complex on 12th Street in Erie occupies
a huge amount of real estate on both sides of the road. The overhead foot bridge
can be seen in this photo. The buildings have long been vacated and stand with many
others as reminders of the thriving manufacturing center that Erie once was. We
still have a good bit of manufacturing here, but nothing like back in the hey days
of the last century.

Erie's Project "Active"
Advanced Components through Increase Volumetric Efficiency
The term "Active" in the Erie organization identifies a total program encompassing
the research, development and production of Advanced Components Through Increased
Volumetric Efficiency for aerospace, military and commercial equipment.
Project "Active" now brings to electronics and avionics a series of high performance,
subminiature components designed for applications where every cubic inch of space
and every ounce of weight is critical to successful equipment performance.
These Erie components have been and are being designed into the circuitry of
such demanding systems as Gemini, Apollo, Minuteman, Nike X, Telstar, Polaris...
commercial computers, oscilloscopes... and many other applications where size, weight
and dependable performance are vital. While the advanced products illustrated at
left are in quantity production, a number of components are still in the concept
stage, while others are at final evaluation ready for production.
Consider the problem-solving advantages Erie Active components can offer you
in your quest for reliable, subminiature components. We suggest Erie as your quality
source. A collect call or letter to your nearby representative... or to Erie headquarters
is all that is needed as the "first step."
