The Transistor Museum’s tagline is “Dedicated to Preserving the History of the Greatest Invention of the 20th Century,” and it does a pretty good job of it. On this website you’ll find articles on:
- The First Germanium Hobbyist Transistors
- Early Transistors at Motorola
- The First Transistor in Space
- Norman Krim, the Father of the CK722 Transistor
- a whole lot more
Like all good museums, they also have a museum store. They sell a couple of books on the early semiconductors as well as some of those transistors themselves. They’re kind of pricey, though. A 2N60 or 2N609, for example, costs $20.
