Hughes Diodes From Scotland
‘Made in Glenrothes, Scotland the Hughes range of silicon and germanium diodes (HG5001-9) are sub-miniature devices with extremely stable electrical and mechanical characteristics.
So, over 50 years ago starts, an advertisement in Electronics Weekly’s edition of May 3rd 1961.
The ad continues:
These diodes are specially designed and constructed to meet the most exacting requirements of military or commercial applications.
They are double wire ended and fusion-sealed in a sub-miniature one-piece glass envelope to ensure complete isolation of the active elements from damage or contamination.
The small size combined with rigidity of construction and small mass of the elements. Enable them to successfully withstand physical shock and vibration.
Qualified engineers in our Research and Development laboratories at Glenrothes are available to help with your application problems.Tags: application problems, contamination, exacting requirements, physical shock, scotland
