Japan Semiconductor Innovation 50 (A-3 1960s)
Transistor TV (Sony)
Sony (then Tokyo Tsushin-kogyo) developed and commercialized
the world first 8inch transistor monochrome TV, TV8-301. Although this was
the world first product, it did not sell as expected partly because of its
quality issue. Based on this experience, Sony developed 5 inch Micro TV,
TV5-303, in April 1962.
This TV was sold first in the US and gained dramatic popularity in the market.
The catch phrase at that time was "Transistors changed TV", and it impressed the market on the strong impact of semiconductors.
