The 20 inch Diameter Photomultiplier Tubes +The photomultiplier tubes were developed and manufactured at the Toyooka Factory, Hamamatsu Photonics, 314-5, Shimokanzo, Iwata City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Iwata City is in the area covered by the IEEE Nagoya Section. (Iwata City is located next to Hamamatsu City.)
The Abacus +The building belongs to the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The Birthplace of Silicon Valley +The plaque will be installed in the monument area at the site. Plans are to have an artistic sculpture memorializing the site. The sculpture is projected to be 8+ feet high. The IEEE bronze plaque will be installed in this plaza and blend with sculptor (monument). Presently there is a bronze "site" plaque in the concrete sidewalk. This present plaque will also be mounted in the plaza and will be complementary to the IEEE milestone plaque. Presently there is a road sign on a pole at the edge of the site, marking the locations. This marker is visible to street traffic. Photos of both the plaque and the road sign are available on request.
The First Breaking of Enigma Code by the Team of Polish Cipher Bureau, 1932-39 +Institute of Mathematics, Polish Academy of Sciences
The First Optical Fiber Laser and Amplifier +The proposed site is in the Southbridge MA Town Common on Main Street directly across from the old American Optical main plant where the work took place. The Common is public land owned by Southbridge. On Jan 23, 2012 the Southbridge Town Council granted permission to place the Milestone plaque in the Common.
The Floating Gate EEPROM, 1976-1978 +SanDisk Headquarters, 601 McCarthy Blvd., Milpitas, CA 95035 (37.417158,-121.920927). This is Bldg. 6, which includes the main Visitors' Lobby.
The High Definition Television System, 1964-1989 +The intended site of the milestone plaque is NHK Science and Technology Research Laboratories (STRL), where the HDTV system was conceived and developed.
The MU (Middle and Upper atmosphere) radar, 1984 +The original radar observatory site where the MU radar was built, and it is used today. It is owned by Kyoto University.
The first human rescue and life saving enabled by space technology +CRC Main lobby? CSTM Main entrance? CRC is the location of the ground staion which produced the location data for the first rescue enabled by satellite. It is an appropriate location for a plaque but is inaccessible by the public. A plaque is already there commemorating the Alouette satellite. The CSTM is an alternate location which is visited by large numbers of the general public.
The first satellite broadcasting to the public +The milestone plaque will be installed outside the building of NHK Science and Technology Research Laboratories, but within the laboratories lot at the entrance space. The location is chosen so that every visitor to the laboratories can see the milestone plaque.
The world’s first low-loss optical fiber for telecommunications +The plaque will be located at Corning’s Sullivan Park Research Center in the front of the Fundamental Research building, the site of the invention.
Toshiba T1100, a pioneering contribution to the development of laptop PC, 1985 +Toshiba Ome Complex This achievement (T-1100) developed in the factory in 1984-1985 and mass production also was performed by this factory.
Trans-Atlantic Telephone Fiber-optic Submarine Cable (TAT-8) - 1988 +This is the main AT&T Labs Building in New Jersey, in the vicinity of Tuckerton, NJ (cable landing site) and Freehold, NJ (technology integration site). There is a mounted bust of Alexander Graham Bell in the vicinity of where the plaque will be installed.


Unidirectional Microphone +Shure Incorporated 5800 W. Touhy Ave. Niles, IL 60714-4608 Shure Incorporated was the technology developer.


Virginia Smith HVDC Converter Station with Integrated AC Voltage Control Function +The plaque location inside the entry hall is accessible to the public and guarded


Weston Meters +The intended site is the Electrical and Computer Engineering Building on the campus of New Jersey Institute of Technology. The original factory and buildings are believed to be no longer standing. Edward Weston was also a founder of NJIT and left his instrument collection and papers to the University. There is a museum to his contributions in the university Library and additional early instruments on display n the ECE building.
Whirlwind Computer +Whirlwind was built and operated in MIT's Barta Building at 211 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge. The computer operated and remained at that location throughout its lifetime. The building is now MIT building N42. The Section will seek approval from MIT's President's Office to mount this milestone plaque on that building, alongside other IEEE plaques that may be awarded.
Wireless Transmission between Fixed Antenna and Moving Trains, 1913 +The Milestones Plaque will be placed on the actual tower used in the experiment. It is located beyond the sidewalk on Henry St in Binghamton, New York. As the tower and plaque will be outside there is no need for visitors to go through security.
Worlds First Reliable High Voltage Power Fuse +The plaque will be installed on the property of S&C Electric Company in Chicago, Illinois. This is the headquarters and primary manufacturing facility of S&C (formerly Schweitzer & Conrad—the company that introduced the Liquid Power Fuse). The device was manufactured at this facility through the 1990s.


Zenit three-coordinate L-band pulsed radar, 1938 +Entrance to the old campus of the National Science Center “Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology” (NSC KIPT) of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Radar Zenit was conceived in 1935, developed since 1937, and demonstrated at that site in 1938. This is a corporate building. There are no historical markers at the site.
