1980 After the breakdown on intended link with Fairchild of USA (presumably GEC-Fairchild), GEC decided to establish a new subsidiary, Marconi Electronic Devices, to bring together its various semiconductor activities; these included:
The company would design and develop and manufacture integrated circuits, hybrid microelectronics, microwave semiconductor devices and power semiconductor devices. Lincoln would be the the home for a new VSLI (very large scale integrated circuit) production facility as well as design centre.
1981 Received order for power electronic devices for the cross-channel power link being equipped by GEC Power Engineering
1989 Managed the test of electronic tagging
Presumably later became part of GEC Plessey Semiconductors
