Mullard 10 pin 100 kcs circuit block OS1 B8 950 01 (green), with plastic pin cover. 1965

Mullard 10 pin 100 kcs circuit block OS1 B8 950 01 (green), with plastic pin cover, 1965. Made by the British company Mullard Ltd., these devices are complete electronic circuits, consisting of components sealed into boxes, which carry out specific logical and data-control functions. Circuit blocks were the first commercially available 'potted circuits' whose operation did not need to be understood in order to be used in an electrical system. The use of circuit blocks and, later, integrated circuits has led to standardisation, miniaturisation and modularity of electronic system design.
