In the 1950's, Japanese electronics firms moved from a technological event that seemed far behind their US and European rivals to dominate the first commercial markets for semiconductors. The processes by which this happened have been little studied and are not well understood. This paper explores the history of the commercialization of the transistor radio, Japan's first successful semiconductor product. The history is organized into a theoretical framework to help permit systematic comparison and analysis.
