HSC Electronics was started in 1963 (as Halted Specialties Co., thus the "HSC")
as a dealership in surplus hydraulic, vacuum and environmental test equipment
to the larger government contractors in California's Santa Clara Valley (before
it was known as "Silicon Valley"!)
As years went by, Halted grew and changed
along with Silicon Valley until we became one of the better-known dealers in surplus
electronics in the area. We buy and sell nearly every type of electronic component,
test equipment, computer peripheral and R & D supply, as well as the occasional piece
of process and manufacturing equipment. We haven't totally turned our back on our
history, however, as we still have some trade in vacuum gear and environmental chambers!
We now have three stores open to the public in California, as well as offering our
unique merchandise to the rest of the world by mail order.
If you are in the San
Francisco Bay area, you owe it to yourself to stop in and see what we offer.
We have featured everything from I.C.'s to rocket motors, oscilloscopes to electron
microscopes, soldering irons to industrial lasers, and just about everything else in
between! We also feature an extensive selection of new products for technicians,
engineers and the hobbyist who needs electronic parts, or who just loves to tinker!
Our broad selection, low prices and friendly, knowledgable staff make HSC the perfect
place to shop for all your electronic needs.
