Product milestones

Here you can browse through the telecommunications equipment, computers, semiconductors and other major product breakthroughs, as well as solution services, from Fujitsu's history. Each area is broken down into individual categories.

Telecommunications Equipment

Starting out in 1935 as a telecommunications equipment manufacturer, Fujitsu began making switching systems and transmission equipment to support telephone service networks. Over time, the equipment took on new and various forms as these telecommunication networks began to be used not only for telephone services, but for the transmission of computer data as well.

Switching Systems


In 1954, Fujitsu used a device called a relay from its telephone switching systems, which were its main product at the time, to develop Japan's first practical relay-type computer, the FACOM 100. The era of general-purpose computer equipment continued for some time after this, and Fujitsu grew to become Japan's leading computer manufacturer. As telecommunication networks and semiconductor technology became increasingly sophisticated, a wide variety of computers began to appear, including business computers designed for office work automation, word processors specialized for creating documents, and small-sized, full-featured personal computers.
