RCA Corporation, originally Radio Corporation of America.

RCA was Datanetics’ first customer, purchasing a single batch-fabricated array keyboard for $600 in 1967. At one point, Meryl Miller from Datanetics reported that they provided a small order of keyboards to RCA in 1968; Datanetics were reportedly told that “a few of them were used aboard U.S. Navy submarines.” Later he suggested that RCA only ordered prototypes or samples.
