|North American Industry Classification System for Computer Hardware (334111/334119 to SIC 357) |
Computer and Peripheral Equipment
The U.S. computer and peripheral equipment manufacturing industry (NAICS 33411) consists of establishments engaged in producing and/or assembling analog, digital, or hybrid computers and related equipment. Local area networking (LAN) communications equipment is classified in NAICS 334210 – Telephone apparatus manufacturing, which includes establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing wire telephone and data communications equipment, and as a result represents more than the networking sector. Internal loaded printed circuit board devices, internal and external computer modems and semiconductor storage devices are classified in NAICS 33441– Semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing.
