Fairchild 1967 Briefing on Integrated Circuits

at 6:17 pm. Filed under Educational


Funny how they look at the circuitry from the 60s and call it old fashioned. Interesting how we work with these little pieces of magic every day without having to know the complexity that goes into creating them. Other than automation I don’t think much has changed over the years. I wonder if someone sent them a letter at the address shown at 19:08 if they would get anything in return?

“Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation was one of the most influential early high-tech companies. Founded in Palo Alto California in 1957 by eight scientists and engineers from Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory, Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation was funded by Fairchild Camera and Instrument Corporation of Syossett, New York. Rapidly establishing itself as a technology innovator based on its invention of the planar manufacturing process in 1959, the company developed the first monolithic integrated circuit, the first CMOS device, and numerous other technical and business innovations. French oil field services company Schlumberger Limited purchased Fairchild in 1979 and sold a much weakened business to National Semiconductor in 1987. In 1997 National divested a group, formed as the present Fairchild Semiconductor, in a leveraged buy-out. The company re-emerged as a public entity based in South Portland, Maine in 1999 under the corporate name Fairchild Semiconductor International, Inc.”
