THE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT WAS INVENTED BY
JACK KILBY OF TEXAS INSTRUMENTS AND ROBERT NOYCE OF FAIRCHILD
IN 1958

THEY INDEPENDENTLY CAME UP WITH THE SAME IDEA
TO BUILD AN ENTIRE CIRCUIT ONTO A SINGLE CRYSTAL
THEY ARE BOTH VIEWED AS THE INVENTORS OF THE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT



MONOLITHIC CONCEPT AND THE INVENTIONS OF INTEGRATED CIRCUITS BY KILBY AND NOYCE (1.2MB)

EARLY DEMAND FOR ICs
THE AIR FORCE - MINUTEMAN PROJECT
AND
NASA - APOLLO PROGRAM


THEY ACCOUNTED FOR VIRTUALLY ALL SALES IN THE EARLY 1960s

THE AMERICAN COMPUTER MARKET WOULD LATER TAKE OVER
AS THE PRIMARY DEMAND BY THE END OF THE DECADE


THE SEMICONDUCTOR BUSINESS
THE FIRST COMMERCIAL PRODUCT TO USE AN IC WAS THE ZENITH ARCADIA HEARING AID
DATE CODES - YMM (510 = 10th WEEK 1965) OR YYMM (6615 = 15th WEEK 1966) OR RARELY MMYY (2067 = 20th WEEK 1967)

OUR CONTROL DATA CORP COLLECTION

CONTROL DATA CORP (CDC) WAS FOUNDED IN 1957
CDC MADE THE FASTEST SUPERCOMPUTERS OF THE 1960s (CDC 6000 FAMILY)
CDCs DIRECTOR (1958-65) AND PRESIDENT (1965-72) WAS SEYMOUR CRAY - WHO LEFT IN 1972 TO FORM CRAY RESEARCH
IN NOV 1965 CDC ANNOUNCED THE 3300 & 3500 COMPUTER SYSTEMS
-
THE COMPUTER OFFERED A NEW TYPE OF TIME-SHARING
USERS COULD SHARE THE SYSTEM - BUT VIEW IT AS IF IT WERE THEIRS EXCLUSIVELY

-
THE 3500 SYSTEM FEATURED CDCs NEWLY DESIGNED INTEBRID CIRCUIT
