Google’s Integrated Circuit Celebrates Robert Noyce’s Birthday Today

Google today celebrates the 84th birthday of Robert Noyce with a Google Doodle of an integrated circuit on its landing page. Mr. Noyce was born on the 12th of December and this very important person, who was instrumental in the invention of the integrated circuit (otherwise known as the microchip), kickstarted the PC revolution, without which I wouldn’t be sitting here typing this post out on my MacBook Pro.

He co-founded at first Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957 before leaving to found Intel in 1968. Yup, that Intel whose chips you can find in most computers today and without which even AMD wouldn’t exist. So in honour of this great man, be sure to talk about him far and wide, but of course, you can choose the easiest way which is by sharing this page.
