The Google Doodle

With special events we get to look forward to a great Google Doodle. I have come to enjoy these over the years. The team that designs these have really done a great job over the last few years. With today’s Doodle we are celebrating the 84th birthday of Robert Noyce. Who is Robert Noyce?

Robert Norton Noyce was the co-founder of Fairchild Semiconductor and Intel. He is also credited, along with Jack Kilby with the invention of the integrated circuit or some may say the microchip, which in turn gave way to the personal computer revolution. This in turn spurned what has become known as Silicon Valley.

With a long history in semi-conductors, the microchip and Intel was born. The best micro processors in the world. I would like to refer you to read the great article about how Steve Jobs idolized Mr. Noyce. That article can be found here:
