Gordon Earle Moore, Robert Norton Noyce

The Intel Museum

In the 1990s, Jean Jones, an employee of the Intel Corporation, founded the “Intel Museum”. The museum was placed within Intel’s Robert Norton Noyce Building, a structure with their corporate headquarters in Santa Clara, California.

In 1957, physicist Robert Norton Noyce founded Fairchild Semiconductor. A decade later, in 1968, physicists Gordon Earle Moore and Robert Norton Noyce founded Intel with a staff of fifty employees.

Robert Noyce stayed with the Intel company as they progressively created faster computer chips.

In 1981, Robert Noyce argued that devices such as calculators and computers enhance peoples’ lives, rather than making people less intelligent, ad some argued since a machine is doing work for the person. Robert Noyce worked with Intel until his passing in the 1990s.

Robert Noyce left a legacy in the computing industry through the invention of the integrated circuit.

Gordon Moore left a legacy through his creation of “Moore’s Law”.

The museum outlines the progress of the company through the decades, since its founding in the 1960s.

In 2015, During the 50th Anniversary of the integrated circuit, Gordon Moore discussed the accuracy of the “Moore’s Law” that he formulated.
