The first integrated circuit is created
Jack Kilby, an employee of Texas Instruments, successfully
attached several components to a single piece of semiconductor. This
allowed the size of computers to be potentially be decreased immensely
by placing greater power on each piece of semiconductor. This idea
had first been discussed by a British radar expert, G.W.A. Drummer in 1952.
Kilby was the first person to successfully create an integrated circuit.
Fairchild, an electronics company, began the mass marketing of integrated
circuits in 1962, using many techniques that would later become common
in these circuits.
Next : 1964 - BASIC is created
