Founded in September 1957 in Palo Alto, California by eight young engineers and scientists from Shockley Semiconductor Laboratories, Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation pioneered new products and technologies together with an entrepreneurial style and manufacturing and marketing techniques that reshaped the semiconductor industry. The planar process conceived just 3 months later and developed in early 1959, revolutionized the production of semiconductor devices and continues to enable the manufacture of billion transistor microprocessor and memory chips today.
