Description

In this oral history, Ted covers his professional life experience, growing up in Southern California, earning a PhD from Caltech and starting his semiconductor career at Fairchild, but quickly moving over to Intel where he spent 30 very rewarding years.

Ted’s background was in devices and semiconductor processing which he put to use in his first years at Intel. He gained increasing management responsibilities in process development and both front-end and back-end manufacturing and had the responsibility to bring up several of Intel’s early fabs.

Later on he moved to a variety of assignments as a GM in the Personal Computer Operation and other similar responsibilities. He finished his career working as a technical consultant in the legal department.

Ted speaks eloquently of his experience working with Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove and his respect for the directness of the Intel culture.
