Overview of the IC@50

Statements on IC@50

The integrated circuit is the foundation for modern life. Isaac Asimov once described the innovation of the integrated circuit as “the most important moment since man emerged as a life form.” It is central to our mission to tell these ground-breaking stories of technological progress, and to put them in context for all of us today.

The solar and wireless Industries are two illustrations of the impact of the integrated circuit. See video and written content below discussing these important milestones.
