TitleShockley Semiconductor Laboratory alumni reminiscence
DescriptionThis program features eight brief interviews, of approximately 10 minutes in duration each, of early Shockley employees. Most are from the ‘second wave' of employees, viz. those hired on after the 'traitorous eight' had left SSL to form Fairchild Semiconductor. The interviewees are: Leo Amadi, Jacques Beaudouin, Richard Finch, Samuel Fok, Roland Haitz, Michael Heynes, Colin Knight, Andy Ramans.
Discussions focus on work style at SSL, Shockley the man and inventor, collaborations amongst fellow employees, specialized (and hand-made) semiconductor processing equipment, as well as company spirit and work atmosphere.
Interviewees reflect on their early careers, the semiconductor industry, and how their work at SSL shaped their later professional lives.
