Founded in 1968 by the late Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore and Andy Grove, Intel is 35 years old today.
Intel Corporation kicked off the first of several worldwide events celebrating the company's first 35 years by preserving state-of-the-art technology products in a "time capsule" ceremony at its headquarters here today. Two of the company's founders, Gordon Moore, Intel chairman emeritus, and Andy Grove, Intel chairman, addressed employees to mark the 35th anniversary of the company that began as a Silicon Valley startup, created the microprocessor, and went on to become the world's largest chipmaker.More information @ Intel
The time capsule contains items submitted from Intel sites from around the world, including a state-of-the-art 300-millimeter wafer from Oregon, a microprocessor package from China, and a newspaper from Costa Rica. A wooden box carved from an olive tree comes from Israel - home to one of the principal design centers for Intel Centrino mobile technology - and contains a metallic dove, symbolizing Israel's hope for a future of peace. The time capsule will be opened in 2018 to mark Intel's 50th anniversary.
