Know more about Robert Noyce :

Robert Norton Noyce (December 12, 1927 – June 3, 1990), nicknamed “the Mayor of Silicon Valley”, co-founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957 and Intel in 1968. He is also credited (along with Jack Kilby) with the invention of the integrated circuit or microchip which fueled the personal computer revolution and gave Silicon Valley its name. Noyce was also a mentor and father-figure to an entire generation of entrepreneurs. Noyce died in 1990 in Austin, Texas, aged 60.Source : Wikipedia

Google tweaked its logo to feature a microchip with the Google branding. Noyce co-founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957 and Intel in 1968. I think he should get a birthday tribute from one of Silicon Valley’s most powerful technology companies.

Google estimates it has created more than 1000 doodles since 1998 and they will still continue to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous personalities like Louis Daguerre.

Tricks Machine along with its readers wishes Dr. Robert Noyce on his 84th Birthday.
