Why did Silicon Valley come into being? The story takes you back to historical signficance of Stanford engineers, campus faculty kids around 1915, local Hams (amateur radio operators) trying to break RCA’s tube patents, the sinking of the Titanic, Angel Investments.
Local invention of high-power tubes (gammatron, klystron), WWII and radar, new approaches to running companies, and the San Francisco Bay Area infrastructure, all these factors led to the semiconductor and integrated circuit industries being located here, and earned it the designation as “Silicon Valley”.
In this exciting history of device technology development and innovation from 1909 through 1960, you will “meet” some of the colorful characters — Cyril Elwell, Leonard Fuller, Lee DeForest, Bill Eitel, Charles Litton, Russell Varian, Fred Terman, David Packard, Bill Hewlett and others.
