A look into Fairchild Semiconductor’s integrated circuit manufacturing from an educational promotional film broadcast on television on October 11, 1967:
Fairchild Semiconductor presented its new products and technologies with an entrepreneurial style, and its early manufacturing and marketing techniques helped give Californias Santa Clara County a new name: Silicon Valley. It was one of the early forerunners of what would become a worldwide high-tech industry, as evidenced in this short promotional film.
