Reviews
Christophe Lecuyer and David Brock's Makers of the Microchip is...a welcome addition to this literature, filling an important gap in our understanding.--Michael Riordan, Technology and Culture--

The book stands on its own as a solidly researched (not to mention beautifully produced) presentation of the most important years in the history of a landmark firm and its products.

--David L. Morton, The Futurist--

Makers of the Microchip is no ordinary recounting of events...Because of the book's format, you'll breeze through it while learning the hows and whys of the company and its techology.

--Martin Rowe Test, Measurement World--

The book makes fascinating reading for those already familiar with the business or technology of microelectronics, and has a helpful glossary and explanation for general readers unfamiliar with the technicalities of semiconductor manufacturing...Highly recommended.
