This chapter focuses on Noyce's capacity for innovation and his development of the integrated circuit. The early years of Fairchild Semiconductor were also a most intellectually fertile time for Noyce. Seven of his seventeen patents, including his most important for the integrated circuit, date from the eighteen months after the company was launched.
