This chapter recounts Noyce's years at Intel and the company's development of the microprocessor. Bob Noyce played a key role in the microprocessor's development and success at Intel. He encouraged its development; he lobbied for its introduction; he dreamed of its future importance; he promoted it tirelessly within the company and to customers. The operations manager (Grove), the key inventor (Hoff), and the board chair (Rock), have each independently said, in one way or another that “the microprocessor would not have happened at Intel if it had not been for Bob”.
