Secondary resources have been the main source through articles that have been gathered using online sources and journals. Background In 1968 Bob Noyce, Gordon Moore and Andy Grove founded a new company that built semiconductor memory products, named NM Electronics Inc. Moore and Noyce had problems with the copyright of the company’s name as it already belonged to a hotel chain. Noyce, Moore and Grove then changed the name to Intel Corporation, short for Integrated Electronics. The small startup company was founded in Santa Clara, California with $500,000 and funds from investors. In 1971 they introduced the world’s first microprocessor, which revolutionized the computer industry. Moore sensed the impending growth of the semiconductor computer chip industry and predicted that the amount of transistors on a single computer chip would double every year. This fact helds true and has been coined as â€Å"Moore’s Law†. Intel's mission is to be the preeminent building block supplier to the Interne... ...lopment at a time when the semiconductor industry began to slow down. He persisted through the semiconductor industry’s slowdown and shifted focus on diversifying Intel’s market. Now as the semiconductor industry begins to surge ahead CEO Craig Barrett has been given praise for his foresight and perseverance. Barrett will be stepping down as CEO in the spring of 2005, and will sit on the board of directors with Intel founder Andy Grove. As reported by Intel, Barrett earned a salary of $610,000 and received a $1.5 million dollar bonus in 2003. Paul Otellini, Intel’s chief operating officer will be taking over the position of CEO.

CEO Craig Barrett’s point of view on the nation’s education system, â€Å"A faulty educational system that does little to teach adequate math and science skills is a major problem the high-tech economy and the nation will need to address in the coming years† (Riucciti).
