In cooperation with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Center for the History of Electrical Engineering, oral histories were conducted to document the spectrum of innovative activities in the microelectronics industry. These activities include, translation (people or companies instrumental in knowledge transfer between invention stage and commercialization); venture capital (entrepreneurs or financiers); applications (use of the basic form of microelectronics technology in entirely new, often unexpected applications) research management; legal issues; and chip design. The collection consists of five interviews with transcripts and audio cassettes for: Bruce Everitt, Frederico Faggin, Steward Flaschen, Glen Madland, and Richard Petritz.
