AMERICAN EXPERIENCE | Silicon Valley – Clip 2 | PBS

“Silicon Valley” tells the story of the pioneering scientists and engineers who transformed rural Santa Clara County into the hub of technological ingenuity we now know as Silicon Valley. The film spotlights the creativity of the young men who founded Fairchild Semiconductor and in particular the brilliant, charismatic young physicist Robert Noyce. Their radical innovations would include the integrated circuit which helped make the United States a leader in both space exploration and the personal computer revolution, transforming the way the world works, plays and communicates, making possible everything from the Apollo program to smart phones, from pacemakers to microwaves. Tune in for the premiere of “Silicon Valley” Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 8/7c on PBS. Learn more: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/silicon/
