Does anyone know where the original Fairchild Semiconductor building was located. I was told there is a placque at the location and I would like to see it if it exists. Tnx!
Are you sure you're not referring to Shockley Semi? It's now a furnature store, and a placque is there.
There is no discussion of Fairchild's poisoning of ground water in San Jose, Ca.
Fairchild Semiconductor article
This article is seriously out of date. Fairchild Semiconductor has been alive and well since a management buyout from National Semiconductor in 1997. It is now the number one supplier of power semiconductors in a range of applications. See http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/nys/fcs/reports/fcs_factbook03d.pdf
I have no connection with Fairchild: I am a UK based freelance writer and photographer.

What are these brackets for ?
Some part of the article is written in an commercial tone.
This article (espically the caption on the pictures) tend to say Fairchild made the first IC. Not true- it was Texas Instruments. Have you heard of Jack Kilby!
- Yes, I have? But read the plaque. The Fairchild guys invented the first IC that could be commercially produced, or the first "monolithic" IC, in the sense that it didn't need a kludge of bond wires to interconnect the devices. Kilby did a good thing, but Fairchild did even better. Dicklyon 02:47, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
I think this section linked to the wrong Robert Swanson. I think it should link to the Robert Swanson who cofounded Linear Technologies, not the one who cofounded Genentech. Unfortunately, there is no Wikipedia article on the former, so I took the liberty of disabling the link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Michaelmace (talk • contribs) 19:40, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Excellent source material for history of Robert Noyce and Fairchild Semiconductor
If anyone is looking for an excellent source of information about the History of Fairchild Semiconductor or to add references take a look at this:
It is a well researched Havard Business School paper on the subject by Leslie R. Berlin.
Michael Crichton's "Rising Sun" mentions the sale of the company to a French concern after a Japanese bid was balked by Congress. Is this fiction? The timeline for 1986 is sketchy. Do alumni have any comment on this? translator (talk) 17:18, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
