Jack Kilby Integrated Circuit
This is Jack Kilby’s first integrated circuit. He invented it at Texas Instruments in 1958.

A few fun facts about Dallas, Texas and even more reason to attend this WordCamp:

  1. The integrated circuit computer chip, which became the microchip, was invented in Dallas at Texas Instruments in 1958 by Jack Kilby.
  2. During the winter holiday season, the Galleria Dallas is home to the country’s tallest indoor Christmas tree.
  3. The Dallas Public Library permanently displays one of the original copies of the Declaration of Independence, printed on July 4, 1776, as well as the First Folio of William Shakespeare’s “Comedies, Histories & Tragedies.”
