Fire in the Valley: The Birth and Death of the Personal Computer

Within the Nineteen Seventies, whereas their contemporaries have been protesting the pc as a device of dehumanization and oppression, a motley choice of university dropouts, hippies, and electronics enthusiasts have been engaged in whatever even more subversive. keen about the assumption of having laptop strength into their very own fingers, they introduced from their garages a hobbyist move that grew into an undefined, and eventually a social and technological revolution.

At the time, semiconductor memory was going for about a dollar a bit, whereas core memory was about a penny a bit. ” By 1970, Intel was known as a successful memory chip company, having introduced a 1Kbit memory chip much larger than anything else available at the time. (1Kbit equals 1,024 bits, and a byte equals 8 bits. ) Known as the 1103 dynamic random access memory (DRAM), it became the world’s largest-selling semiconductor device by the end of the following year. By this time Intel had also grown from the core founders and a handful of others to more than 100 employees.

The idea was to design almost an entire computing device on a single chip that could perform different functions, depending on what instructions it was given. There was one problem with the new chip: Busicom owned the rights to it. Hoff and others knew that the product had almost limitless application, bringing intelligence to a host of “dumb” machines. They urged Intel to repurchase the rights to the product. While Intel founders Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce championed the new chip, others within the company were concerned that the product would distract Intel from its main focus, making memory.

By 1981, Intel’s microprocessor family had grown to include the 16-bit 8086 and the 8-bit 8088 processors. These two chips garnered an unprecedented 2,500 design wins in a single year. Among those designs was a product from IBM that was to become the first PC. In 1982, Intel introduced the 286 chip. With 134,000 transistors, it provided about three times the performance of other 16-bit processors of the time. Featuring on-chip memory management, the 286 was the first microprocessor that offered software compatibility with its predecessors.
