Intel at 50: Gordon Moore on the Founding of Intel

In advance of Intel’s 50th anniversary, Gordon Moore offered an interview about the company’s early days and the personalities that built the foundation of its success.

Moore, a founder of Intel with Robert Noyce, spoke of the pair’s departure from Fairchild Semiconductor; the naming of Intel; the choice of Silicon Valley — Santa Clara, California, in particular — as the company’s home; the early days with Noyce and Andy Grove; his role as Intel’s CEO, starting in 1979; and the formation of Intel’s corporate values.

Of Intel’s first 50 years, he said, “It was hard for me to believe that Intel’s going to be 50 years old; it just doesn’t seem that long.”

This video is among a series running to celebrate Intel’s 50th anniversary in 2018.
