Summary : AMD’s and Intel’s can be traced back to Fairchild and Shockley Transistor with this genealogy of semiconductor start-ups in Silicon Valley. The poster was created by SEMI poster. It shows the history of semiconductor start-ups in Silicon Valley.

Annexure :

Silicon Valley Genealogy, Courtesy of SEMI. SEMI had commissioned to show the explosion of semiconductor start-ups in the valley. It was developed by Don C. Hoefler, often credited with creating the term “Silicon Valley.”
