The Origins of Silicon Valley: Why and How It Happened Here

Monday, May 13, 2013 6:00p to 8:30p

Why did Silicon Valley come into being? The story goes back to local Hams (amateur radio operators) trying to break RCA's tube patents, the sinking of the Titanic, Fred Terman and Stanford University, local invention of high-power tubes, WW II and radar, William Shockley's mother living in Palo Alto, and the SF Bay Area infrastructure that developed. Paul Wesling, an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, will give an exciting and colorful history of device technology development and innovation.
