We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Semiconductor Quotes from Alvin Toffler, Lisa Su, David Milne, Bill Gates, Robert B. Laughlin. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
The next major explosion is going to be when genetics and computers come together. I’m talking about an organic computer – about biological substances that can function like a semiconductor.
I spent 15 years at IBM, then five years at Freescale Semiconductor.
We have been a fabless semiconductor company for a number of years now.
In order for the United States to do the right things for the long term, it appears to be helpful for us to have the prospect of humiliation. Sputnik helped us fund good science – really good science: the semiconductor came out of it.
It was at Bell Labs that I first made direct contact with real semiconductor experts and thus began to fully understand what amazing materials they were and what they could do.
My project was radiation damage of Si and Ge by energetic electrons, critical for the use of the recently developed semiconductor devices for applications in outer space.
The Xbox is how the computer will be built in the next 20 years. More semiconductor capacity will go to the user experience.
One of the key things is, when you look at semiconductor companies, it’s all about experience.
Broadcom is the descendent of a nearly 60-year-old unit of the original Hewlett-Packard. Semiconductor companies are like enterprise software companies: they don’t die easily.
People usually compare the computer to the head of the human being. I would say that hardware is the bone of the head, the skull. The semiconductor is the brain within the head. The software is the wisdom. And data is the knowledge.
The high-tech business, the semiconductor business, it’s very competitive. You’re out there every day slugging it out, no different from players slugging it out on the ice.
Well, I think first of all, probably the most fundamental thing is that we are a mixed-signal analog semiconductor company, which, along with some of the other well-known names in the industry, enjoys very good economics.
In the late 1960s, red and the low green LEDs and the infrared semiconductor lasers had already been developed, but there was no prospect of practical blue light emitters, even in the ’70s.
I still love the semiconductor industry.
They were the largest semiconductor maker in the world up until about 1980. I’m not sure that that can be re-gained again, but their progress in the last few years has been very impressive.
