The Intel Trinity: How Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove Built the World's Most Important Company

Available in: Hardcover

Based on unprecedented access to the corporation's archives, The Intel Trinity is the first full history of Intel Corporation--the essential company of the digital age-- told through the lives of the three most important figures in the company's history: Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove.

Often hailed the "most important company in the world," Intel remains, more than four decades after its inception, a defining company of the global digital economy. The legendary inventors of the microprocessor-the single most important product in the modern world-Intel today builds the tiny "engines" that power almost every intelligent electronic device on the planet.

But the true story of Intel is the human story of the trio of geniuses behind it. Michael S. Malone reveals how each brought different things to Intel, and at different times. Noyce, the most respected high tech figure of his generation, brought credibility (and money) to the company's founding; Moore made Intel the world's technological leader; and Grove, has relentlessly driven the company to ever-higher levels of success and competitiveness. Without any one of these figures, Intel would never have achieved its historic success; with them, Intel made possible the personal computer, Internet, telecommunications, and the personal electronics revolutions.

The Intel Trinity is not just the story of Intel's legendary past; it also offers an analysis of the formidable challenges that lie ahead as the company struggles to maintain its dominance, its culture, and its legacy.

With eight pages of black-and-white photos.


The Microprocessor: A Biography (Softcover Reprint of the Origi)

Available in: Paperback
Despite being an intimate part of our lives, most of us know almost nothing about the "computer on a chip." As a result, we are constantly making crucial business, political and personal decisions based on the future of the microprocessor, while intellectually standing in the dark. If we can understand how the microprocessor came into being, the state it is in today and where its future lies, we can learn a whole lot more about where we are now and where we are going. Now, for the very first time, Michael S. Malone tells the complete story of this amazing invention in his well-known and witty style. However, this is anything but an electronics textbook. Rather, it is a riveting and incisive adventure story about extraordinary people and the legendary companies they have built. It is a tale of huge success and devastating failure, steadfast partnerships and bitter rivalries - plus a liberal sprinkling of greed and wealth. Malone closes with a tantalising look into the future: emerging technologies, new software, and even speculation about what might lie beyond the microprocessor era.

Der Mikroprozessor: Eine Ungewohnliche Biographie (Softcover Reprint of the Origi)

Available in: Hardcover, Paperback
Das Buch prasentiert einen faszinierenden Uberblick uber die inzwischen 25-jahrige Geschichte des Mikroprozessors. Michael S. Malone beschreibt nicht allein die Herstellung und Arbeitsweise des Mikroprozessors auch in ihrer historischen Dimension, sondern lasst den Leser teilhaben an den spannenden Geschehnissen "hinter den Kulissen." Die Personlichkeiten und Unternehmen, die die Entwicklung des Mikroprozessors entscheidend pragten - und somit nicht unerheblichen Einfluss auf Veranderungen in unserer Gesellschaft hatten - werden ausfuhrlich gewurdigt. Ein Ausblick auf zukunftige Technologien und mogliche Entwicklungen "jenseits des Mikroprozessors" runden Malones geistreiche und unterhaltsam geschriebene Darstellung ab. Ich gehe davon aus, dass dieser U4-Text nicht verwendet werden soll, sondern der bereits auf dem Umschlagentwurf vorhandene, bitte ggf. mit Herrn Engesser/Frau Schindewolf abstimmen."
