Kudos to Google and Doodle! What a wondeful tribute to pioneers. EETimes should have wrote little more detail about life and work of Robert Noyce.

Nice tribute to a true pioneer. Really shows that Google is a software company, though. Hardware guys wouldn't have put the Pin #1 dot next to pin 16...:)

We are also at the 40th anniversary of the Intel 4004 4-bit processor and its family of memory and I/O chips. Wikipedia has a good section on this interesting chip: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_4004.

Very nice tribute by Google...but I have to wonder how many people look at the image and say "what the heck is that supposed to be...???".

For an excellent history of Fairchild, our industry, and Noyce's role, see "Makers of the Microchip: A Documentary History of Fairchild Semiconductor", by Christophe Lecuyer and David C Brook; this book was a real treat and window into one of the companies and its brilliant, hard-working people that made semiconductors real and manufacturable in volume. Also has images (facsimiles) of meeting notes, and typed memos—some are quite riveting and prescient.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
