During 1970, Intel came out with a chip, which was the best-selling semiconductor memory chip in the world. The chip was called Intel 1103 and it was first DRAM, dynamic Random Access Memory) chip. Dr. Robert H. Dennard developed it. He and his team had been working on it since 1966.
The engineers needed to build a new type of chip for a calculator in 1971. So, they came out with a chip called Intel 4004. It was the first single chip general-purpose microprocessor built by Intel. The chip was 4-bit and ran at a rate of 108 kHz and it also contained 2300 transistors. The chip dealt with up to 1 Kb of program memory and up to 4 Kb of data memory.
In the early 70s lots of new technology were being built. In 1973,... View More »
