Robert Noyce was once known as the Mayor of Silicon Valley. He founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957. He is credited with inventing the integrated chip (along with Jack Kilby). Fairchild Semiconductor filed a patent for a semiconductor integrated circuit based on the planar process on July 30, 1959. That was the first time he revolutionised the semiconductor industry. Noyce stayed with Fairchild until 1968, when he left with Gordon Moore to found Intel. At Intel, he oversaw Ted Hoff's invention of the microprocessor.
