Summary

Summary

Advanced Micro Devices has been a revolutionary presence in the semiconductor industry since it was incorporated May 1, 1969. Founded by a group of former Fairchild Semiconductor employees, Jerry Sanders provided the genius, charisma and vision needed to thrust AMD into a position of global leadership with nearly 13,000 employees worldwide and sales of $2.5 billion. AMD is a leading provider of microprocessors and related technologies, flash memories, programmable logic devices and circuits for telecommunications and networking applications. Best-selling author Jeffrey L. Rodengen has interviewed scores of past and present employees to craft this comprehensive, anecdotal book about AMD. Individually boxed.
