1. Semiconductor Planar Process and Integrated Circuit Marker
Inscription.  The 1959 invention of the Planar Process by Jean A. Hoerni and the Integrated Circuit (IC) based on planar technology by Robert N. Noyce catapulted the semiconductor industry into the silicon IC era. This pair of pioneering inventions lead to the present IC industry which today supplies a wide and growing variety of advanced semiconductor products used throughout the world.
 
Erected 2009 by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
