Most Powerful Semiconductors quotations

The next major explosion is going to be when genetics and computers come together. I'm talking about an organic computer - about biological substances that can function like a semiconductor.

In order for the United States to do the right things for the long term, it appears to be helpful for us to have the prospect of humiliation. Sputnik helped us fund good science - really good science: the semiconductor came out of it.

I would say that hardware is the bone of the head, the skull.

The semiconductor is the brain within the head. The software is the wisdom and data is the knowledge.

This year - a factory of semiconductors. Next year - a factory of whole conductors!

Some people can do one thing magnificently, like Michelangelo, and others make things like semiconductors or build 747 airplanes -- that type of work requires legions of people. In order to do things well, that can't be done by one person, you must find extraordinary people.

So I, I knew something in a business sense about semiconductors and I appreciated their possibilities.

The cost of a semiconductor chip fabrication plant doubles every four years.

It was at Bell Labs that I first made direct contact with real semiconductor experts and thus began to fully understand what amazing materials they were and what they could do.

One of the most striking developments has been the rise, fall and rise again of the semiconductor industry of the United States, which is, once again, the dominant player in the most advanced semiconductor product-markets.

They were the largest semiconductor maker in the world up until about 1980.

I'm not sure that that can be re-gained again, but their progress in the last few years has been very impressive.

I think it's doing very well. I'm pleased to see the concentration on semiconductors. I think this will help.
