Dear , ValleyPBS Viewer

In 1957, decades before Steve Jobs dreamed up Apple or Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, a group of eight brilliant young men defected from the Shockley Semiconductor Company in order to start their own transistor business. Their leader was 29-year-old Robert Noyce, a physicist with a brilliant mind and the affability of a born salesman who would co-invent the microchip. This is now an essential component of nearly all modern electronics today, including computers, motor vehicles, cell phones and household appliances.

In Silicon Valley: American Experience, this documentary shares an eye-opening look at the birthplace of the modern technological era told by the people who shaped it. Silicon Valley: American Experience is a fascinating reminder of how Robert Noyce and his team of trailblazers led the way in transforming California's Santa Clara Valley into a worldwide hub of industry and innovation, and laid the bedrock for modern technology.

Tune in Tuesday, February 5 at 9pm for Silicon Valley: American Experience!
