IEEE Silicon Valley Milestones Dedicated

Two important milestone events were held on Wednesday, August 15th. The first was held at the Shockey Lab site in Mountain View, California and included an unveiling of an IEEE Milestone plaque for The Birthplace of Silicon Valley and a short presentation by Stanford’s Jim Gibbons. IEEE President James Jefferies helped officiate the afternoon event, which also introduced an amazing outdoor area that showcases the importance of this historical location, the Shockley Lab site where silicon devices were first fabricated.
