Intel’s Business Plan in 1968:
The company will engage in Research, Development and manufacture and sales of integrated electronic structures to fulfill the needs of electronic system manufactures. This will include thin films, thick films, semiconductor devices and other solid state component used in hybrid and monolithic integrated structures
A variety of process will be established both at a laboratory and production level. These include crystal growth, slicing, polishing, solid state diffusion, photo lithographic masking, vacuum evaporation, film disposition,assembly, packaging and testing as well as the development and manufacture of special processing and testing equipment required to carry out those process.
Products may include dioded transistors, field effective devices, photo sensitive devices, photo emitting devices, integrated circuits and subsystems commonly referred to by the phrase “large scale integration” principal customers for these products are expected to be the manufacture of advance electronic systems for communications, radar, control and data processing. It is anticipated that many of these customers will be located outside California
