When we think of semiconductors, the first company that comes to mind is Intel. In fact, Intel was founded by Gordon Moore who famously proposed Moore's Law.
Intel is no longer the largest semiconductor company on Earth. Samsung is the largest semiconductor company but Samsung is more than just a semiconductor company.
Intel was founded in 1968 by Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce. The real boost to the company happened when IBM made its PC and Intel made the x86 microprocessors with AMD as second-sourced manufacturer.
Today, Intel is moving more towards data center, internet of things. 5G is going to be a boost to Intel.
