Texas Instruments, one of the largest semiconductor manufacturers in the world, has named a $150 million research and development centre after Jack Kilby, a pioneer of the integrated circuit, which revolutionised the electronics industry from the 1960s onwards.
TI claims that Kilby was responsible for making the first IC when he worked for TI in 1958.
But that claim is hotly disputed by semiconductor engineers around the world. The now defunct UK company Mullard said it baked the first IC, while other chip companies also claim the honour.
Last year, Intel said that it was responsible for the world's first microprocessor - a claim that is also hotly disputed.
