The Chip That Jack Built 

 

A short film from KERA profiling Nobel Prize Winner Jack Kilby, the Texas Instruments engineer who co-invented the integrated circuit (more commonly known as a microchip):

Anyone here ever crossed paths with Jack Kilby?

 

No—but FYI, the “Additional resources” links on kera.org are all broken. Those I could find are now

Couldn’t pass up a Jack Kilbey reference.  He had good taste in O-scopes.  I’m sure it’s just a prop though.

It is (or was) in the TI North Dallas/Richardson campus.

In 1958, EICO offered the model 425. I spotted the EICO 460 o'scope, same model as your second photo, in the 1962 Burnstein-Applebee catalog. Might or might not be what Jack actually used, but at least it's close to period-correct.
