TI Dedicates "Kilby Labs" 50th Anniversary of the Integrated Circuit

Texas Instruments dedicated its new "Kilby Labs" on its Dallas North Campus on September 12, the 50th anniversary of the integrated circuit. The facility is named for IC inventor Jack Kilby.


TI has named Ajith Amerasekera as director of its new Kilby Labs. Ajith, who is a TI Fellow, joined the company in 1991 and holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Physics. He previously served as CTO for TI's application-specific integrated circuit division, and as the holder of 28 issued patents and author of four books on semiconductors, Ajith is well recognized in the international technical community.


"All of us at TI believe that technologies that significantly impact our lives are the right technologies for our business," said Rich Templeton, Chairman and CEO of TI, at the launch celebration held at the Semiconductor Building on TI's North Campus. "The power to help make the world healthier, safer, greener and more fun is what gets us excited about chip innovation, and why we come to work every day at TI. It's what motivated Jack Kilby to build the first IC and why he was able to transform the world through his ideas and inventions."
