Jack Kilby, in full Jack St. Clair Kilby, (born Nov. 8, 1923, Jefferson City, Mo., U.S.—died June 20, 2005, Dallas, Texas), American engineer and one of the inventors of the integrated circuit, a system of interconnected transistors on a single microchip. In 2000 Kilby was a corecipient, with Herbert Kroemer and Zhores Alferov, of the Nobel Prize for Physics.
Jack Kilby Biographical T he Nobel Committee has asked me to discuss my life story, so I guess I should begin at the beginning. I was born in 1923 in Great Bend, Kansas, which got its name because the town was built at the spot where the Arkansas River bends in the middle of the state.
In 1958, Jack Kilby began working for Texas Instruments of Dallas, where he invented the microchip. Kilby died on June 20, 2005 in Dallas, Texas. Jack Kilby's Honors and Positions From 1978 to 1984, Jack Kilby was a Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University. In 1970, Kilby received the National Medal of Science.

In 1959, Jack Kilby filed for a patent for the first integrated circuit–also known as the microchip. As an employee of Texas Instruments, Jack Kilby’s work also resulted in the first handheld calculator, the “Pocketronic,” as well as the invention of the first thermal printer. In December of 2000, Jack Kilby was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. Other honors include the National Medal of Science and the National Medal of Technology.
Jack Kilby from Texas Instruments held 60 patents, invented the handheld calculator, and won a Nobel Prize. But he had another invention that would change electronics and the world. Jack Kilby began his career at Texas Instruments in 1958, where he went on to invent arguably the most important invention of the 20th century: the integrated circuit , also known as the microchip.
Jack Kilby’s demonstration of the first working integrated circuit (IC) in 1958 revolutionized the field of microelectronics. Instead of using discrete transistors, resistors, and capacitors to form a circuit, Kilby’s IC design integrated a transistor, a capacitor, and the equivalent of three resistors all on the same chip.
A round the Dallas campus of Texas Instruments, Jack Kilby is known as the humble giant, a nod to his modesty and his six-foot, six-inch frame. But he’s a giant in terms of his accomplishments ...
Jack Kilby holds patents on more than 60 inventions and is also well known as the inventor of the portable calculator in 1967. In 1970, he was awarded the National Medal of Science. Robert Noyce, with 16 patents to his name, founded Intel, the company responsible for the invention of the microprocessor in 1968.
