Fable: The Inventor-CEO
A long-serving semiconductor CEO co-invented the blue LED while a student at Stanford University. The work he initiated later won a Nobel Prize.
The CEO developed the speech synthesis ICs used in TI’s famous Speak & Spell and the first commercial programme to calculate the Black-Scholes value of a stock option. He was in chargeThe amount of electricity present upon the capacitor’s plates. Also, the act of forcing of electrons onto the capacitor’s plates. See CoulombA coulomb is the unit of electric charge. It is named after Charles-Augustin de Coulomb.1 coulomb is the amount of electric charge transported by a current of 1 ampere in 1 second. It can also be defined in terms of capacitance and voltage, where one coulomb is defined as one farad of capacitance times one volt of electric potential difference.. of TI’s TMS320 DSP development.
For 22 years he has been CEO of a company which has $1 billion a year plus revenues.
