Intel Corporation is an American multinational corporation and technology company headquartered in Santa Clara, California that was founded on July 18, 1968 by Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce.
It is the world's second largest and second highest valued semiconductor chip makers based on revenue after being overtaken by Samsung, and is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers.
Intel supplies processors for computer system manufacturers such as Apple, Lenovo, HP, and Dell. Intel also manufactures motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphics chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing.
The original "dropped-e" logo was designed by Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, who founded Intel. The blue insignia featured a clear sans-serif font. The "e" letter was placed lower than the "t" and "l", thus looking as if it has "fallen" from the line. The emblem was used from 1968 until the end of 2005.
In the early 90s the Intel Inside logo was created, which was used parallel with the previous one. It was a part of a new marketing strategy. So as to make more consumers aware of the fact that there were Intel processors in their computers, the company created a special "Intel Inside" emblem. The logo created in 1991 included elements from the Intel Inside advertising campaign.
