Intel Corporation (also known as Intel, stylized as intel) is an American multinational corporation and technology company headquartered in Santa Clara, California, in the Silicon Valley. Founded on July 18, 1968 as Integrated Electronics Corporation (though a common misconception is that "Intel" comes from the word intelligence) by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, and often associated with executive management and vision of Andrew Grove.

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 (PCs).
