General Instrument - Microchip  Company Overview

General Instrument was founded in 1939. GI was a manufacturer of transistors and diodes in the 1950's and 1960's. General Instrument produced logic chips in the 1960's and created the PIC (Programmable Intelligent Computer) line of microprocessors in 1976.

General Instrument was a diversified electronics manufacturer which specialised in semiconductors and cable television equipment. The company was active until 1997, when it split into General Semiconductor (power semiconductors), Comscope and NextLevel Systems (the cable and satellite TV division, which later reverted to the GI name). The new (post-split) General Instrument Corporation was later acquired by Motorola and became Motorola Broadband Communications Sector.

The microprocessors along with the rest of the Microelectronics Division were spun-off as Microchip Technology in 1989.
