Texas-California battle over the IC invention

Summary : Who really invented the Integrated Circuit? In this video, Dan Hutcheson has a conversation with Wally Rhines about the Texas-California battle over who really invented it.
Annexure :

 

The Integrated Circuit was first implemented on August 28, 1958 by Jack Kilby as a heterogeneous IC made up of individual transistors wire-bonded together.  Almost 4 months later, to the day, Robert Noyce described a planar IC with lithographically patterned metal interconnect. The two patents were different enough for Texas Instruments and Fairchild Semiconductor to go to war in a courtroom over who really invented it. In this video, Dan Hutcheson has a conversation about the Texas-California battle for who really invented it the IC with Wally Rhines who knows it very well, having worked for 21 years at TI, in numerous semiconductor executive management positions
