Hewlett Packard (HP)

HP, formerly Hewlett Packard, came to be when Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard became friends at Stanford University. Soon thereafter the pair formed a two-person company in a rented garage, the original Silicon Valley startup. The rented garage only measured 12’ by 18’ and was comprised of a concrete floor and a workbench, but it was enough for Bill and Dave to develop prototype products. Working with only limited resources, the two created a series of products. Their first breakthrough was the resistance-tuned audio oscillator, which ended up spawning HP’s first product line.

Together in their garage Dave and Bill produced the Model 200A audio oscillator, the first practical, low-cost method of generating high-quality frequencies. Their efforts impressed Walt Disney Studios, and after some slight modifications to the design, the Model 200B was developed and sold to Disney as a new way to monitor sound for their new movie Fantasia, slated to be released in 1940. The Disney purchase set the course for a legacy of innovation and leadership. In 1987 the garage was registered as California Historical Landmark No. 976 and was officially declared the “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
