About Western Digital
Western Digital was founded on April 23, 1970, by Alvin B. Phillips under the name General Digital. Just over a year after it was founded, Western Digital became the official name of the company. Although today, it is one of the largest computer hard disk drive manufacturers in the world, it did not start out as data storage company. At the beginning of its life, Western Digital made its money by selling calculator chips. However, the owners of the company knew this was not going to cut it, so by the late 1970’s Western Digital began releasing a different kind of product. A micro-coded CPU, the MCP-1600 multi-chip, was among the first products released in this new phase. By the early 1980’s, Western Digital made its way into the data storage industry with the release of the FD1771 and products alike. The 1980’s were a big time for this company, with the purchase of several hardware companies, the release of the first single-chip ATA hard disk controller (the WD42C22 “Vanilla”), and the purchase of the hard drive production assets of Tandon. From this time to the present, Western Digital continues to expand and take over the hard disk drive market.
