Our history of innovation

Micron began in 1978 as a four-person semiconductor design company in the basement of a Boise, Idaho dental office. By 1980, we had broken ground on our first fabrication plant, and then just a few years later we introduced the world's smallest 256K DRAM. In 1994, we earned a spot on the Fortune 500 and steadily grew into an industry leader through our technology innovations, key partnerships, and strategic acquisitions around the world. Check out the milestones that have made us who we are today.
