He demostrated that the 4004 could be used for applications other than calculators and vigorously campaigned inside Intel to make the 4004 available to the general market.
After having led from the beginning all of Intel's microprocessor development activity, at the time of his leaving Faggin was heading all of the MOS chip design activity, with the exception of dynamic memories.
Intel’s management punished Faggin by disowning him of his many contributions, attributing most of his credits in the creation of the microprocessor to Ted Hoff, and by encouraging lesser contributors to grab a bigger share and play a bigger role than they did to diminish Faggin's legacy.

 Intel 4004 - the First Microprocessor from 1971
The Intel 4004 was originally designed for use in a Busicom scientific calculator, but Intel engineers realized the design of the chip afforded multi-purpose use - thus the microprocessor was born.
The 4004 contains 2000 transistors and is a 4-bit microprocessor capable of processing 4 bits of information at a time at a rate of about 0.06 MHz.
But the 4004 found widespread use in many applications, including being used on the Pioneer 10 spacecraft launched in 1972.

Intel had been commited by Nippon Calculating Machine Corporation (later Busicom) to develop a chip family for a calculator - the Busicom 141-PF.
Busicom chose Mostek and Intel for the development of the chipset since these were the only two companies, who were experienced in silicon gate MOS technology at this time.
The introduction of the 4004 to the general market started in November 1971 after Intel had recovered the rights to use the microprocessor design and to market it for non-calculator applications.

 Intel 4004 definition by The Linux Information Project (LINFO)
The origin of the 4004 can be traced back to late 1969 when Busicom, a Japanese company, requested the design of twelve custom chips for functions such as keyboard scanning, display control and printer control for a calculator that it was planning.
Intel followed a clever marketing plan to encourage the development of applications for the 4004 chip, leading to its widespread use within months.
Federico Faggin signed the 4004 because he was the leader of the design/development project of the first microprocessor, and brought it to its successful conclusion.

Der Intel 4004 ist ein 4-Bit-Mikroprozessor des Mikrochipherstellers Intel, der 1971 auf den Markt kam.
Intel war damals der Hersteller mit der größten verfügbaren Integrationsdichte.
Intel kaufte später die Rechte am Design des Intel 4004 für 60.000 US-Dollar von Busicom zurück, was sich noch als genialer Schachzug erweisen sollte.

 The 4004 Microprocessor
The 4004 was introduced as the world's first microprocessor on the 15th of November, 1971.
Wires were welded to the 16 small square pads around the edge of the chip, and then to the pins on the outside of the DIP to make connections with other parts on a circuit board.
Once Intel realised the potential of the new chips, the company offered Busicom a lower price in return for the rights to the microprocessor design and the rights to market it for non-calculator applications.

Intel 4004 is the world's first commercial central unit processor (CPU) and also the first 4-bit microprocessor for calculators.
Originally, Intel produced this chip for Busicom, a Japanese calculator company, to be used in their 141-PF calculators.

1971 Intel intoduces the microcomputer idustry with the Intel (4004) microprocessor
Intel introduced the 8080, a 2-MHz, 6,000-transistor microprocessor with 16-bit addressing that was eventually to become the heart of the MITS Altair, the first microcomputer.
Intel's 4004 (4-bit) microprocessor was the on the market, however, and in 1974 they added the 8080 (8-bit), sixteen times more powerful.

 The 8008 & The 8080
Computer Terminal Corporation (later known as Datapoint) had visited Intel in late 1969 to contract Intel to design and build a custom bipolar memory chip for their small CPU, which was to be built using TTL logic components (as was customary in those days).
Intel entered into a development contract with CTC in early 1970 and Hal Feeney was assigned to work on the chip.
It was restarted after Faggin had finished the 4004 and was free to supervise the project.

 Multi-Core Processors   (Site not responding. Last check: )
One brilliance of the Intel 4004 was that Intel engineer Ted Hoff sensed that the time had finally arrived when such a device was probably feasible, but just barely as it turned out.
Intel subsequently delayed filing a patent on the device though things substantially changed 14 years later when Intel exited its memory business for microprocessors.
Thus, though the Intel 4004 had a 740 KHz Maximum clock speed and required a minimum of eight cycles per instruction, packaging pin count considerations forced it to use a single 4-bit bus to transfer 12-bit addresses; 41 8-bit and five 16-bit instructions; and 4-bit data words to and from its 16 4-bit registers.

 Intel 4004 microprocessor family
The first microprocessor in history, Intel 4004 was a 4-bit CPU designed for usage in calculators, or, as we say now, designed for "embedded applications".
Although the Intel 4004 was perfect fit for calculators and similar applications it was not very suitable for microcomputer use due to its somewhat limited architecture.
As the first microprocessor in history, the Intel 4004 is very popular with CPU collectors and non-collectors.

 Intel 4004
Intel had a prototype of this central processor since 1969 and the costs of development were already paid for.
Now Intel had to make a choice: either they shelved the project or the chip could be used as model for a chip that Intel could make and pay for by them selves.
So the first single chip CPU was the Intel 4004.

From the introduction of Intel's 4004 chip in 1971 to today's quad-core desktop chips with four processing engines, the evolution of the commercial microprocessor has come a long way in just 35 years.
Intel (INTC) managed to deliver the four chips to Busicom by March of 1971 and Busicom eventually sold 100,000 141-PF printing calculators, according to Hoff.
In large part, it was the last-minute rush to meet Busicom's deadline that helped Intel edge out Texas Instruments (TXN) — a company that was also close to completing its own microprocessor in 1971 —; and marked an important (and lucrative) change for a company whose previous focus was solely on making memory chips.

The 4004 contained enough elements to be put on 16 chips, and combining it all into the 4004 began a series of chips that eventually led to today's desktop computers.
Intel states, "We got into the computer business more or less by mistake." CNET has a big article all about it.
The #1 neat thing about the 4004 was that it was a static processor, meaning, you could literally hook it to a pushbutton 'clock' and with LED's, watch the various pins go hi & lo as the instructions trickled through the core.
