the Infinite Loop campus was originally built in the late 70s by Four Phase Systems, who made the first all-LSI minicomputer systems. The site included foundry space, where they designed and made their own LSI components. (Apple was scattered around the local area back then, much of it in buildings fronting De Anza Blvd.) Four Phase faltered in the early 80s, got bought, eventually moving to Arizona under Motorola, finally being smothered in its bed with a pillow.
