Revisiting Moore’s Law, 50 Years Later

Revisiting Moore’s Law, 50 Years Later

The end is near. Or is it? According to some, the beneficial projections of Gordon Moore about the increasing number of transistors per chip over time are slowly coming to an end. But others say, wait, not so fast. Even Moore, a co-founder of Intel, says it may not be over yet for a decade or so. All this discussion and conjecture comes about as a result of the 50-year anniversary of Moore’s original projection in the April 1965 issue of Electronics magazine. Moore’s original prediction was that the number of transistors per chip would double each year. That was correct, but the “law” was subsequently modified in 1975 and beyond. With some types of transistors and circuits, the number of transistors doubled every two years and every 18 months for others. This has remained consistently true for decades. Today, some chip companies can make over 10 billion transistors per chi...
