In the 50 years since Gordon Moore published his prediction about the future of the integrated circuit, the term “Moore’s Law” has become a household name. It’s constantly paraphrased, not always correctly. Sometimes it’s used to describe modern technological progress as a whole. As IEEE Spectrum put together its special report celebrating the semicentennial, I started a list of key facts that are often overlooked when Moore’s Law is discussed and covered. Here they are (sans animated gifs): 1. Moore’s Law changed over time. Gordon Moore originally predicted the complexity of integrated circuits— and so the number of components on them— would double every year. In 1975, he revised his prediction to a doubling every two years. 2. It’s not just about smaller, faster transistors. At its core, Moore’s prediction was about the economics of chipmaking , building ever-more sophis...
