MOORE'S LAW By: Julia Marugam

What is Moore's Law?

Moore's Law is a prediction or an observation that the number of transistors in a device doubles approximately every two years.

5W : Who AND WHEN?

Gordon Moore made the prediction in 1965

HOW and Why?

He worked for a magazine and he was asked to predict what was going to happen in the future with semiconductor components industry so he wrote what he thought was going to happen. He wrote "Cramming more components onto integrated circuits".

Where?

He predicted it in Canada.

Evolution

Moore's Law was accepted throughout the world, some people even accepted it as a challenge and started to increase the processing power of the computers. Moore's Law has helped create many of our Laptops, HD displays, cameras and many things more. Thanks to Moore's Law and some advances with manufacturing it has allowed to shrink circuit lines to 14nm range. Thanks to this shrinkage it has allowed Intel® Core™ processor to have 1.9 billion transistors!!!
