Co--Founded Intel, he suggests that integrated circuits would double in complexity every 18 months. This later becomes known as Moore's Law(3), and is applied to microprocessor speed. Founds the Moore Foundation.
Gordon E. Moore co-founded Intel in 1968 as a specialized manufacturer of memory products. Serving long terms as President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman, he led the company to produce the world's first microprocessor and on to become the world's largest producer of computer chips. His 1965 prediction that the transistor density of integrated circuits would double every 18 months, now known as "Moore's Law", has proven remarkably accurate for more than two decades, and has inspired the industry to continue delivering increasingly powerful semiconductors at ever-lower costs.
Born in San Francisco and educated at UC Berkeley and
CalTech, Moore remains active in Bay Area business, education, and
