 Moore's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gordon Moore's observation was not named a "law" by Moore himself; that honor goes to Caltech professor, VLSI pioneer, and entrepreneur Carver Mead.
However, on April 13, 2005, Gordon Moore himself stated in an interview that the law may not hold valid for too long, since transistors may reach the limits of miniaturization at atomic levels.
Moore's law is the empirical observation that at our rate of technological development, the complexity of an integrated circuit, with respect to minimum component cost will double in about 24 months.

 Gordon Moore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gordon Earl Moore (born January 3, 1929) is co-founder of Intel Corporation and the author of Moore's law (published in an article 19 April 1965 in Electronics Magazine).
In 2001, Moore (who is a Caltech trustee) and his wife donated $600 million to Caltech, the largest gift ever to an institution of higher education.
In April 1979, Dr. Moore became Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, holding that position until April 1987, when he became Chairman of the Board.

 SG - Gordon Moore visszavonul
Gordon Moore, a félvezetőipar egyik legjelentősebb alakja komoly szellemi örökséget hagy maga után, hiszen többek közt ő definiálta a később róla elnevezett Moore törvényt, miszerint a mikroprocesszorok tranzisztorszáma, és egyben sebessége körülbelül minden 18 hónapban megduplázódik.
Az Intel céget Gordon Moore, Andrew Grove és Robert Noyce alapította 1968 július 18-án, nem sokkal azután, hogy mindhárman kiléptek a Fairchild Semiconductor cégtől.
Moore egyébként azt is bevallotta, hogy rendkívüli módon frusztrálja az a tény, hogy amikor számítógépét használja, az még a mai napig is gyakran lefagy.

 Embedded.com - Era ends as Gordon Moore quits Intel's board
The man in question is Gordon Moore, who at the end of May quietly closed the final chapter in an extraordinary career that is inextricably linked to the history of the semiconductor industry itself.
Moore made explosives and rockets — fragments of which would pepper a neighbor's roof, "which wasn't much fun from their point of view." He tinkered with a variety of explosives, "but nitroglycerine was one of the easiest ones," he said.
Moore has served as president, chief executive officer, chairman and chairman emeritus of the chip giant, which has just estimated second-quarter revenue of between $6.2 billion and $6.8 billion.

 BBC NEWS Technology Moore predicts more advances
But Dr Gordon Moore, the creator of this legendary measurement, told a meeting of the world's top chip designers and engineers on Monday that its future will depend on their ability to innovate.
In 1965 Gordon Moore stated that the number of transistors on a semiconductor would double roughly every two years, as would overall chip performance.
Dr Moore predicts that the major stumbling block that scientists and engineers have to overcome in the future is that of power leakage and the need to reduce heat levels as more circuits are crammed onto a chip and housed closer together.

 PCWorld.com - Gordon Moore Looks Back--And Forward
Moore reread his paper about a year ago, he said, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it also foresaw the use of computers at home, although he had forgotten he made that prediction by the time the first home computer appeared.
Christened later as Moore's Law, his observation became something of a self-fulfilling prophecy for the industry, he said, driving computer makers to keep pace with the expected rate of advancement.
Moore, now 76, was director of research and development at Fairchild Semiconductor when his paper was published in Electronics Magazine on April 19, 1965.

 Calibrating Gordon Moore
Moore submitted his thesis on the infrared spectra and structure of a few simple molecules, and he took off for a research position at Johns Hopkins University& Applied Physics Laboratory, expecting to remain in or closely connected to academia.
Moore points to a theory that holds that “world population will peak sometime during this century and then drift down,” which would result in a decrease of pressure on resources some time after the population peak.
Moore, who refers to himself as a “fairly quiet” person, was sparsely quoted in the press when news of his and Betty’s unprecedented gift to Caltech broke last fall.

 USATODAY.com - Gordon Moore sees another decade for Moore's Law
Moore, 74, the creator of "Moore's Law," told a meeting of many of the world's preeminent chip designers that engineers must concentrate on overcoming power leakage and reducing heat levels as more and more circuits are crammed closer together.
Moore later boosted what is now known as Moore's Law to a prediction that the power of a chip would double every 20 months.
Current limitations on Moore's Law include electrical power leakage and heat dissipation that increases each time more transistors are packed into a smaller area, making chips "not far from the power density of a nuclear reactor," he quipped.
