50 Years of Moore's Law

Fifty years ago, in 1968, IEEE Device Research Conference was held at the University of Colorado Boulder. At that conference, Gordon Moore, Andy Grove and Robert Noyce founded the Intel Corporation.

Gordon Moore is famous for his observation that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles every two years. This observation became known as Moore’s Law.
