Gordon MooreOn April 19, 1965 in his paper "Cramming More Components Onto Integrated Circuits," Gordon Moore made an observation that was later coined by the press as Moore's Law. The observation was that ever since the Integrated Circuit has been developed, the number of transistors contained within them has doubled every two years. Dr. Gordon Moore admitted that his law is expected to reach its physical limits in the year 2017.
