Gordon Moore

On April 19, 1965, in his paper "Cramming More Components Onto Integrated Circuits," Gordon Moore made an observation, later commonly referred to as Moore's Law.

The observation was that ever since the integrated circuit was 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.
