Milestone: Moore’s Law, 1965
Dedication Date: August 15, 2018
This event at the Computer History Museum (CHM) will start with the unveiling of an IEEE Milestone bronze plaque for Moore’s Law by IEEE 2017 President Karen Bartleson. This will be followed by a discussion titled “Tomorrow’s Computers: More Moore?” which will include a panel from Intel and DARPA discussing the future of semiconductors and how we view Moore’s Law. The moderator for this discussion will be David Brock, Director of the Center for Software History at the CHM and co-author of the book Moore’s Law.
This is a free Computer History Museum event. Registration is required (limit on number of attendees). Register now
Note: The citation for this IEEE Milestone plaque is provided below.
Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Fairchild and Intel, began his work in silicon microelectronics at Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory in 1956. His 1965 prediction at Fairchild Semiconductor, subsequently known as “Moore’s Law,” that the number of components on an integrated circuit will increase exponentially with time while cost per function decreases, guided the industry’s contributions to advances in electronics and computing for more than fifty years.
