Law360, New York (June 24, 2011, 5:46 PM EDT) -- Microprocessor visionary Gordon Moore predicted in the 1960s that the number of transistors that could fit into a single integrated circuit would double approximately every two years. This prediction was popularly termed “Moore’s law,” and it has held true not only for transistor count, but for memory capacity and microprocessor speed as well.
Today, Moore’s Law has proven to be so accurate that it both drives competition and serves as the foundation of every long-term planning strategy and every research and development effort in the semiconductor...
