(In Depth, Oct. 5, 1998) In 1965, an engineer at Fairchild Semiconductor named
Gordon Moore noted that the number of transistors on a chip doubled every 18 to 24
months. A corollary to "Moore
's Law," as that observation came to be known, is that
the speed of microprocessors, at a constant cost, also doubles every 18 to 24
months.

Moore's Law has held up for more than 30 years. It worked in 1969 when Moore's
