Is Moore’s law still valid?

Gordon E. Moore, credited for bringing laptop computers to hundreds of millions of people and embedding microprocessors into everyday devices, passed away at the age of 94 last week. Moore observed that the number of transistors on a microchip doubles about every two years, though the cost of computers is halved; this became known as Moore’s law in 1965. Moore’s law has guided the global semiconductor industry for decades, though it’s been challenged in recent years. Check out our 2013 article on Moore’s law and then dive into insights by senior partners Harald Bauer, Ondrej Burkacky, Mark Patel, and others to uncover the latest megatrends in semiconductors, why semiconductors could be a $1 trillion dollar industry by the end of the decade, and how manufacturers and designers could ensure they’re well placed to reap the rewards.
