This postulate was formed by Gordon Moore in 1965 who was the Intel co-founder. He predicted that the number of the transistors per square inch will double on integrated circuits every two years.


The law is generally used in the semiconductor/electronics industry which helps them in making long-term planning and for setting limits for research and development purpose.
