Intel and the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation announce that Intel co-founder, Gordon Moore has died, surrounded by his family in Hawaii, at the age of 94. Moore co-founded Intel with his longtime friend Robert Noyce in 1968, but is perhaps best known as the creator of Moore’s Law.
Moore’s Law, originally written in 1965, states that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every year. This law served as a goal that helped move the semiconductor industry forward. In 1975, Moore revised this law to predict the doubling of transistors every two years, which, despite much debate, remains largely true today.
After becoming part of the founding group of Fairchild Semiconductor, Moore and Noyce founded Intel in July 1968. Their first employee was Andy Grove, and the three of them led Intel to success.
Moore initially served as executive vice president until 1975, then as company president until he was named CEO and chairman of the board in 1979. He relinquished the role of CEO in 1987. Moore continued to serve as chairman until 1997, when he was named chairman emeritus . He held that position until he stepped down in 2006.
