Over the longer term, the rate of increase is a bit more uncertain, although there is no reason to believe it will not remain nearly constant for at least 10 years. That means by 1975, the number of components per integrated circuit for minimum cost will be 65,000." - Gordon Moore Electronics Magazine, 1965 The number of transistors on a chip will double approximately every two years. - Moore's Law
  3. 3. So... What's a Transistor? a transistor is a semiconductor device commonly used to amplify or switch electronic signals.
