On April 19, 1965, Electronics magazine published an article that would change the world. It was authored by Fairchild Semiconductor’s R&D director, who made the observation that transistors—the fundamental building blocks of the semiconductor—would decrease in cost and increase in performance at an exponential rate.

The law defines he trajectory of the semiconductor industry, with profound consequences that touch every aspect of our lives.
