The most important 上海楼凤女神会所 regions growth

The most importa上海楼凤女神会所nt technology for the region’s growth was, of course, the semico

nductor. William Shockley, who had been one of the inventors of the en Noyce lost a power st

ruggle to become CEO. He took Gordon Moore and founded a company that they called Integrated Electronics

Corporation, which they soon smartly abbreviated to Intel. Their third employe

e was Andrew Grove, who later would grow the company by shifting its focus from memory

chips to microprocessors. Within a few years there would be more than fifty companies in the area making semiconductors.

The exponential growth of this industry was correlated with the phenomenon famously discovered by Moore, who in 1965 drew a gra

ph of the speed of integrated circuits, based on the number of transistors that could be placed on a chip, and

showed that it doubled about every two years, a trajectory that could be

expected to continue. This was reaffirmed in 1971, when Intel was able to etch a complete central

processing unit onto one chip, the Intel 4004, which was dubbed a “microprocessor.” Moore’s Law has held generally tru

e to this day, and its reliable projection of performance to price allowed two generations of young
