Mr. Moore, who was enrolled at Fairchild Semiconductor in 1965, predicted (PDF file) that ``the number of transistors in a semiconductor integrated circuit will double every year'' based on his experience in the semiconductor industry. Later, this prediction was called 'Moore's Law', and in 1975, the prediction was revised to say that 'the number of transistors will double in two years.'

In 1968, he launched Intel with Mr. Noyce, and in 38 years until 2006, Mr. Moore, who served as vice president, president, chairman and CEO, and honorary chairman, pushed Intel into the world's largest semiconductor device manufacturer. .

On Friday, March 24, 2023, Intel reported on one of its official Twitter accounts that Moore died surrounded by his family at his home in Hawaii.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said, 'Moore defined the technology industry with his insight and perspective. 'Mr. Moore's leadership has shaped much of my career and life.'

Gelsinger added, 'He once said, 'If you do it, you can do it.' And those of us who follow in his footsteps will continue to work relentlessly. He left a legacy that changed the lives of every person on the planet. , his memory will live on.'

Google CEO Sundar Pichai also said, ``His vision has given us great inspiration in pursuing technology.''

``RIP Gordon Moore .

Computer scientist Urs Hölzle said, 'Moore has been contributing to the technology industry for decades, but it's been too long to understand how much Moore's influence has been on the industry. People are declining.Moore's Law is a vision and a message, and he made this law a reality, not a theory.'
