Gordon Earle Moore, a chemist with a PhD from the California Institute of Technology, was a key figure in the development of the semiconductor industry and silicon integrated circuit technology. Moore co-founded Fairchild Semiconductor, and, subsequently, the Intel Corporation. In 1965, Moore published an observation about the exponential pace of development in integrated circuit manufacturing technology that has come to be known as "Moore's law." Moore's contributions to semiconductor devices and the semiconductor industry have had a major impact on the development of Silicon Valley as a high-technology district.
