In 1965, one of Intel's founders, Gordon Moore, made a prediction that the number of transistors on a piece of silicon would double every couple of years – an insight later dubbed "Moore's Law." His prediction has held true, as ever-shrinking transistor sizes have allowed exponential growth in the number of transistors on a single chip. For decades, Intel has continued its investment in technology and manufacturing creating a worldwide presence with leading-edge technologies built with responsible and responsive operations. These investments have resulted in an unparalleled silicon expertise that has made and will continue to make Moore's Law a reality.
