Moore published a 1965 article in Electronics magazine predicting that the power of microchip technology would double every year for the next decade. "Moore's Law" has turned out to be remarkably accurate, perhaps partly because it came to be seen as a goal for the designers and builders of computers.

Inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2009.
