The Life and Work of Gordon Moore: Stories of Tradition and Revolution

Loading Events

This presentation will survey the life and work of Gordon E. Moore, cofounder of Fairchild Semiconductor and Intel, and the author of a fundamental analysis of the dynamics of semiconductor manufacturing technology that has come to be known as “Moore’s Law.” In particular, the presentation will examine two contrasting themes that ran throughout Moore’s experience: tradition and revolution. The presentation will cover Moore’s family background and formation as shaped by the long history of Anglo settlement on the San Francisco Peninsula, and review his participation in and analysis of the astonishing technological revolution of the silicon integrated circuit.
