Silicon Valley Mourns The Loss Of Intel Co-Founder And Microchip Pioneer Gordon Moore At 94

Gordon Moore, semiconductor giant Intel’s co-founder and pioneer in the rise of computer chips, died on March 24 at the age of 94. Silicon Valley has lost one of its earliest leaders and visionaries and will be in mourning over the passing of Gordon Moore.

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation reported that he passed peacefully surrounded by family at his home in Hawaii. The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation was established by Moore and his wife in 2000.

Moore, along with his colleague Robert Noyce, set up NM Electronics in 1968 and later acquired the Intel brand name for $15,000. In 1965, the popular Moore’s Law was named after Gordon Moore. Moore predicted that the density of transistors on integrated circuits would double every year, which revolutionized computing and electronics and brought down costs.

The cost of transistors has gone down by several hundred million times since the beginning of the 1960s, thanks to Moore’s Law. The Intel microprocessor, the most important piece of computer hardware, powers about 80% of the world’s personal computers. Tributes for Moore are pouring in from several leaders in the technology industry, including Apple CEO Tim Cook and current Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, who praised Moore’s insight, vision, and lasting impact on the industry.
