Folks,

In a recent** ****post**, I discussed **Moore’s Law**. I challenged readers to solve for “a” and “b” from the equation a*2^(b*(year-1970)) from the graph in Figure 1.

Moore’s Law posits that the number of transistors doubles every two years. If so, “b” should be 0.5. It ends up that “b”, from the solution in Figure 2, is 0.4885, so a double occurs about 1/0.4885 =2.047 years, but this number is really close to two years. The solution follows:

BTW, congrats to Indium Corporation’s Dr. **Huaguang Wang **as he got a close solution.

Cheers,

Dr. Ron
