Example text

That is, the number of components per chip had roughly doubled every two years, and Moore forecast that this would continue. And indeed it did, although by the mid to late 1970s, the rate of increase was starting to tail off; it was suggested that the law should be amended to state that the number of components per chip doubles every two years, although the law can still be made to hold if wiring is included in the device count. The fine detail is less important than the overall message: an exponential growth of functionality for given cost could be expected and producers and consumers alike should plan accordingly.

Moore’s law could only be achieved if the manufacturers of semiconductor fabrication equipment undertook a certain level of R&D expenditure, as well as other investment, and if chip manufacturers themselves invested in this technology and in the requisite skills and expertise to make working chips from such technology. But why should the investment programmes of these companies be at just the right 36 THE STRATEGIC ROLE OF VISIONS OF THE FUTURE level to ensure this rate of technology progress? How could it be known or guessed that they would invest just that much?

As is well known, however, this alternative vision turned out to be right as a forecast of future developments, and (most commentators would now agree) right in a value sense. But even if the vision of local customisation turned out to be wrong as a forecast of the main future developments in the technology, it is (we argue) essential to understand it if one is to understand the relationship between the speed and direction of technology change and the development of market structure in the early 1970s (see chapter 5).
