Lesson Plan, Video


So you may have heard of Moore\'s Law and while it isn\'t truly a law it has pretty closely estimated a trend we\'ve seen in the advancement of computing technologies. Moore\'s Law states that we\'ll see approximately a 2x increase in transistors in the same space every two years, and while this may not be true for much longer, it has dictated the advancements we\'ve seen since the introduction of transistors in the mid 1950s. So today we\'re going to talk about those improvements in hardware that made this possible - starting with the third generation of computing and integrated circuits (or ICs) and printed circuit boards (or PCBs). But as these technologies advanced a newer manufacturing process would bring us to the nanoscale manufacturing we have today - photolithography.
