For evolution of LSIs there is the famous Moore’s law, which tells that integration of LSI (number of transistors installed on one chip) grows to be quadruple every three years.
This Moore’s law is not a natural law, e.g. the integration grows not spontaneously. It is a requirement, which every venders should meet to keep his product always successful. Or it is a standard to evaluate the quality of a technology. One could say for example, “Vendor A is enough productive, because his products always meet Moore’s law,” or “Your design for the new LSI is useless, because it can’t satisfy Moore’s law!”
It could be called rather “Moore’s wish” or “Moore’s psychic power” – so our professor says.
