Moore's Law & Planned Obsolescence: Impact on Quality Standards


Recommended Posts

In AP Computer Science Principles we've learned about Moore's Law......

Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years.  Planned Obsolescence is the policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life or a purposely frail design, so that it becomes obsolete after a certain period of time.  How are these two systems related? In what specific ways might they impact the quality of computer hardware, the engineering design process, and technological progress?
