It is all because of the clear picture of the technology road map people had and the research & development efforts they made, to push the semiconductor industry follow the Moore’s law. It was all lead to a virtuous cycle of development in the industry: by down scaling the transistors, one gets better performance to cost ratio which in turn leads to an exponential growth in the industry. Then, one could spend more funds on the research to invent further miniaturizing technologies that are possible. But as the size of the transistors is reducing the design complexities
