Hired into IBM April 1970 and have had various assignments in memory chip design on both static and dynamic memory, logic, automated logic wiring, alterable logic, and alterable memory devices. Initially did the original work on one device DRAM memory chips for 1K, 2K, and the 8K, which was presented in 1973 at the ISSCC. Other activities, over the years, included work on automated wiring, simulation and checking programs for both logic and memory card design; silicon rich oxide and silicon rich nitride alterable devices used as both memory or logic; and design efforts and consultation on 1M, 4M, 16M, 256M, 1G, 4G and 16G DRAM cells, test sites and product designs. Over the last several years have lead the work on an ASIC library embedded DRAM macro and the concept of precision align macros for enhanced productivity. Awarded the distinction of IBM Fellow in IBM June 1990.
