Scott Thompson named IEEE Fellow
Dr. Thompson is a professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Florida focusing on advanced transistor technologies. Dr. Thompson also started a 55 person low power technology company called SuVolta and is responsible for developing SuVolta’s advanced low power technology platforms. Dr. Thompson was also an Intel Fellow, Director of Logic Technology and responsible for next generation process integration, technology yield and transistor design at Intel. Dr. Thompson and his co-workers were the first to publish at the International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM) in 2002 on a 90nm logic technology which introduced high levels strain for significant mobility enhancement using SiGe. Dr. Thompson has published 80 papers and holds 25 patents all relating to transistor design and he was elected an IEEE Fellow for his contributions on submicron and nanoscale MOSFETs.
