Robert Dutton recognized for advancing chip technology

At its annual TECHON conference in September, the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) will name Stanford’s ROBERT DUTTON, professor of electrical engineering, as a winner of its Aristotle Award for world-class research in areas vital to the semiconductor industry. In particular, the Aristotle Award recognizes Dutton for outstanding teaching and a deep commitment to the educational experience of his students.

With SRC support, Dutton pioneered the development of a suite of technology computer-aided design (TCAD) tools for simulation and modeling of integrated circuit fabrication processes. The impact of Stanford’s TCAD research ranges from fundamental electron and atomic-scale process physics at the device- and process-levels to circuit-level “golden standard” simulations that validate compact device models.
