This September 15, 2011, update includes 3 new video interviews with the award winners about their research projects and relationships with SRC.
August 15, 2011 — The university-research consortium Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) bestowed its Aristotle and Technical Excellence awards on professors from Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley).
Professor Robert Dutton, Stanford, received the SRC Aristotle Award for 2011, recognizing his outstanding teaching and deep commitment to the educational experience of his students. The Aristotle Award is given to SRC-funded university faculty. With SRC support, Dutton’s Stanford research team has pioneered the development of a suite of technology computer-aided design (TCAD) tools for simulation and modeling of integrated circuit (IC) fabrication processes. SRC assisted in developing the modeling capability, and in tuning it for semiconductor industry users, said Dutton.
The scope and impact of Stanford’s TCAD research ranges from fundamental electron and atomic-scale process physics contributions at the device- and process-levels to circuit-level
