Mark Horowitz Receives 2022 Eckert-Mauchly Award

Mark Horowitz, a Professor at Stanford University, was named the recipient of the 2022 ACM - IEEE CS Eckert-Mauchly Award for for contributions to microprocessor memory systems. Horowitz was the first to identify the processor to dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) interface as a key bottleneck that required architecture and circuit optimization. He pioneered high-bandwidth DRAM interfaces. In addition, modern DRAM interfaces such as SDDR and LPDDR were strongly influenced by his techniques.
