He earned B.A. in Physics from Grinnell College in 1980, B.S. from Washington University in St. Louis in 1981, and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Portland State University in 1991. Dave worked in a large defense-related company building custom CMOS chips for communication systems, a small startup company building mixed analog-digital chips for campus-wide private branch exchange systems and a micro-processor control boards for a moderate sized medical imaging company. Dave Joined Intel in 1988 and worked on the networking chips, subsystems for the Paragon line of parallel supercomputers, and the ASCI Red supercomputer. Dave has done extensive circuit design for high speed signaling and analog circuits. He chaired the PCI SIG PCE Express electrical work group for its first four years and was one of five core architects of the Virtual Interface Architecture--the precursor to what became the InfiniBand standard. Dave was the engineering manager for the DARPA funded UHPC project, code named Runnemede; a research project investigating high performance, energy efficient system design. Most recently Dave has been focusing on low energy memory solutions and interconnect technologies. Dave holds over 50 patents.
