Intel Fellow Ian Alexander Young, an Intel employee since 1983, is the Director of Advanced Circuit and Technology Integration, Portland Technology Development, in Hillsboro, Ore. He is responsible for defining and developing future circuit directions and optimizing the manufacturing process technology for high-performance microprocessor products. He is also responsible for the development of clock generators for microprocessors, and identification of new CAD design tool requirements and circuit modeling capabilities for high-performance and low-power design.
Mr. Young's first position at Intel was Staff Design Engineer, Portland Technology Development, in Hillsboro. In his work on many projects throughout his 13 years at Intel, he has risen through the ranks of Portland Technology Development to head Advanced Circuit Design and Technology Integration.
Mr. Young was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1951. He received his Bachelor�s and Master�s in Electrical Engineering from the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 1972 and 1975. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 1978. Prior to Intel, Mr. Young worked on analog/digital integrated circuits for Telecommunications at Mostek Corporation, and did some consulting work.
Since 1983, he has been the inventor/co-inventor of 14 patents issued to Intel Corporation and three patents pending to Intel Corporation. Prior to 1983, he was the inventor/co-inventor of five patents issued to Mostek Corporation. He has written seven internal technical publications for the Intel Design Technology Conference, and Intel Technical Journal, as well as 17 external technical publications for IEEE journals.
Mr. Young is a member of the Intel Patent Review Committee (TMG) since 1993; a member of Intel�s Mobile Research Council for University research funding, 1994, 1995; and a Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) Research Mentor, 1991-1995. He is a member of many professional organizations, including IEEE, since 1975 and a Senior Member of IEEE, since 1996.
Mr. Young has received the Intel Achievement Award, May 1991, "For the contribution made in the design of an analog PLL for 50-MHz Intel 486 microprocessor chip set. The functional silicon exceeds design requirements." He has also received the Intel Achievement Award, April 1992, "For contributions made to the team defining and implementing a unique, cost effective approach to BiCMOS processing for Intel." Mr. Young also received the Low Power Innovation Award, 1994, Microprocessor Products Group, for contributions to developing understanding of low power circuit design �Best Known Methods� and promoting attention to Energy and Speed trade-offs in design throughout the company.
