Biographical Notes

Garth H. Wilson received a B.S.E.E. in 1956, M.S.E.E. in 1958 and Ph.D. in 1962 from the University of California, Berkeley. He joined the Fairchild Semiconductor R&D Laboratory, located in Palo Alto in 1966. A 1968 R& D organization chart shows him as Member of Technical Staff in the Linear Integrated Circuits section reporting to M. Rudin. As Linear IC Design Manager he worked with Ted Jenkins to build a Schottky diode structure compatible with integrated circuit processing technology. In 1969 he co-founded Precision Monolithics with Marv Rudin. He served as Managing Director of the Non-Volatile Memory group at AMD in the late 1970s. He also served in senior technical management roles at Intel and Digital Equipment Corporation before retiring in 1995.
