DescriptionDov Frohman, PhD, is an Israeli engineer and business executive who invented the EPROM while he was an engineer at Intel Corporation. Born in Amsterdam, he migrated first to Israel (1949) and then to the United States to get his Master's Degree and PhD at the University of California at Berkeley. Prior to Intel, Frohman worked at Fairchild Semiconductor in their R&D laboratory. In the very early 1970's he lived and taught at the University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana.
Dr. Frohman then returned to Intel where he convinced the company's leadership team (Moore, Noyce and Grove) to open first a design center and then a wafer fab in Israel. He was the first General Manager of Intel Israel and is widely credited with playing a very key role in the development of Israel's thriving technology industry.
