Robert H. Dennard — HoF: For making two of the most revolutionary contributions to the semiconductor industry

  • Development of the DRAM in 1966
  • Codifying how, "Transistor shrinks result in proportional power and/or performance gains" in 1974
    • This was the Power and Performance part of the PPAC equation that is often bundled into discussions of Moore's Law
    • Today, Dennard's Law lives on in spirit, as Performance and Power gains-per-node are still important, though they have come from Materials-Enabled Scaling* since <100nm
