Note: Implementations in 70's done as single designer; implementations in 80's done as a combination of project co-leader and single designer; implementations in 90's done as project leader; implementations in 2000's done as project leader and/or consultant. Major implementations include:
IMP: 2-microprocessor SISD for data transmission over leased lines (70's; volume production in 80's).
IMP: 17-microprocessor MISD for DFT in HF data transmission (70's; volume production in 80's and 90's).
RCA: GaAs RISC (80's; industrial experiment).
NCR: Vertical Migration CPU (80's; industrial experiment).
ENCORE: DSM for PC (90's; industrial experiment).
