Rambus has turned to one of its two founders to point the company in the right technological direction.

The memory technology developer yesterday announced that it had appointed co-founder Mark Horowitz as its chief scientist, reporting directly to CEO Harold Hughes.

The appointment appears to formalise a broader technology steering role Horowitz has taken as a Rambus board member since the company's formation, in 1990.

Horowitz is currently a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as Stanford University, where he has been teaching since 1984. After a four-year stint as a company VP, from 1990 to 1994, Horowitz has focused on his academic roles.

As chief scientist, Horowitz will be responsible for assembling teams to evaluate trends and look for opportunities to apply Rambus' high-speed signalling expertise to various markets, the company said. He will take "an active leadership role" in determining Rambus' future technological development and direction, it added. ®
