Research expertise
Circuits and architectures for low power and high performance VLSI, radiation hardened circuit design and CAD for VLSI

Lawrence T. Clark worked at Intel Corporation after receiving his B.S. in computer science in 1983. While completing his Ph.D. he worked at VLSI Technology Inc. designing PC chipsets. He received his Ph.D. in 1992 after receiving his M.S. in 1987, both in electrical engineering from Arizona State University. He re-joined Intel in 1992. He joined ASU in August 2004. Clark has been awarded over 70 patents, with approximately 20 pending. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed technical papers. He has approximately 15 years of industry experience in various aspects of chipset, CMOS imager, microprocessor design, test engineering, and TCAD. Clark contributed to the Pentium, Itanium, and XScale microprocessor designs. Most recently, he was a principal engineer and circuit design manager for the Intel XScale microprocessor designs. Clark has been with SuVolta Inc. in various capacities since 2009.
