He received his BS and MS in electrical engineering from MIT in 1978 and he completed his Ph.D in electrical engineering in Stanford University under the direction of Prof. Robert Dutton in 1984. Since then, he has been a professor at Stanford. In 1990, he took a leave of absence to co-found Rambus.
Awards and honors
In 2006, Prof. Mark Horowitz received in the IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits (before called the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Award), "For pioneering contributions to the design of high-performance digital integrated circuits and systems". In 2007, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for his "leadership in high-bandwidth memory-interface technology and in scalable cache-coherent multiprocessor architectures."
