SERIAL PATENT LITIGATOR Rambus is waving goodbye to its founder, Dr Mark Horowitz, who will leave the firm's board and take a two year leave of absence as chief scientist.
Horowitz said that his decision to leave the board is due to personal reasons and other obligations, and that he will take his two year leave of absence from 31 December.
"I feel privileged to have worked with some of the most talented professionals in a variety of technology fields. I feel particularly proud of the many ground-breaking inventions and contributions Rambus has made to the high-bandwidth memory interface industry and am very excited about our recent work in LED lighting and cryptography," he said.
"While I will miss being involved with Rambus, it is time for me to focus on my personal obligations. I have full confidence in the Rambus management team and Board of Directors, and will be available to them as time permits for consultation."
Horowitz has been a Rambus director since 1990 and chief scientist since May 2005. µ
