Hi Len:

Yes, Lynn Conway is the obvious candidate. The Mead and Conway book truly revolutionised VLSI design.

I should declare an interest - I worked with Lynn for about a year, but this was in the mid-60s when she did pioneering work on high performance computer architecture, long before she joined Xerox Parc and did her work on VLSI design.

Cheers

Brian

George,

I should have thought of the obvious candidate when we chatted over coffee yesterday:
Lynn Conway, who made significant contributions to methods for IC design

Hello to all. My first posting.

Our museum is opening on June 1st a major exhibit on women in computing.

Question:
Does anyone know of any personal computer hardware women engineers in the 1975-1985 era (+/-) who we should consider including in the exhibit? For example, women members of the Homebrew Club and/or employees at, for example - Apple, HP, Atari, Commodore, Tandy, Intel, TI, IBM, Xerox, etc. - who were hardware engineers and involved in the design of computer hardware components including microchips.

The key term is hardware.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and possible help with the above!

Best,
George
