He has identified the inputs and basic components of his revolutionary Intel 4004 microprocessor of 1971. Marcian Hoff (b. 1937) had already patented two devices by the time he graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. After receiving a PhD from Stanford on a National Science Foundation grant, he became the twelfth employee of Intel Corporation (1968). While he was not the sole inventor of the microprocessor, his proposal for a "universal processor," and his subsequent leadership on development of Intel's 4004, make him one of the leading figures in the microcomputer revolution. Intel even featured him in an ad as a "rock star" of information technology. From 1985 to 1988, he was First Intel Fellow, the company's highest technical rank. He also worked for Atari and other pioneers of the computer revolution. His many honors include membership in the Inventors Hall of Fame, and the National Medal of Technology awarded by President Obama in 2009. Stamp affixed at verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
