Norman P. Jouppi is an HP Senior Fellow, with a research focus on
building next-generation hardware and software compute infrastructure using
a cross-layer inter-disciplinary approach.
Norm is well known for his innovations in computer memory systems,
including stream prefetch buffers, victim caching, multi-level exclusive
caching, and development of the CACTI tool for modeling
cache and memory timing, power, and area. His research innovations have
been adopted in microprocessors from most high-performance microprocessor
His recent work in computer systems includes applications of
non-volatile memory technologies, implications of emerging nanophotonic
technology, and SOC-based servers. He has been the principal architect and
lead designer of several microprocessors, contributed to the architecture
and design of graphics accelerators, and extensively researched video,
audio, and physical telepresence.
Norm is currently serving on the board of ACM SIGARCH and is an
ACM representative on the board of the Computing
Research Association. He serves on the editorial boards of the
Communications of the ACM and IEEE Micro. He holds more than 60 patents,
including one designated a Compaq Key Patent. Norm has published over 100
technical papers, with several best paper awards and two ISCA Influential
Paper Awards. He is a Fellow of the ACM and IEEE.
