Intel researcher leads Oregon's prolific patents
Even at a company that prides itself on innovation, Intel researcher Robert Chau occupies a special place.
The Hillsboro engineer received his 200th patent this year -- 40 more than anyone else at Intel -- and has 67 more pending.
"I never really keep track of the numbers, quite frankly, because this is really part of the job," he said.
Robert Chau values each of the patents hes accumulated in his two decades at Intel, now 200 and counting, though he acknowledges he's a little fuzzy on the details of the first. Today, he concentrates his efforts on nanotechnology the tiniest components in Intel's chips.
