Samuel H. (Sam) Fuller, III,
an American electrical engineer, computer scientist and distinguished research scientist and CTO emeritus, former vice president, research and development, at Analog Devices, Inc., and before, from 1978 until 1998, vice president of research, and chief scientist at Digital Equipment Corporation.
Sam Fuller received his Ph.D. in electical engineering from Stanford University in 1972 under advisor Edward McCluskey, and was associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University in the 70s, where he was involved in the design and performance evaluation of several experimental multiprocessor computer systems, and co-authored along with John Gaschnig and James Gillogly an analysis of alpha-beta .
