Delvin Eberlein earned an M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1970. He served as vice president of Technology for Cray Research in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, overseeing all aspects of integrated circuit fabrication and packaging for custom and semi-custom logic circuits that were used in Cray product lines. Elberlein held nine U.S. patents and was considered an expert in his field. Cray Research produced state-of-the-art supercomputers primarily for research and weather forecasting. The Cray 16 Gate Array circuit created by Eberlein was the cornerstone for two large Cray Computer systems. During his tenure, he supervised the design and construction of two clean-room facilities and expanded the circuit fabrication department from three employees to 65. His wife Athene Uhlir Eberlein attended South Dakota State College.
