During his tenure, he patented various inventions. He also assumed the leadership role of the VLSI Device Bureau.


In 1969, Smith and Boy co-invented the charge-coupled device, CCD. The two received the Stuart Ballantine Medal in 1973 from the Franklin Institute and the Stuart Ballantine Medal. He received the IEEE Morris N. Liebmann Memorial Award in 1974, the Charles Stark Draper Prize in 2006, and the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics. Smith and Boy are keen on sailing. The two have traveled together. After his retirement, he traveled around the world with his life partner, Janet, for seventeen years. However, after 2003, he was forced to leave his hobby due to bone fractures. He currently resides in Wardown, New Jersey.
