Meet Pat Pistilli, Phil Kaufman Award Recipient

Friday, November 12th, 2010

Pat Pistilli is a name long associated with the Electronic Design Automation industry.  In fact, Pat was instrumental in creating the EDA profession and building the Design Automation Conference as its premier showcase and networking platform.  It’s fitting, then, that he should be this year’s recipient of the Phil Kaufman Award, presented annually by the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).

To get a better sense of Pat and his accomplishments, click on any one of the profiles on Pat below.  Each writer found a slightly different angle and unearthed a new and compelling story told by Pat Pistilli in his own indomitable way. 

Sit back and prepare to be entertained!

Pat Pistilli: Strength and Honor

If you haven’t met Pat Pistill, a resident of Boulder, Colo., make it a point to be at the 48th Design Automation Conference June 5-10, 2011 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.  He will be there, as he always is, along with his wife, Marie. 

You may wonder about the Phil Kaufman Award, presented annually since 1994, to honor individuals who have had a demonstrable impact on the field of EDA.  It was established as a tribute to EDA industry pioneer Phil Kaufman, who turned innovative technologies, such as silicon compilation and emulation into businesses that have benefited electronic designers.  Phil Kaufman died unexpectedly July 17, 1992, on a business trip in Japan after more than 25 years in the computer industry.  At the time, he was CEO of Quickturn Systems, now part of Cadence Design Systems.  In addition, he was chairman and president of Silicon Compiler Systems where he was instrumental in advancing the concept of silicon compilation.
