Catch NVIDIA’s Chris Malachowsky Presentation on “Watts Next” During ICCAD

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Chris Malachowsky, renowned NVIDIA fellow and senior vice president of research, will regale ICCAD attendees with a talk on “Watts Next …” during a noontime luncheon hosted by CEDA November 8 at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, Calif.

We’re delighted Chris accepted our invitation. He’s promised to explain why it is essential to make the most economical and efficient use of power. We’ll learn how power efficiency applies across NVIDIA’s broad range of processor offerings from supercomputers to cell phones.

As many of you know, Chris co-founded NVIDIA in 1993 and is currently responsible for NVIDIA’s research organization chartered with developing strategic technologies that will help drive the company’s future growth and success. He has been instrumental in managing, defining and driving NVIDIA’s core technologies as it has grown from a startup to the global leader in visual and parallel computing. As an executive at NVIDIA, his roles have been diverse, heading numerous functions, including IT, operations, and all facets of its product engineering.

Previously, Chris held engineering and technical leadership positions at HP and Sun Microsystems. He is a recognized authority on integrated-circuit design and methodology, and has authored close to 40 patents. Chris holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Florida and a Master of Science degree in Computer Science degree from Santa Clara University. Both schools have honored him with Distinguished Alumnus awards.

I look forward to seeing you at Chris’ talk. It is open to all full ICCAD conference and Tuesday conference-only registrants.

You’re Invited to the Phil Kaufman Award Dinner November 8

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Please join CEDA and the EDA Consortium for the Phil Kaufman Award Dinner honoring Dr. C. L. David Liu, the William Mong honorary chair professor of Computer Science and former president of the National Tsing Hua University in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The dinner will be held Tuesday, November 8, at the Double Tree Hotel in San Jose, Calif.

Dr. Liu, a well-respected figure in our industry, is a distinguished engineer and educator, as well as an astute business leader. His fundamental and seminal work transformed ad hoc EDA to algorithmic EDA. His contributions have been incorporated in various tools that have impacted numerous market segments. Many of Dr. Liu’s students, influenced by his passion for EDA, have made their own impressive marks in our field.

The annual Phil Kaufman Award honors individuals who have made an impact on the field of EDA and posthumously named for Phil Kaufman, an industry pioneer who turned innovative technologies into commercial businesses that have benefited electronic designers. Last year’s recipient, Pasquale (Pat) O. Pistilli, chairman of MP Associates of Louisville, Colo., pioneered the EDA industry and built DAC as its premiere showcase and networking platform.
