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.
