This year’s 2015 Phil Kaufman Award Presentation and Dinner will be an exceptionally gala event. You are cordially invited to attend to help our industry honor Dr. Walden (Wally) C. Rhines, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Mentor Graphics Corporation, and celebrate all his accomplishments.
The evening, hosted by the EDA Consortium (EDAC) and the IEEE Council on EDA (CEDA), will be held Thursday, November 12, at the 4th Street Summit Center in San Jose, Calif. The reception will begin at 6:30 p.m., with the dinner and presentation commencing at 7:30 p.m.
While the selection committee received numerous nominations for well-deserving individuals, I was told that Wally Rhines’ nomination stood out. As it should. He is well known and respected throughout the EDA, IP and Semiconductor industry and is being recognized for growing the EDA and IC design industries through his efforts as a leading voice of EDA. Likewise, he is known for pioneering the evolution of IC design to SoC design.
