The Super Bowl wasn’t the only festive event over the last few weeks! The Electronic Systems Design ecosystem honored Andrzej Strojwas as the 2016 Phil Kaufman Award recipient during an awards ceremony and dinner attended by close to 200 of us from the industry. It was held Thursday, January 26, at the Fourth Street Summit Center in San Jose, Calif.
For those of you who don’t know Dr. Strojwas, he is PDF Solutions’ chief technologist as well as the Keithley professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. He was recognized with the award for his pioneering research in the area of DFM in the semiconductor industry.
The Kaufman Award is presented annually by the ESD Alliance and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA). For more information, check out: http://bit.ly/2l95wTO
As I did with the RISC-V event, I won’t try to recapture the evening when two of our favorite chroniclers Peggy Aycinena and Paul McLellan covered the evening so masterfully and neatly depicted the mood. (See the links to their blog posts below.) Instead, I’ll offer you a look at who was there through photos taken by the Alliance’s Paul Cohen and Julie Rogers and ace photographer Ross Mehan of Ross Mehan Photography. The video, produced by Andrew Mellows Video, will be available on the ESD Alliance website shortly.
