IEEE Names Six Fellows From Within Council on EDA Ranks

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Dec 19, 2011 -- The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) today announced that six candidates from the Council have been appointed Fellow of the IEEE effective January 1, 2012.

Those elevated to the Class of 2012 IEEE Fellow from CEDA are: Naehyuck Chang from Seoul National University for contributions to system-level power characterization, including thermal management; Chong-Nuen Chu of Iowa State University for contributions to physical design of integrated circuits; and Alper Demir at Koc University in Turkey for contributions to stochastic modeling and phase noise analysis.

Also, Rudy Lauwereins from IMEC for contributions to data flow models in real-time prototyping; Luis Silveira from the Technical University of Lisbon for contributions to analysis and modeling of VLSI interconnects; and Stephen Trimberger of Xilinx, Inc. for contributions to circuits, architectures and software technology for field-programmable gate arrays.

"We are proud to recognize all six and congratulate them on their achievement," says Professor Donatella Sciuto of Politecnico di Milano and president-elect of CEDA. "All have contributed to the advancement of design automation and we can all be quite proud of their efforts."

IEEE Fellow, conferred by the IEEE board of directors, is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members who have made extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields. It is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.

About the IEEE Council on EDA
The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) provides a focal point for EDA activities spread across six IEEE societies (Antennas and Propagation; Circuits and Systems; Computer; Electron Devices; Microwave Theory and Techniques; and Solid State Circuits). It sponsors more than 12 conferences, including the Design Automation Conference (DAC), International Conference in CAD (ICCAD) and Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE). CEDA publishes IEEE Transactions on CAD and the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters. CEDA is increasingly involved in recognizing its leaders via the A. Richard Newton Award, Early Career Award and Phil Kaufmann Award. CEDA welcomes volunteers and local chapters. For more information, go to:
