Dr. Andrjez Strojwas, Keithley Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, is the recipient of the 2016 Phil Kaufman Award. The award will be presented at a dinner honoring Dr. Strojwas on January 26, 2017, in San José, CA.
Dr. Stojwas has significantly advanced the art and science of IC design for manufacturability. Both academic and entrepreneur, Andrjez has excelled at both. Academically, he developed a number of CAD tools that addressed the statistical variations in the processing of integrated circuits and provided metrics to optimize the process and layouts to improve yield. He has also been an entrepreneur, bringing those metrics and methods to industry, where his techniques are used by nearly all advanced IC fabrication facilities. His efforts have helped the IC design and manufacturing industries cost effectively deliver the complex products we enjoy today.
Additional information on Dr. Strojwas' contributions is included in the full press release.
The ESD-Alliance and IEEE Council on EDA will honor Dr. Strojwas at an award presentation and dinner at 6:30 PM on January 26, 2017, at the 4th Street Summit in San José.
