AnSemís Chairman is presented the prestigious Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits
AnSem's Chairman, Prof. Willy Sansen, has been presented the prestigious Donald O. Pederson Award 2011 for his leadership in analog integrated circuits design.
The IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits was established in 1987, and was then called the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Award. It was renamed in 2005. Donald O. Pederson was a co-founder of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Council, the forerunner of today's Solid-State Circuits Society, in 1966, and he was instrumental in launching the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits that same year. This award is presented every year to an individual, or a team of up to three people for outstanding contributions to solid-state circuits, as exemplified by benefit to society, enhancement to technology, and professional leadership.
In the evaluation process, the following criteria are considered: impact, timeliness, quality, societal benefit, technology enhancement and creativity associated with the contribution, as well as the leadership and professional contributions of individuals identified with this achievement, and the quality of the nomination.
"AnSem congratulates Prof. Sansen for receiving the Pederson award", said Stefan Gogaert, CEO of AnSem. "It is one more recognition of Prof. Sansen's outstanding contribution to analog integrated circuits design worldwide throughout his all career. Also at the foundation of AnSem, he played a crucial motivating and inspiring role for Jan Crols and myself. We are very proud and delighted to have Prof. Sansen serve as Chairman of our Board of Directors".
