Nominations opened for the Phil Kaufman Hall of Fame for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic System Design sponsored by the Electronic System Design Alliance (ESD Alliance) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).

The honor posthumously recognizes individuals who made significant and noteworthy contributions through creativity, entrepreneurism and innovation to the electronic system design industry and were not recipients of the Phil Kaufman Award. Deceased members of the community are not eligible to receive the Phil Kaufman Award, a policy set by the IEEE.

Selections for the Hall of Fame are determined through a nomination process. Nominations are reviewed by the ESD Alliance and IEEE CEDA Kaufman Award selection committees. A special Phil Kaufman Hall of Fame page on the ESD Alliance and IEEE CEDA websites will host photos, citations and tributes to the selected inductees.

The nomination period runs through Friday, April 29, and inductees will be announced in June. The link to the nomination form can be found here. Nominations submitted in 2021 will be valid through 2023.

Inaugural honorees awarded in 2021 were Jim Hogan, executive, angel investor and board member, and Stanford University Professor Edward J. McCluskey, acknowledged for their significant and noteworthy contributions to the electronic system design industry.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Mark Thompson

05/12/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I-Connect007 Columnist Mark Thompson of Out of the Box Manufacturing has been in CAM engineering for decades, and he’s also worked as a PCB designer, so we knew he would have a few things to say about working in a vacuum. As he explains, the designer isn’t the only stakeholder in the process who feels like he’s working inside the dust bag of a Hoover upright.
