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.

Choosing the right material for your application can be a major challenge. These are “cost to performance” decisions that need to be made to select material that will meet the expected performance requirements and the desired cost targets. Selecting a material that meets cost targets but fails to perform in prototype development testing results in costly revision spins, cost increases and delays to market. Chapter 1 of this book helps readers understand what resin choices to make for optimal electrical performance.

In Chapter 2 of this book, the subject involves the challenges in the design and development of data center systems. With the exponential growth in data center infrastructure for IT networking, numerous challenges have emerged, from limited ecosystems to high-performance computing issues. There are many constraints to building data centers and updating the equipment in them. Planning is critical in managing increased capacity in the existing data center space.
