The nomination deadline for the Phil Kaufman Hall of Fame for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic System Design has been extended to Friday, May 27, the Electronic System Design Alliance (ESD Alliance) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA), sponsors of the honor, announced.
The honor posthumously recognizes individuals who made significant contributions to the 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.
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.
Selections for entry are determined through a nomination process and 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.
Inductees will be announced in June. The link to the nomination form can be found on SEMI’s website. Nominations submitted in 2021 will be valid through 2023.
