IEEE Awards 2010

Takayasu Sakurai, has got the 2010 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits, for pioneering contributions to the design and modeling of high-speed and low-power CMOS logic circuits.

Note that this is not compact modeling, but his alpha power law model has had a big impact!

Gennady Gildenblat has got promoted to IEEE Fellow for his "contributions to modeling of metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors".

Yasuhisa Omura has got promoted to IEEE Fellow for the contributions made to the SOI technology, analysis and modelling.

Thomas Piotr Skotnicki also got the promotion to IEEE Fellow for contributing to the development of MOS models.

Congratulations to all of them!
