Home > Press > Hugo De Man, Computer-Aided Design Expert, to Receive IEEE Technology Award

Abstract:
The IEEE has named Hugo De Man as the recipient of its 2007 Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits, recognizing his leadership in integrated circuit design and design methodology. Prof. De Man's work has driven important changes in the computer-aided design (CAD) and electronic design automation (EDA) industries to better accommodate system complexity aspects and CMOS nano-scaling issues, creating tremendous strides in the development of nanotechnology. He has also ensured further development in this area by determining how best to educate future system architects and designers for the age of nano-electronics. The IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology.

Hugo De Man, Computer-Aided Design Expert, to Receive IEEE Technology Award

PISCATAWAY, NJ | Posted on January 29th, 2007

Sponsored by the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, the Pederson Award recognizes outstanding contributions to solid-state circuits. It will be presented to Prof. De Man at the 2007 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco, CA on 12 February 2007. Prof. De Man is professor emeritus at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U. Leuven) in Belgium, the institution from which he earned his bachelor's and doctoral degrees, and co-founder and Senior Fellow at the Interuniversity Microelectronics Center (IMEC) in Leuven. During his 40 years of work combining advanced EDA research and integrated circuit (IC) design at the edge of CMOS technology scaling, he has pioneered the high-level synthesis and hardware/software co-design of systems-on-chip (SoC). He has worked on several key aspects of solid-state circuits including: mixed analog-digital design; the development of layout and switched-capacitor filter simulation tools by co-designing such filter chips for audio systems; high-level synthesis for digital signal processor (DSP) systems resulting in the Cathedral silicon compiler suite, the first operational silicon compilers for industrial DSP chips; high-level synthesis of programmable co-processors to increase design productivity to cope with complexity issues of today's chips; hardware/software co-design; and SoC design for nanoelectronics.

Several of his research projects led to the formation of commercial businesses specializing in systems and chip design. He also founded IMEC, which is now the largest independent microelectronics research organization in Europe, with more than 1,400 employees.

De Man is an IEEE Fellow and past recipient of the IEEE Golden Jubilee Medal. He also is a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Belgium.
