Lucio and the Kaufman Award

Lucio and the Kaufman Award
by Paul McLellan on 11-06-2014 at 4:30 pm

Tuesday was the Kaufman award dinner. This year it was awarded to Lucio Lanza. Last week I wrote about how Lucio ended up in EDA, although that was not where he finished up. He is currently a venture capitalist running Lanza Technology Ventures, one of the few VCs to make any investments in the EDA/IP/semiconductor space. Also, unlike… Read More


Lithography: Future Technologies

Lithography: Future Technologies
by Paul McLellan on 11-27-2013 at 12:28 pm

The first part of Lars Liebmann’s ICCAD keynote about lithography was on the changes in lithography that have to us to where we are today. In some ways it was an explanation of why we have the odd design rules, double patterning etc that we have in 20nm and 16nm processes. The second part of his talk was a look forward to how we might… Read More

Kaufman Award: Chenming Hu
by Paul McLellan on 06-06-2013 at 3:44 am

This year’s Kaufman award winner is Chenming Hu. In contrast to previous years, this was presented on the Sunday evening of DAC instead of at a separate event in San Jose. Chenming’s career was reviewed by Klaus Schuegraf, Group Vice President of EUV Product Development at Cymer, Inc (now part of ASML) and also one of… Read More

Phil Kaufman Award Recipient 2013: Chenming Hu
by Paul McLellan on 04-03-2013 at 2:15 am

This year’s recipient of the Kaufman Award is Dr Chenming Hu. I can’t think of a more deserving recipient. He is the father of the FinFET transistor which is clearly the most revolutionary thing to come along in semiconductor for a long time. Of course he wasn’t working alone but he was the leader of the team at UC… Read More

ICCAD at 30: Alberto Looks Back and Forward
by Paul McLellan on 11-08-2012 at 8:10 pm

At ICCAD earlier this week, CEDA sponsored a talk by Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli looking back over the last 30 years (it is the 30th anniversary of ICCAD) and looking to the future. As is always the case in these sorts of presentations, the retrospective contained a lot more detail than the going forward part. Clayton Christensen… Read More
