The Semiconductor Research Corporation presented its 1999 Technical Excellence Award to Professor Larry Pileggi at TECHON 2000 this month. Pileggi was honored for his work in the area of Simplified Inductance and Capacitance Extraction Algorithms. This work is a major contribution to the important extraction area, both building on past work and making breakthroughs for the future.
Pileggi also shared the Technical Excellence Award in 1991, the year it was established, with his thesis advisor at Carnegie Mellon, Professor Ron Rohrer. The two were recognized for their Asymptotic Waveform Estimator (AWE).
