Professor Diana Marculescu has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Marie R. Pistilli Women in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Achievement Award. The award honors Dr. Marculescu for her leadership and for providing a role model to women in engineering through both her research and her teaching. Her notable research highlights include design techniques to address soft error robustness in large digital circuits, process variation-aware design of multiprocessor systems-on-chip, and advanced power management techniques in the context of voltage frequency islands (VFIs) and 3D integration design styles.
The award, named for the Design Automation Conference’s (DAC) former organizer Marie Pistilli, is presented annually to an individual who has helped advance women in the EDA industry. It will be presented to Dr. Marculescu during the 51st DAC General Session on Monday, June 2, at 9:00 a.m. in Ballroom 102 of the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
