For vision and leadership that transformed Applied
Materials into an innovation leader and global partner for
advancing microelectronics manufacturing technology

For leadership and pioneering contributions to the
field of digital signal processing

Possessing a rare blend of technological aptitude, business
acumen and community leadership, James C. Morgan has made
a major impact on the advancement of microelectronics technology around the world. At Applied Materials, Inc., headquartered
in Santa Clara, Calif., Mr. Morgan's long-term vision - involving
significant research and development, strong support of engineering, early market penetration and globalization - guided
the company to become the world's largest manufacturer of
semiconductor equipment. Nearly every new chip produced
around the world is made using equipment manufactured by
Applied Materials. In line with Mr. Morgan's vision, Applied
Materials has made more powerful, portable and affordable
chips possible, enabled ultra-large flat panel TV screens and,
more recently, brought manufacturing scale and expertise to the
effort to reduce the cost of solar energy. Mr. Morgan joined
Applied Materials as President in 1976, and went on to serve as
Chief Executive Officer from 1977 to 2003, and as Chairman of
the Board of Directors from 1987 to 2009. He currently is
Chairman Emeritus.

A contributor of some of the earliest research concerning digital
signal processing (DSP), Ronald W. Schafer helped shape
the field and has continued to impact it throughout his career.
Dr. Schafer's contributions began in the late 1960s when he
helped develop the "complex cepstrum" for speech processing.
The methodology of "cepstral analysis" led to the one of most
important representations of speech for automatic speech recognition applications. It is also an important tool for processing
seismic data, biomedical signals and audio. Dr. Schafer played a
role in developing many of the classical concepts associated
with signal processing algorithms and digital filters, such as
multirate interpolation, short-time Fourier analysis and synthesis
and the chirp z-transform. He also explored nonlinear processing based on mathematical morphological operators, which
became an important part of image processing applications,
and led efforts concerning digital image restoration. In 1974,
Dr. Schafer joined the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta,
where he helped create the Center for Signal and Image
Processing (CSIP), one of the most prestigious academic signal
processing laboratories in the world. Under his leadership the
faculty grew from two professors to more than a dozen of the
world's leading minds in DSP. Over a 30-year academic career,
he introduced thousands of students to DSP; co-authored six
widely used textbooks, and supervised graduate research in
speech, image, biomedical and communication signal processing. An IEEE Life Fellow and a member of the National Academy
of Engineering, Dr. Schafer is currently an HP Fellow in the
Multimedia Communication and Networking Laboratory at
Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, Palo Alto, Calif.

A founding member of Semiconductor Equipment Materials
International/SEMATECH, Mr. Morgan has been instrumental in
developing industry-wide technology roadmaps that enable
companies to collaborate and develop products more efficiently. Mr. Morgan shared some of the lessons learned at Applied
Materials in his 1991 book, Cracking the Japanese Market:
Strategies for Success in the New Global Economy. Under Mr.
Morgan's leadership, Applied Materials has received numerous
awards for its drive and commitment to achieving sustainability
in a clean technology economy and for its social responsibility.
Mr. Morgan is an IEEE Honorary Member.
