Anthony George Constantinides

Jean Walrand

For educating, inspiring, and mentoring generations
of graduate students in digital signal processing and
communications throughout the world

For contributions to the theory and algorithms for highspeed switching and network resource allocation

Anthony George Constantinides pioneered the teaching of
digital signal processing in the United Kingdom and established programs at other universities around the world. In 1970
he established the Signal Processing and Communications
Research Group at Imperial College, London. Hundreds of
master's students and over 130 doctoral students were directly
supervised by Dr. Constantinides until his retirement in 2008;
many went on to become leaders in industry and academia. He
helped establish the Athens Institute of Technology and the
Technical University of Cyprus, and he developed new courses
and lecture notes for use by universities worldwide. He was
instrumental in establishing the European Association for
Signal Processing and was elected as its first president. An
IEEE Life Fellow and Fellow of the Royal Academy of
Engineering (U.K.), Dr. Constantinides is an Emeritus Professor
with Imperial College, London, U.K.

Jean Walrand's research on high-speed switching and network
resource allocation has improved performance for more efficient
and reliable communication over the Internet. During the 1990s,
Dr. Walrand developed quick simulation techniques for queuing
networks to estimate the probability of events that can have catastrophic consequences in communications networks. He also
developed virtual buffers to improve the marking of data packets
to help detect when a router is reaching its maximum capacity.
His award-winning work on high-speed switching for queued
networks initiated in 1993 investigated a method to allow
Internet routers to reach 100% efficiency, overcoming the
problem of "head of the line blocking." His contributions to
network resource allocation include the concept of virtual
bandwidth and work on fair end-to-end window-based congestion control. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Walrand is a professor with the
Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Department at
the University of California, Berkeley.

Leo Lorenz

Subramanian S. Iyer

For contributions to the development of power
semiconductor devices and integrated power modules

For the development and implementation of embedded
DRAM technologies

Leo Lorenz developed some of the most important innovations in
power electronics, spearheading the movement from conventional power conversion technology to high-frequency and
high-power methods. Working with Siemens Semiconductor in
Munich, Dr. Lorenz developed the first ultrafast switching multidie
direct copper bonded-based power metal-oxide-semiconductor
field-effect transistor (MOSFET) module in 1986, which serves as
the foundation of today's power module technology. He
pioneered the product definition and concept engineering of the
first ultrathin wafer non-punch-through (NPT) insulated gate
bipolar transistor (IGBT) in 1987 and developed the "sandwich
technology" (the basis for controlled integrated power systems)
for advanced integrated power modules, which is an important
component in home appliances and automotive applications. An
IEEE Fellow, Dr. Lorenz is currently a professor at TU-Ilmenau and
president of the European Center for Power Electronics.

Subramanian S. Iyer's pioneering development of embedded
dynamic random access memory (eDRAM) has boosted the
power of computer processors for applications ranging from
high-end servers to gaming consoles and personal electronics.
Dr. Iyer recognized the need for large amounts of high-density,
high-performance, and high-bandwidth memory placed close to
the integrated circuit to fully exploit the power of computer processors. His eDRAM technology allows for integration of very
large amounts of dense on-chip memory with significantly lower
power and higher reliability compared to conventional methods.
The on-chip memory solution has enabled more memory to be
placed on smaller chips, resulting in systems with higher performance. An IEEE Fellow and IBM Fellow, Dr. Iyer is chief
technologist with the Microelectronics Division of IBM's Systems
& Technology Group, Hopewell Junction, N.Y., responsible for
technical strategy, embedded memory, and three-dimensional
integration.
