Christofer toumazou

Hiroshi iwai

For outstanding contributions to
biomedical circuit technology

For contributions to the scaling of
CMOS devices

A visionary leader in the field of biomedical circuits and systems,
Christofer Toumazou's groundbreaking contributions to the design, implementation, and clinical application of integrated microchip technology solutions for intelligent diagnostics and therapy
have transformed medical practice. In 2001, Dr. Toumazou developed semiconductor genomic sequencing. Other achievements
include cochlear implants for children born deaf, an artificial pancreas for type 1 diabetics, wireless heart monitors for personalized
ambulatory care, semiconductor-based DNA sequencing, and an
intelligent neural stimulator as a drug alternative for obesity. In
1994, Dr. Toumazou became the youngest professor to be appointed at Imperial College London.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Toumazou is founder and chief scientist
of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Imperial College
London, and founder of three successful healthcare companies
(Toumaz, DNA Electronics, and GENEU).

Hiroshi Iwai's dedication to pushing the boundaries of integrated circuit scaling broke perceived barriers to enable the continued miniaturization of electronic devices providing higher performance with lower power that are integral to today's mobile
electronics. When industry forecasted that complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) scaling wouldn't go below 1
micrometer due to current leakage and lithography issues, Prof.
Iwai provided solutions demonstrating that 25-nanometer (nm)
scaling was possible. Among his many innovations, he developed
technologies for shallow junctions and optical lithography to allow fabrication of 40-nm gate-length CMOS transistors. He also
devised techniques for growing ultra-thin silicon oxide films to
overcome leakage issues when using extremely small gate lengths.
Overall, Prof. Iwai's contributions demonstrated to industry that
sub-50-nm CMOS scaling could be achieved.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Prof. Iwai is a professor with the Tokyo
Institute of Technology,Yokohama, Kangawa, Japan.

nasser Bozorg-grayeli

Bruce a. Francis

For contributions to the advancement
of microelectronic packaging technology, manufacturing, and semiconductor
ecosystems

For pioneering contributions to H-infinity,
linear-multivariable, and digital control

One of the most influential people in the electronics board and
substrate industry, Nasser Bozorg-Grayeli's contributions have
been integral to driving down component package size while
incorporating more features and functionalities, enabling thinner and lighter devices. Among his many accomplishments, Dr.
Bozorg-Grayeli developed Intel's first 6-inch wafer gold bumping
and advance tape automated bonding packaging and manufacturing technology, which was an order of magnitude thinner than
existing microprocessor packages. He led the industry's transition
of high-density packaging from ceramics to organics to reduce
cost and continuously improve performance of products. He also
was a champion of removing hazardous materials from packaging
materials, making Intel the first company to eliminate lead in all
its products.
Dr. Bozorg-Grayeli is vice president of technology and manufacturing and director of the Corporate Quality Network with
Intel Corporation, Tempe, AZ, USA.

A giant in the control systems field, Bruce A. Francis helped grow
and popularize the concept of H-infinity optimal control, which
is perhaps the most important development in control theory of
the past 30 years. His work on the internal model principle has
provided one of the most fundamental results in linear-multivariable control and has become an indispensable principle for design
of today's control systems. Prof. Francis also pioneered the development of robust control for sampled-data systems, which has
important implications in signal processing for connecting digital
systems with analog systems. Many of the most widely used computer-aided control system design tools are based on Prof. Francis'
contributions, impacting industries such as aerospace, automotive,
manufacturing, robotics, and chemical processing.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Francis is an Emeritus Professor with
the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
