SanDisk Corporation
For pioneering innovation, development,
and deployment of Flash Memory
Technology, which has profoundly
changed the world

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a Fortune 500 and S&P
500 company, is a global leader in flash storage solutions whose innovations have transformed the consumer electronics market for more
than a quarter-century. Founded by three engineers in Silicon Valley
more than 26 years ago, SanDisk is a flash storage pioneer that has remained deeply committed to engineering and innovation. SanDisk's
portfolio of more than 5,000 patents includes flash storage innovations that have enabled new markets and devices-from digital photography to USB drives to smartphones, tablets, and thin-and-light
notebooks. Increasingly, SanDisk is also focused on transforming the
data center.
The SanDisk IP portfolio includes pivotal patents in flash memory device and design, process technology, packaging, test, applications,
and system-level technologies. SanDisk's patented advancements also
enabled the company to introduce the industry's first multi-level cell
(MLC) flash technologies using two bits (X2) and three bits (X3)
per cell. These innovations have helped drive the wide adoption
and proliferation of flash memory. They have also helped SanDisk
to chronicle numerous impactful "firsts" throughout its history. In
2015 alone, the company introduced the world's highest-capacity
microSD™ UHS-I card and a break-through all-flash storage system
for the data center that can offer up to a half of petabyte of storage. It also announced the successful development of the world's first
48-layer second-generation 3D NAND (developed through joint
ventures with Toshiba).
Today, SanDisk continues to expand the possibilities of storage.
SanDisk's quality, state-of-the-art solutions are at the heart of many of
the world's largest data centers and are embedded in advanced smartphones, tablets, and PCs. SanDisk's consumer products are available at
hundreds of thousands of retail stores worldwide.
With headquarters based in Milpitas, CA, USA, and offices located around the world, SanDisk is led by Sanjay Mehrotra, who
co-founded the company in 1988 and currently serves as president
and chief executive officer.
SanDisk is a trademark of SanDisk Corporation, registered in the
United States and other countries.

Scope: For an outstanding and exemplary innovation by an industrial entity, governmental or academic organization, or other
corporate body, within the fields of interest to IEEE

Daktari's mission is to address the world's biggest health problems
by distributing a global fleet of portable diagnostic instruments,
deployable anywhere in the world. Daktari's patented technology
combines microfluidic sample preparation and electrochemical
sensing. Through microfluidic immunochromatography, we capture viruses like HIV and hepatitis C, bacteria, or specific blood
cells, starting from a single finger-stick drop of blood. Novel impedometric and voltammetric measurement techniques enable
detection with exquisite sensitivity-laboratory power in a handheld device. Daktari's point-of-care infectious disease diagnostics
can go anywhere, from a retail pharmacy in New York City, to a
rural clinic in central Africa.

IEEE Spectrum Emerging Technology Award

O3b's next-generation IP trunking solution boosts satellite link
capacities to rival the throughput and latency of fiber with the
reach of satellite. The O3b constellation of high throughput
satellites orbit closer to Earth than conventional geostationary
satellites, dramatically reducing delay, increasing data rates, and
improving voice and video quality for the user. O3b's satellites
orbit at 8,062 km, which is medium Earth orbit. From this altitude latency is slashed to 150 msec, equivalent to long-haul fiber
transmission. Using multiple spot beams, O3b's constellation significantly increases each satellite's capacity and decreases the cost
of bandwidth for remote or emerging markets.
