Deborah Estrin

Erling Hesla

For formative contributions and thought
leadership in Internet routing and in
mobile sensing techniques and applications, from environmental monitoring to
personal and community health

For leadership in establishing the fundamentals for the protection and safe
operation of industrial power systems

Deborah Estrin's innovative ideas and leadership have combined
to realize powerful new ways of adapting the Internet to applications of great importance to modern society. Estrin helped design
the replacement of the Internet's original global routing protocol
and also championed multicast protocols, which support aggregate communication among a collection of hosts compared to
traditional point-to-point communication. She was the founding
director of the National Science Foundation's Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS), which pioneered the development of mobile and wireless systems to collect and analyze realtime data about the physical world and the people who occupy it.
She then applied this participatory sensing technology to improving health outcomes as the undisputed thought leader in mobile
health (mHealth) applications.
An IEEE Fellow, Estrin is a professor of computer science at
Cornell Tech, New York, NY, USA.

With a career dedicated to developing practical approaches to
improving electrical safety, Erling Hesla has championed the safe
switching and clearing of power systems through critical contributions and by educating engineers. He developed the first
software-driven analytical approach to the planning and control
of lockout/tagout analysis for qualified operators to confidently
perform the switching and clearing of complex power distribution systems. Hesla led the creation of IEEE Standard 902-1988
(Guide for Maintenance, Operation and Safety of Industrial and
Commercial Power Systems), which was the first IEEE standard
to provide guidance for safe workplace practices regarding industrial electrical systems. Considered the accepted expert in applying safe switching procedures, Hesla has also disseminated his
safety knowledge to engineers worldwide through his consulting
practice, many publications, and numerous lectures.
An IEEE Life Senior Member, Hesla is owner of Hesla & Associates, Camano Island, WA, USA.

IEEE Joseph F. Keithley Award in Instrumentation and
Measurement

IEEE Gustaff Robert Kirchhoff Award
Sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society

Sponsored by Keithley Instruments, a Tektronix company, and the
IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society

Jerome Blair

Marcel J.M. Pelgrom

For contributions to test procedures for
analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog
converters and to enhanced-accuracy
gamma-ray spectrometry.

For seminal contributions to systematic
analysis of random offsets in semiconductor devices and their impact on
circuits

The innovations developed by Jerome Blair concerning analog and
digital converters and waveform recorders have improved efficiency of
equipment and benefited national security efforts. His sine wave histogram tests provided a new way to thoroughly test analog-to-digital
converters for integral and differential nonlinearity and missing codes
using significantly less data than previous methods. His improvements
enabled much shorter test times and relaxed the requirements on test
equipment. Blair patented an algorithm to quantify gamma-ray radial
energy deposition in conventional semiconductor detectors, to aid the
detection of contraband nuclear materials. His work has enabled size
and weight reduction of portable detection systems and increased sensitivity of fixed stations monitoring traffic by eliminating background
radiation coming from directions other than a particular vehicle.
An IEEE Fellow, Blair is a chief scientist with Keystone International, Inc., Albuquerque, NM, USA.

Known to circuit designers around the world for his formulation of
the random variation (mismatch) behavior between two otherwise
identical components, Marcel J.M. Pelgrom has dramatically impacted the efficiency of analog designers. An essential performance
metric for optimization, the "Pelgrom model" provides the device
and design community with an elegant description for mismatch.
Mismatch characterization is important because statistical variations
between individual devices critically affect the performance of analog circuits. Due to device scaling and power supply reduction, the
impact of local variability increases to a level where even full-swing
noise margins in digital memories are affected. Pelgrom's model will
remain instrumental in achieving optimized solutions in many types
of semiconductor devices, creating lasting economic benefits.
An IEEE Member, Pelgrom is a consultant with Pelgrom Consult, Helmond, the Netherlands.
