For lifetime achievements within IEEE technical fields of interest in the development
of processes of electrometallurgy, materials
science, electric welding of metals, and
biological tissues

For innovations in the design of high-performance and
energy-efficient custom silicon for mobile applications

With countless pioneering achievements in electrometallurgy
and materials science, Borys Paton has developed electric welding
technologies that are widely used for performing complex operations in space, under water, and in other critical environments
including medicine/surgery. His fundamental research into the
interaction of welding heat sources with molten metal laid the
foundation for a new avenue of metallurgy called special electrometallurgy, which has made possible the casting of super clean
special steels and alloys, nonferrous metals, and unique composites. This work has opened prospects for creating advanced structural and functional materials for the 21st Century. Paton was
among the first engineers to develop welding processes for space
technologies, which were used by cosmonauts first in orbital
flights and then in open outer space. He helped develop several
devices for welding in space, including the Vulcan (1969), Zarnitsa (1974), and the Isparitel (1979). Paton led the development
of electroslag welding in the early 1950s.This progressive method
of joining metals has made it possible to fundamentally change
the production and installation of large machines and structures,
allowing the welding parts of practically unlimited thickness to
the assembly site without subsequent machining. Paton has also
applied advances in electric welding to medicine, providing a
new direction in surgery with tissue-preserving welding and processing of live tissues. Now widely used in practical surgery for
over 15 years, this method allows for a quick and almost bloodless
cutting and joining of biological tissues.Wound healing after such
operations is much quicker compared to conventional surgery,
the duration of surgical procedures is considerably shorter, there
is less hemorrhaging, and the postoperative rehabilitation of patients is quicker. The results demonstrated by Paton have spurred
further development in this important technology for healthcare.
Recipient of the Hobart Memorial Medal from the American
Welding Society (1983), Paton is president and academician of
the National Academy of Science of Ukraine and director of its
E.O. Paton Institute of Electric Welding, Kyiv, Ukraine.

Apple's focus on creating custom silicon technologies has enabled
innovations producing energy-efficient yet increasingly powerful
mobile devices featuring simple and seamless human-friendly interfaces and unprecedented mobility, connectivity, and computing
capabilities. The innovations in chip designs achieved by Apple's
Hardware Technologies (HWT) team are the foundation of Apple's
highly impactful product line featuring the iPhone, iPad, AirPods,
Apple Watch, iPod, and Apple TV.These products have profoundly
transformed the music, digital media, computing, and communications industries and are leading the smartphone, tablet, and smartwatch segments in functionality, performance, and energy efficiency. Historically, most mobile phone handset system manufacturers
have relied on merchant silicon to embed within their phones,
even if they developed their own system designs. In contrast, Apple
took a bold approach to assemble a design team to create its own
in-house custom application processors optimized for the customer experience. The breakthrough custom silicon technologies
designed by the HWT team include a family of application processors, power management ICs, storage controllers, wireless communications, and sensors.Apple's quest for energy-efficient computing
while attaining higher levels of performance and functionality, including privacy-preserving on-device artificial intelligence capabilities, is observable in Apple's application processors ranging from
the single-core A4 (2010) to the six-core A12 Bionic processor
(2018). Over that time frame the computing performance of these
processors increased about 37-fold while also enhancing energy
efficiency. Apple launched the Secure Enclave for higher levels of
security in mobile devices, such as Touch ID and Face ID, and
also introduced its Neural Engine for on-device machine learning.
Apple's HWT team also pioneered the system-in-package S-series
to support the stringent requirements on functionality, connectivity, and battery life in the Apple Watch. The HWT team also
delivered design innovations in systems-on-chip for Bluetooth and
WiFi connectivity (known as the W and H series), which are key
enabling components in the Apple Watch and AirPods.
Apple's Hardware Technologies group is led by Senior Vice
President Johny Srouji. With over 100,000 employees worldwide,
Apple's headquarters are located in Cupertino, CA, USA.

Scope: For those who have rendered meritorious service to
humanity in the IEEE's designated fields of interest and who are
not members of the IEEE.

Scope: For an outstanding innovation by an organization in an
IEEE field of interest.
