2021 IEEE TECHNICAL FIELD AWARDS

IEEE Andrew S. Grove Award
Sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society

Hideaki Aochi, Ryota Katsumata,
and Masaru Kito
For pioneering and sustained contributions to high-density, threedimensional flash memory

Hideaki Aochi, Ryota Katsumata, and Masaru Kito's revolutionary BiCS concept has become the standard for realizing highdensity and fast three-dimensional (3D) flash memory to meet the
needs of the powerful personal devices of today and the future.To
overcome the scalability and complexity issues of early 3D flash
memory concepts, the team created the new three-dimensional
flash memory by punch and plug method, which features a multistacked memory array with fewer critical lithography steps and
charge-trapping cells for high-density yet cost-effective scalable
memory. Their new concept has been widely used in solid-state
drive storage systems for smart phones, PCs, and high-performance computers. With the capability for greater than a terabyte

density, the team's innovative 3D flash memory can also replace
hard disk drives, with the benefits of no moving parts, smaller
footprint, and lower power consumption.
An IEEE Senior Member, Aochi is a senior expert with the
Institute of Memory Technology Research and Development at
KIOXIA Corporation, Kanagawa, Japan.
An IEEE Senior Member, Katsumata is a deputy general manager with the Advanced Memory Development Center at KIOXIA Corporation, Mie, Japan.
An IEEE member, Kito is a group manager with the Advanced
Memory Development Center at KIOXIA Corporation, Mie,
Japan.

IEEE Masaru Ibuka Consumer Electronics Award

IEEE Richard Harold Kaufmann Award

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society

Steve Wozniak

Stephen McArthur

For pioneering the design of consumerfriendly personal computers

For innovative contributions to the
advancement of intelligent systems for
power engineering applications

As cofounder of Apple Computer and developer of the first
broadly available personal computers, the Apple I and II, Steve
Wozniak's technical contributions have touched practically every aspect of the consumer electronics market. Wozniak designed
the Apple I as a video terminal with a built-in monitor program,
which was more user friendly than other computers at that time.
Wozniak added a central processing unit, keyboard, color graphics, and a floppy disk drive in the Apple II. It also featured early
" plug-and-play " functionality.These computers were accessible to
consumers who wanted to just use the hardware and its applications without having to become experts. Wozniak also contributed to the Macintosh, which introduced elements now common
in all personal computers and many consumer devices, including
graphical user interfaces and pointing devices.
An IEEE Fellow, Wozniak is a speaker with Woz Speaks, Los
Gatos, CA, USA.

An expert in the industrial application of intelligent systems for
power and energy sectors, Stephen McArthur integrates stateof-the-art artificial intelligence research with established industry
techniques to deliver applications that enhance energy system operation, control, and management. He set the agenda for international research into multiagent systems for power applications
with seminal research papers and leads the U.K.'s EPSRC Centre
for Doctoral Training in Future Power Networks and Smart Grids.
He provided research leadership in smart grids through the U.K.'s
HubNet program and oversaw the creation and deployment of
an intelligent system for postfault analysis, in use by protection
engineers at ScottishPower Energy Networks, with diagnostic and
predictive applications used within EDF's nuclear power plants to
enhance monitoring, inspection, and lifetime extension.
An IEEE Fellow, McArthur is a Distinguished Professor with
the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.
