2020 IEEE VIC SUMMIT AND HONORS CEREMONY
In place of the IEEE Vision Innovation Challenge (VIC) Summit and Honors Ceremony, starting on May 15, a series of specialized online promotions will showcase each recipient's contributions and their role in advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.
The IEEE Medals and Recognitions are the highest awards given by IEEE for advances in technology. Chenming Hu is this year's IEEE Medal of Honor recipient. He is being honored for his achievements in developing and putting into practice semiconductor models, particularly 3D device structures, that have helped keep Moore's Law going over many decades. Hu has been called the Father of the 3D Transistor due to his development of the Fin Field Effect Transistor in 1999. Intel, the first company to implement FinFETs in its products, called the invention the most radical shift in semiconductor technology in more than 50 years. Please visit ieee-vics.org for details.
