Professor Behzad Razavi Elected to Receive 2012 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award
IEEE has bestowed upon Prof. Behzad Razavi one of its most prestigious technical field awards, the 2012 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits for his pioneering contributions to the design of high speed and high frequency CMOS communication circuits. Prof. Razavi's research has played an instrumental role in the development of today's wireline and wireless CMOS circuits, for example, those used in high-speed optical communication systems.
As part of IEEE's mission in advancing technology for humanity, the society for nearly a century now has been acknowledging technical professionals who have contributed exceptional achievements that have made a lasting positive effect on society and in the engineering world. Prior to Professor Razavi, Professor Asad Abidi of UCLA was the recipient of the 2008 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award.
