Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Computer Science Subhasish Mitra is the recipient of the A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award for 2014 for his 2002 paper entitled, “X-Compact: An Efficient Response Compaction Technique for Test Cost Reduction.”
The Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation is jointly sponsored by the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Design Automation. It honors an outstanding technical contribution within the scope of electronic design automation, as evidenced by a paper published at least 10 years before the presentation of the award.
The award honors A. Richard Newton, a luminary in the design automation area in academia and industry, faculty contributor and adviser to many of the leaders in the field, company founder, and dean of engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, who died in 2007. Professor Newton embodied the idea of technical impact which this award seeks to recognize.
