Cadence Low Power Guru Wins Si2’s Distinguished Service Award

Comments(0)Filed under: low-power, low power, UPF, CPF, CPF 2.0, Common Power Format, LPC, Si2, OpenLPM, low-power design, IEEE 1801, Qi Wang

At the Si2 Conference held this week at Santa Clara, it was particularly pleasing to see Cadence's Qi Wang honored with a Distinguished Service Award. As stated in Si2's announcement:

"The Distinguished Service Award to Qi Wang is based on his many years of successfully guiding the Low Power Coalition Format Working Group through the release of the Common Power Format (CPF) 1.0, CPF 1.1, and CPF 2.0."

The announcement continues:

"As an example of Qi's leadership, under his guidance the format working group has developed two Interoperability Guides to explain to the industry how to work with both CPF and 1801-2009."

As attendees of the recent IEEE-1801 committee's face-to-face meeting in Cambridge can testify, Qi's enthusiasm and leadership are now extending beyond the confines of Si2's Low Power Coalition. Aided by Si2's contribution of CPF to IEEE, he's now addressing interoperability, or more to the point, methodology convergence, directly with IEEE-1801.

It would be remiss of me not to also acknowledge the work of the other Si2 Distinguished Award Winner, David Hathaway of IBM. David's great work has led to great progress with power closure flows and power modeling.

Congratulations to Qi and David!

Pete Hardee
