ECE professor Kaustav Banerjee has been named co-recipient of the 2015 IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award with Professor Vivek Subramanian of UC Berkeley

The Kiyo Tomiyasu Award is a Technical Field Award administered by the IEEE Awards Board covering all areas of the institute, and is one of the highest-level awards given by the IEEE.

The award recognizes outstanding early to mid-career contributions to technologies holding the promise of innovative applications. Banerjee received this award in recognition of his “contributions to nano-materials, devices, circuits, and CAD, enabling low-power and low-cost electronics”.

Banerjee’s visionary ideas and research into low-power electronics, including 3-dimensional ICs and thermal-aware IC design, have found wide scale implementation in the semiconductor industry. His research group has also spearheaded the use of low-dimensional nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and other 2D crystals for overcoming power dissipation and other fundamental challenges in nanoscale devices, interconnects and sensors.
