Dr. Yervant Zorian Wins IEEE's Hans Karlsson Award for Technical Leadership and Achievement Through Collaboration
Dr. Yervant Zorian, vice president and chief scientist at Virage Logic Corporation, has garnered numerous awards for his leadership and technology innovation in embedded test and repair of semiconductor IP. Adding to his list of honors, Dr. Zorian this week received the Hans Karlsson Award for outstanding leadership, communications, and achievement with the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Testability Method for Embedded Core-based ICs standard (IEEE Std. 1500tm-2005) through collaboration with major industry groups. Dr. Zorian chairs the IEEE Computer Society TTTC (Test Technology Technical Council) Technical Activity Committee on Embedded Core Test.
The award was presented on November 1, 2006, in Southern California, at a special banquet. Deborah Cooper, president of the IEEE Computer Society, presented Dr. Zorian with the award and noted, "I am pleased to present this award to Dr. Yervant Zorian, whose seminal work in shaping the semiconductor industry honors Hans Karlsson's memory. At the core of the Hans Karlsson Award is recognition of technical leadership, diplomacy, and joint achievement. Dr. Zorian's work as a founder, leader, and advocate of IEEE Standard 1500 put to the test his honed diplomatic skills. His outstanding achievement working with a highly diverse team is testament to his exemplary leadership skills. We are fortunate to have Yervant as a leader, a colleague and friend of the IEEE Computer Society."
The IEEE Computer Society's selection committee, comprising distinguished professionals in the computer industry, selected Dr. Zorian based on nominations and recommendations from his peers. The Hans Karlsson Award recognizes teamwork in areas of the computer industry where individual aspirations, corporate, and organizational rivalry can hinder collaboration. Since its inception in 1992, the award has only been given six times.
"I am honored to receive this prestigious award," said Dr. Zorian, in his acceptance speech. "I feel fortunate to work closely with so many talented and forward-thinking individuals in the semiconductor industry. Our teamwork has fostered system-on-chip test interoperability throughout the industry, and allowed us at Virage Logic to leverage it and extend it further to achieve self-repair in our Silicon Aware IP, and thus create innovative and exceptional results that I am extremely proud of."
