Professor Jürgen Teich honored by IEEE
Prof. Jürgen Teich, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Germany, has been named an IEEE Fellow. He is being recognized for contributions to hardware/software co-design for embedded systems.
Embedded systems are integrated in almost any technical device of our daily life such as smartphone, medical devices and driver assistance systems in vehicles. In order to satisfy safety, timing predictability and reliability of these systems of increasing complexity, new design methodologies have to be developed for their synthesis in hardware and programming in software. In this area, Prof. Teich has provided pioneering work in modeling, design space exploration, multi-objective optimization and automatic synthesis of hardware/software co-designed systems.
The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one-percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.
The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for advancing technology for humanity. Through its 400,000 plus members in 160 countries, the association is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.
