IBM internal awards:

  • Research Division Technical Group Award in 2003
    The IBM Research Division Technical Group Awards was established to recognize leadership, rapid execution and exceptional teamwork in today’s business environment.
    The award recognizes contributions to inventing and utilizing a new emission technique for eliminating latchup problems in CMOS technologies.
  • Patent Plateaus in 2005 (1st), 2008 (2nd, 3rd), 2010 (4th)
    The award is issued on the forth filed patent application and recognizes innovation capabilities.
  • Bravo! Award in 2003 and 2004
    The award is a monetary prize from the management to recognize exceptional commitment, contributions and results on a technical issue relating IBM products.
  • Thanks! Award in 2004 (1), 2005 (2), 2006 (3), 2007 (2), and 2008 (1)
    The award is issued from peers in recognition of exceptional help provided to them in their research activities, above and beyond normal team collaboration.

Additional external recognitions:

  • Stellari's animation methodology for lathcup testing
    The methodology that we developed in 2003 to study latch-up ignition and propagation by using time-integrated emission measurements has been recently reported as "Stellari's animation methodology" in the book "Latchup" by S.H. Voldman (John Wiley, 2007).  The author reports that the techniques allows for better visual understanding of the latch-up ignition with a greater time resolution compared to the standard JDEC78 technique.  The latchup propagation phenomenon is controlled and studied by limiting the injection current and taking subsequent time integrated images of the emission due to carrier recombination.  Additional results presented in our previous papers have also been reported.
