EDN Inovation Award | Cypress Semiconductor
EDN Inovation Award
March 03, 2010
Scientists and authors have the Nobel Prize, mathematicians have the Field Medal, journalists have the Pulitzer Prize, Athletics have the Olympic medal, and until recently snow boarders had the Golden Bong or something like that.
For electrical engineering it is the EDN innovative awards. This year we have been nominated for the PSoC 3/5 architecture and the Creator software tool.
Instituted in 1990, the Innovation Awards honor the people, products, and technologies that have shaped the semiconductor industry over the past year. Through March 19, EDN’s worldwide audience of electronic engineers and engineering managers will use an online ballot to select the ultimate winners from among the finalists. EDN’s editorial staff also takes part in determining the final winners. Winners will be announced at a reception and awards ceremony on April 26, in San Jose. More information on the nominees and voting for the winners is available at www.edn.com/innovation20.
I have previous been nominated for an article I wrote and although I didn’t win I would like to say it is an honor just to be nominated. I would like to say that but I can’t because it’s total bullsh*t. It is an honor to win, period! The first Cypress core value is:
We are about winning
It doesn’t say:
“We are honored just to be nominated.”
Now since I have a column for Electronic Design, the chance of me winning is pretty small. So I must live my glory under the Cypress umbrella.
For us to win you have to vote. Find a way to vote multiple times. Get your mother to vote. Give computer lessons at the Senior Center and get all those old people to volt. Be creative. As they say in Chicago:
Vote early and often
