Andre DeHon, Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Systems Engineering and Computer and Information Science, is among the members of the IEEE Computer Society to be elevated to IEEE Fellow status for his “contributions to reconfigurable computing and FPGAs.”
The IEEE Board of Directors confers the title of Fellow upon a person of outstanding and extraordinary qualifications and experience in IEEE-designated fields, who has made important individual contributions to one or more of those fields. The elevation to Fellow recognizes exceptional distinction in the engineering profession.
DeHon is broadly interested in how we physically implement computations
from substrates, including VLSI and molecular electronics, up through
architecture, CAD, and programming models. In addition to performance,
cost, and energy, his work addresses security and defect and variation
tolerance. He places special emphasis on spatial programmable
architectures (e.g. FPGAs) and interconnect design and optimization. He is
also a Fellow of the ACM. He was recognized as one of Technology Review’s
100 young innovators in 2003. He has 9 papers in the TC-FPGA Hall of Fame
for FPGAs and Reconfigurable Computing and 2 best papers from ICFPT.
