ISPSD2021 | The 33rd International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs (ISPSD)

ISPSD Hall of Fame

The purpose of the ISPSD Hall of Fame (IHF) is to honor individuals who have made high impact contributions in advancing power semiconductor technology and/or sustaining the success of ISPSD. Since 2018 the IHF has replaced the traditional “Contributory Awards” and “Pioneer Awards”.
