Xilinx Research Labs Fellow Steve Trimberger to be Honored at ACM Induction Ceremony with 2010 Class of Fellows

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 1, 2011 – Xilinx Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced that Xilinx Research Labs Fellow, Steve Trimberger, has been chosen by the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) to be inducted into the class of 2010 ACM fellows for his achievements in computer science and information technology.  

Recognition as an ACM fellow is the most prestigious member grade granted to the top one percent of ACM members for outstanding accomplishments in computing and information technology and/or outstanding service to ACM and the larger computing community.  Trimberger is being honored for his contributions to engineering innovation over more than two decades at Xilinx, the world’s leading provider of programmable platforms.

The 2010 class of fellows, from the world’s leading universities, corporations, and research labs, are being cited for advances that are driving the innovations necessary to sustain competitiveness in the digital age. The ACM will formally recognize the new fellows at its annual awards banquet on June 4, 2011, in San Jose, California.

Trimberger is one of Xilinx’s most tenured and distinguished employees – and the first Xilinx engineer to be inducted as an ACM fellow – having played a pivotal role in the creation of many generations of field programmable gate array (FPGA) architectures and the electronic design automation software to design and program those devices.  For example, Trimberger led the software development for XC4000 devices and architecture development for XC4000X families, as well as the design and software development for Xilinx’s time-multiplexed FPGA.  In addition, he designed the device security used in Xilinx FPGA FPGAs. Trimberger currently holds over 175 patents, with dozens more pending.

“We’re grateful to the ACM for recognizing Steve’s contributions to the electronics industry and our company,” said Xilinx Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Ivo Bolsens. “Since 1988, Steve’s vision and creative drive have not only influenced the future of the programmable logic industry, but fueled inventive end products designed by our customers. To this day, he exemplifies a spirit of innovation that’s shared by the entire engineering community here at Xilinx and drives the invention of phenomenal new technology and products that continue to shape the future of the semiconductor industry.”

Trimberger received his BS in Engineering and Applied Science from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), MS in Information and Computer Science from UC Irvine, and PhD in Computer Science from California Institute of Technology. Notably, he studied under EDA pioneer and Inventors Hall of Fame recipient Professor Carver Mead.

Create Multi-Band Sensor Networks with the LaunchPad SensorTag Kit

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments

Doing IoT development today can involve a number of different communications standards. There is no “one size fits all” for wireless protocols. Every application has its own needs and constraints. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Adrian Fernandez of Texas Instruments about the new LaunchPad SensorTag development kit - that can launch your IoT design regardless of what wireless standards you need.
