As our customers continue to dream up the great-and increasingly complex - new products of tomorrow, it is our challenge to stay a step ahead and deliver the innovation that ensures they aren't limited by the design technologies at their disposal."

The award was established in 1985 to mark "outstanding and exemplary contributions by an industrial entity, governmental or academic organization, or other corporate body," according to the IEEE. The contribution may be achieved "through the medium of innovative products, product lines, systems, or concepts, which have resulted in major advancement of the arts and sciences of electrotechnology."
