EDN Innovation Awards Spotlight High-Tech's Best Achievements

12/15/2004 - EDN Magazine, the premier design publication for electrical engineers, will host the 15th annual Innovation Awards gala event on March 7, 2005. Instituted in 1990, the Innovation Awards honor the people, products and technologies that have shaped the semiconductor industry over the past year. In addition to recognizing the innovators of today, the program also nurtures the award-winning designers of tomorrow through an annual contribution to engineering education. A portion of the proceeds from the Innovation Awards ceremony is donated to the engineering university of the Innovator of the Year's choice.

"Thanks to the creative genius of the engineers and companies in this industry, people can take technology with them wherever they go," said John Dodge, Editor-in-Chief of EDN Worldwide. "From personal tools like cell phones, laptop computers, PDAs, and IpodsTM to our automobiles and digital TVs, technology touches every aspect of our lives. The Innovation Awards spotlight the most significant advancements this year, because they will affect the kinds of products that can be brought to market next year."

The gala awards ceremony will be held from 6:00pm - 10:00pm on Monday, March 7th, 2005, at The Palace Hotel, New Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA. Attendees can register for the event at www.EDN.com/innovation.

"EDN is excited to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Innovation awards. This is a special program that gives the design and development engineering community the recognition it deserves and helps keep the innovation process and our industry moving forward. We look forward to seeing all of the finalists in San Francisco as we honor the greatest technological advancements of 2004." EDN Vice President and Publishing Director Stephen Moylan stated.
