Thermal Measurement Expert Dr. Andras Poppe Honored with the Harvey Rosten Award For Excellence

Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced that Dr. Andras Poppe, associate professor at the Budapest University of Technology, Department of Electron Devices, has received the Harvey Rosten Award For Excellence in the Physical Design of Electronics. Dr. Poppe received the award for his paper, “A Step Forward in Multi-domain Modeling of Power LEDs,” at the 29th annual IEEE Thermal Measurement, Modeling and Management Symposium (SemiTHERM).

The Harvey Rosten Award For Excellence has been established by the family and friends of Harvey Rosten, who was responsible for the development of the world’s first commercial general purpose computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, and co-founder of Flomerics (now a division of Mentor Graphics Corporation). The Award commemorates Rosten's achievements in the field of thermal analysis of electronics equipment, and the thermal modeling of electronics parts and packages. The award aims to encourage innovation and excellence in these fields.

Former Harvey Rosten Award winners include scientists from Philips Semiconductors, Sun Microsystems, Infineon Technologies, STMicroelectronics, Raytheon, Villanova University, Purdue University and Georgia Institute of Technology.

“We recognize Andras Poppe for his contributions to our industry since he is a noted expert in thermal simulation and test methodologies, particularly in the LED sector,” stated Dr. Clemens Lasance, former principal scientist with Phillips Research and Harvey Rosten Award committee member. “Dr. Poppe’s research and active involvement with key industry standards bodies, such as JEDEC and CIE, have had a major impact on our industry, so we are proud to honor him today.”

Dr. Poppe’s fields of interest include thermal transient testing of packaged semiconductor devices, compact thermal modeling of semiconductor packages, characterization of LEDs and OLEDs, and electro-thermal simulation. He is an active member of the JEDEC JC15 and CIE TC2-63 and TC2-64 standardization committees. Dr. Poppe was actively involved in the development of the JEDEC JESD51-5x standards, targeting thermal characterization of power LED components, used by many LED manufacturers and LED assembly/packaging companies.

Dr. Poppe is also a product manager for the TeraLED® technology for LED testing in the Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis Division. The TeraLED product is used for thermal and radiometric/photometric characterization of high-power LEDs. When combined with the T3Ster thermal transient tester, the technologies provide a comprehensive, automated LED testing station. Besides Dr. Poppe’s academic interest in LED multi-domain modeling, currently he is active in development of industrial testing solutions for LEDs in his role at Mentor Graphics.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
