A highlight of the recent Executive Forum on Microelectronics, the 17th such event, was the presentation of this year’s Outstanding Service Awards. Nominations for these awards came from the attendees of previous events, and the recipients this year continued a fine tradition that has been in place since 1999.
Over 41 years of research in analog and digital circuit design, Dr. Jim Haslett has excelled at solving real world industrial problems for high temperature oil field instrumentation, satellite instrumentation and wireless communications. He has graduated more than 40 Masters and Doctorate students and is currently the “Faculty Professor” in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, within the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary.
Kirk Mandy led Zarlink Semiconductor (formerly Mitel Semiconductor) to become a world-leading microelectronics company but still found the extra time and energy to contribute to our Microelectronics community through the Strategic Microelectronics Corporation; the Canadian Microelectronics Corp.; the Ottawa Center for Research and Innovation; Micronet; the Telecommunications Research Center of Ontario; the National Research Council's Innovation Forum; and the Ottawa Partnership.
