Dr. Lisa Su was awarded Robert N. Noyce Medal, the most prestigious semiconductor industry award

Just a month after NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang received the Robert N. Noyce Award from SIA (Semiconductor Industry Association), AMD CEO Lisa Su has become the first woman to receive a similarly named award from IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).

Robert N. Noyce medal is just one of the many awards the IEEE honors people in the semiconductor industry. It is worth noting that this award is not the same award that was the one that was awarded to Jensen Huang a month ago. Both medals are called after Robert N. Noyce, but they are from two different organizations.

Lisa Su received her IEEE award for “Leadership in groundbreaking semiconductor products and successful business strategies that contributed to the strength of the microelectronics industry”. She has become the first woman to receive this award from the organization sponsored by Intel since 2000.

Here’s how Dr. Su, an IEEE fellow, responded to the award:

To be honest, I would have never imagined that I would receive the Noyce award. It’s an honor of a lifetime. To have that recognition from my peers in the technical community is a humbling experience. But I love what I do and being able to contribute to the semiconductor industry.

— Dr. Lisa Su
