Leo Mathew, a principal solid state engineer at Freescale Semiconductor, was named Innovator of the Year at the EE Times Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) awards ceremony, for his invention of a novel transistor structure. His inverted T-channel field-effect transistor (ITFET) combines vertical and horizontal structures into a single transistor. The device was fabricated using innovative 90nm SOI CMOS process techniques at Freescale’s Austin Technology & Manufacturing Center.
Freescale CEO Michel Mayer won the ACE Executive of the Year award, for leading the company to seven consecutive quarters of profitability, re-energizing the corporate culture and starting to build a global brand.
