For those of you who simply can't get enough of the images from this week's UBM ACE Award ceremony (you know who you are), we present the winners of the ACE Ultimate Product Awards.
UBM Electronics, the publisher of both EE Times and EDN, honored the winners of the 2012 UBM ACE Awards earlier this week in San Jose, Calif. The awards recognize the people, companies and products that are changing the world of electronics.
The ACE Ultimate Product Awards salute those products in electronics which stood apart from the crowd in the past year for innovation, creativity and market impact.
Without further ado, we present representatives from the Ultimate Products winners accepting their ACE Awards on Tuesday evening.

Xilinx' 28-nm Zynq-7000 extensible processing platform (EPP), designed for embedded systems that require high levels of processing performance and low power, was recognized as the ACE Ultimate Product Award winner among SoCs.
Wow! Freescale got two awards! Can't see anybody from big guy like ADI and ST. Anyway, good to see all these innovations and hope to see more and better innovation (not just a speed up version of a particular existing design) in the future!
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
