SAN FRANCISCO—Ted Moise, manager of Texas Instruments Inc.'s non-volatile memory roadmap, is received the 2012 Edith and Peter O’Donnell Award from The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas during the organization's annual conference Thursday (Jan. 12).
Moise was awarded the honor for innovations in the development of ultra-low power memory technologies, TI said.
"Throughout his 20-year career, Ted has been known as an innovator," said Venu Menon, vice president and manager of analog technology development at TI. "His work at TI has resulted in technology breakthroughs that are making a difference in people’s lives and will only become more significant in the future."
Moise is most widely recognized for development of 130-nm ultra-low power ferroelectric memory (FRAM), which enables medical, consumer and industrial products to work more efficiently and longer on a single charge.
Moise is also a member of the technical staff emeritus at TI. He holds 41 patents related to electronic devices, designs or techniques to reduce manufacturing costs or decrease power consumption by as much as 10 times. He has authored or co-authored more than 80 papers and has presented research at numerous international industry events.
The O’Donnell Award recognizes rising Texas researchers who are addressing the essential role that science and technology play in society, and whose work meets the highest standards of exemplary professional performance, creativity and resourcefulness, TI said.
