Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced that Dr. Andras Poppe, associate professor at the Budapest University of Technology, Department of Electron Devices, has received the Harvey Rosten Award For Excellence in the Physical Design of Electronics. Dr. Poppe received the award for his paper, “A Step Forward in Multi-domain Modeling of Power LEDs,” at the 29 th annual IEEE Thermal Measurement, Modeling and Management Symposium (SemiTHERM).
Dr. Poppe’s fields of interest include thermal transient testing of packaged semiconductor devices, compact thermal modeling of semiconductor packages, characterization of LEDs and OLEDs, and electro-thermal simulation. He is an active member of the JEDEC JC15 and CIE TC2-63 and TC2-64 standardization committees. Dr. Poppe was actively involved in the development of the JEDEC JESD51-5x standards, targeting thermal characterization of power LED components, used by many LED manufacturers and LED assembly/packaging companies.Dr. Poppe is also a product manager for the TeraLED® technology for LED testing in the Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis Division. The TeraLED product is used for thermal and radiometric/photometric characterization of high-power LEDs. When combined with the T3Ster thermal transient tester, the technologies provide a comprehensive, automated LED testing station. Besides Dr. Poppe’s academic interest in LED multi-domain modeling, currently he is active in development of industrial testing solutions for LEDs in his role at Mentor Graphics.
