NVIDIA's Chris Malachowsky to Answer "Watts Next..." During Luncheon Hosted by IEEE Council on EDA at ICCAD

Will Offer Glimpse of Power Efficiency Across NVIDIA's Processor Product Lines

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2011) - Chris Malachowsky, NVIDIA fellow and senior vice president of research, will define "Watts Next..." during a luncheon hosted by the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) at the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD).

His talk, to be held Tuesday, November 8, at noon in the Donner/Siskiyou Ballroom at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, Calif., is open to all full ICCAD conference and Tuesday conference-only registrants.

Malachowsky co-founded NVIDIA in 1993 and has more than 30 years of industry experience. He currently is responsible for NVIDIA's research organization chartered with developing strategic technologies that will help drive the company's future growth and success.

In his presentation, he will explain why making the most economical and efficient use of power for a processor is essential. He will discuss power efficiency as it applies across NVIDIA's broad range of processor offerings from supercomputers to cell phones.

Malachowky has been instrumental in managing, defining and driving NVIDIA's core technologies as it has grown from a startup to the global leader in visual and parallel computing. As an executive at NVIDIA, his roles have been diverse, heading numerous functions, including IT, operations, and all facets of its product engineering.

Previously, Malachowsky held engineering and technical leadership positions at HP and Sun Microsystems. A recognized authority on integrated-circuit design and methodology, he has authored close to 40 patents. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida and a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Santa Clara University. Both schools have honored him with Distinguished Alumnus awards.

About the IEEE Council on EDA
The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) provides a focal point for EDA activities spread across six IEEE societies (Antennas and Propagation; Circuits and Systems; Computer; Electron Devices; Microwave Theory and Techniques; and Solid State Circuits). It sponsors more than 12 conferences, including the Design Automation Conference (DAC), International Conference in CAD (ICCAD) and Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE). CEDA publishes IEEE Transactions on CAD and the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters. CEDA is increasingly involved in recognizing its leaders via the A. Richard Newton Award, Early Career Award and Phil Kaufmann Award. CEDA welcomes volunteers and local chapters. For more information, go to:
