Eric Bogatin Named DesignCon’s Engineer of the Year
The DesignCon community honored Dr. Eric Bogatin with the prestigious Engineer of the Year Award for his many contributions to the engineering industry.
DesignCon 2016, held January 19 – 21 in Santa Clara, Calif., recognized Dr. Eric Bogatin of the Teledyne LeCroy Signal Integrity Academy with its 2016 Engineer of the Year Award for his leadership, creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking.
“I am thrilled and honored to be selected as engineer of the year,” says Bogatin. “Just having been nominated and making the finalist list was a thrill. I felt honored to be in the company of some of the industry experts like Istvan Novak, Bob Shaefer, and the late Steve Weir.”
The DesignCon Engineer of the Year Award honors professionals in the engineering space for innovation, forward thinking, and positive contributions to the design/test of chips, boards, or systems. After peers nominated Bogatin, the editors of EDN/EETimes selected him as a finalist, and the DesignCon community – which he’s both a longtime supporter of and contributor to – pronounced him the winner by vote.
An industry-wide resource for all things SI and PI, Bogatin’s books, public classes, online resources, and DesignCon participation have enriched and educated the engineering community for decades. At DesignCon 2016, he led an all-day Signal Integrity Bootcamp, participated in a speed-training event in the Chiphead Theater, and contributed to multiple panels.
“Eric is so deserving of the DesignCon Engineer of the Year Award,” says DesignCon Technical Program Director, Janine Love. “He has been involved in DesignCon since its very beginnings, and he remains committed to the spirit of DesignCon by continuing to teach and share what he knows with others. I will always be grateful to Eric for his service to DesignCon, and congratulate him heartily on being selected by his peers as the DesignCon Engineer of the Year.”
