Outstanding Engineer - IEEE-SCV, IEEE Region 6
Dr. Laurence W. Nagel
(Early 1970’s)
The IEEE-SCV presents this award to Laurence W. Nagel for his work from 1969-71 in the creation of SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis), the first software to combine DC, AC and transient analog circuit analysis capabilities. SPICE has achieved world-wide acceptance, spawned the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) industry for IC and board-level design, and was an early open source software initiative.
Larry was awarded two awards for Outstanding Engineer; one for IEEE – Santa Clara Valley Section, and one for IEEE, Region 6.
