SIA pres­ents the Noy­ce Award annu­al­ly in reco­gni­ti­on of a lea­der who has made out­stan­ding con­tri­bu­ti­ons to the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try in tech­no­lo­gy or public poli­cy. Dr. Su will accept the award at the SIA Lea­ders­hip Forum and Award Cele­bra­ti­on, a vir­tu­al event that will take place on Thurs­day, Nov. 19, 2019.

A tre­men­dous lea­der in our indus­try, Lisa Su has suc­cess­ful­ly advan­ced lea­ding-edge semi­con­duc­tor and high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting tech­no­lo­gies throughout her care­er as an accom­plis­hed busi­ness exe­cu­ti­ve and engi­neer,” said John Neuffer, SIA pre­si­dent and CEO. “Lisa’s out­stan­ding achie­ve­ments have signi­fi­cant­ly streng­t­he­ned the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try and America’s glo­bal tech­no­lo­gy lea­ders­hip, and she has inspi­red and ope­ned doors for count­less others in tech along the way. On behalf of the SIA board of direc­tors, it is my plea­su­re to announ­ce Lisa as the 2020 Robert N. Noy­ce Award reci­pi­ent in reco­gni­ti­on of her impres­si­ve accomplishments.”

Dr. Su has ser­ved as pre­si­dent and CEO of AMD sin­ce Octo­ber 2014 and also ser­ves on the AMD board of direc­tors. During her ten­u­re, AMD has beco­me a lea­der in high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting and gra­phics tech­no­lo­gies for the PC, data cen­ter, and gaming mar­kets. Pre­vious­ly, she was chief ope­ra­ting offi­cer respon­si­ble for all aspects of pro­duct stra­te­gy and exe­cu­ti­on. Pri­or to joi­ning AMD in 2012, Dr. Su ser­ved in a varie­ty of high-level roles at several semi­con­duc­tor com­pa­nies, inclu­ding Freesca­le Semi­con­duc­tor, IBM, and Texas Instruments.

Dr. Su has bachelor’s, master’s and doc­to­ra­te degrees in electri­cal engi­nee­ring from the Mas­sa­chu­setts Insti­tu­te of Tech­no­lo­gy (MIT). She has publis­hed more than 40 tech­ni­cal arti­cles and was named a Fel­low of the Insti­tu­te of Elec­tro­nics and Electri­cal Engi­neers in 2009. In 2018, Dr. Su was elec­ted to the Natio­nal Aca­de­my of Engi­nee­ring, was named “Busi­ness­per­son of the Year” by For­tu­ne Maga­zi­ne, and recei­ved the pres­ti­gious Dr. Mor­ris Chang Exem­pla­ry Lea­ders­hip Award. In 2019, Dr. Su was named one of the World’s 50 Best CEOs by Barron’s, one of the “Most Power­ful Women in Busi­ness” by For­tu­ne Maga­zi­ne, one of “The Best-Per­forming CEOs in the World” by Har­vard Busi­ness Review, and she was inclu­ded in “The Bloom­berg 50” list of peop­le who defi­ned the year.

It is a tre­men­dous honor to recei­ve the Noy­ce Award and join the dis­tin­guis­hed list of pre­vious reci­pi­ents, many of whom I’m for­tu­n­a­te to count as men­tors, role models, col­leagues, and friends,” said Su. “I look for­ward to con­ti­nuing to push the enve­lo­pe of what we can accom­plish in the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try, which has beco­me so instru­men­tal to every aspect of our lives.”

The Noy­ce Award is named in honor of semi­con­duc­tor indus­try pioneer Robert N. Noy­ce, co-foun­der of Fairch­ild Semi­con­duc­tor and Intel Corporation.
