Calling him a techno visionary, serial entrepreneur, researcher, and philanthropist, VSI acknowledged Dr Gupta’s widespread positive impact on semiconductor product design, manufacturing, research, start-ups, talent & skills development. It said that he continues to provide leadership and be a source of inspiration for millions of young VLSI & semiconductor engineers in India and around the world. During the event, global semiconductor visionary, Dr Naveed Sherwani highlighted lifetime contributions by Dr Gupta and the impact on the global semiconductor community at large. Prof. Thomas Lee of Stanford University felicitated Dr Gupta with the award.

Feeling “deeply honoured” to receive the award, Dr Gupta remarked, “This is a recognition of the great contribution of thousands of my fellow VLSIians & Semiconductor professionals across India & around the world. This unstoppable journey started at least 3 decades ago with a single mission of ‘Making India World-Class Electronics & Semiconductor Product Nation’. My collective dream is to make India a true Semiconductor Product Nation by having 1,000+ Fabless semiconductor product companies across the length and breadth of India with at least 1 Fabless product company in each district of India and to start B.Tech. program for Electronics & VLSI Design in 100+ colleges across India for producing world-class talent.”

Vishwani Agarwal, Professor Emeritus at Auburn University and a guiding force behind the International Conference on VLSI Design and the VLSI Society of India believes that recognizing the techno-visionaries, transformation champions & difference makers will encourage even more people to make the best of this exhilarating period of innovation in Semiconductors and VLSI Design. He said: “It is a matter of pride for all of us to recognise Dr. Satya Gupta for his tremendous contributions to India’s digital Electronics ecosystem, especially the Mission for making India a true Semiconductor product nation. His contributions have stretched across Technology, Products, Start-ups, Academia, Government, Research, and Industry domains. He is an inspiration for the Global Electronics & Semiconductors Industry.”

VLSID-2023 was held at Hyderabad from 8th Jan 2023 to 12th Jan 2023 and was presided over by Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Hon’ble Union Minister of State for Electronics & IT and Skill development and entrepreneurship, Govt. of India.

Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. Since their inception in the late 1980s, the purpose of VSI has been to contribute to and promote the advancement of all aspects of VLSI technology, primarily in India.
