Professor Daniel Gajski has been presented with an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Oldenburg, Germany in recognition of his contributions in the areas of Embedded Systems and Design Science. In the early 1980s, Dr. Gajski invented key concepts for the design of custom processors which are now widely used in the EDA industry. Later, he made seminal contributions for the synthesis and verification of multi-processor embedded systems. Dr. Gajski is currently the Henry Samueli “Turing” Endowed Chair and Director of the Center for Embedded Computer Systems at the University of California, Irvine.
