WALTHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 22, 2007— The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has named Arvind, founder of Bluespec(TM) Inc., developer of the only electronic system level (ESL) synthesis for control logic and complex datapaths in chip design, a 2006 ACM Fellow.
Arvind, who is the Johnson professor of Computer Science and
Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),
received this award for his contributions to dataflow computing and
verification. The ACM Fellows Program celebrates exceptional
contributions of leading members in the computing field who have
helped to enlighten researchers, developers, practitioners and
end-users of information technology throughout the world.
Arvind was named an IEEE Fellow in 1994 and received the Charles
Babbage Outstanding Scientist Award. In 1999, he was honored with the
Distinguished Alumni Award from the Indian Institute of Technology,
Kanpur, where he received his B. Tech. in Electrical Engineering. Also
in 1999, the University of Minnesota, where he was awarded a master's
of science degree and Ph.D. in Computer Science, awarded him with its
Distinguished Alumni Award.
He contributed to the development of dynamic dataflow
architectures, the implicitly parallel programming languages Id and
pH, and compilation of these languages on parallel machines. In 1992,
his group at MIT built a dozen Monsoon dataflow machines and
associated software in collaboration with Motorola. Arvind has served
on editorial boards, chaired professional conferences and consulted
for many top tier technology and computer companies. He was founder
and president of Sandburst, a fabless semiconductor company acquired
by Broadcom in 2006.
ACM will formally recognize its new Fellows at its annual Awards
Banquet in June in San Diego, Calif. Additional information about the
ACM 2006 Fellows, the awards event, as well as previous ACM Fellows

Bluespec Inc. manufactures industry standards-based Electronic
Design Automation (EDA) toolsets that significantly raise the level of
abstraction for hardware design while retaining the ability to
automatically synthesize high-quality RTL, without compromising speed,
power or area. The toolsets, the only ones focused on control and
complex datapaths, allow ASIC and FPGA designers to reduce design
time, bugs and re-spins that contribute to product delays and
escalating costs. More information can be found on www.bluespec.com or
