IEEE Milestone to the Dadda’s Multiplier
Inaugural Ceremony
Politecnico di Milano, De Donato Conference Room, piazza L. da Vinci 32, Milano
September 29, 2016 – 14:30-17:00

The IEEE Milestones in Electrical Engineering and Computing program honors significant technical achievements in the field of interest of the IEEE and recognizes the technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.

IEEE awarded a Milestone to the invention of an innovative high-speed multiplier architecture by prof. Luigi Dadda in 1965.
Luigi Dadda published the first description of the optimized scheme, subsequently called a Dadda Tree, for a digital circuit to compute the multiplication of unsigned fixed-point numbers in binary arithmetic. This circuit allowed the arithmetic units of microprocessor-based computers to execute complex arithmetic operations with a performance/cost ratio unequaled at that time.
This invention had an extraordinary impact in the area of computer engineering and science and all related applications, which ultimately resulted in unique benefits for improving the quality of daily life and the economy around the world.
Dadda’s conceptual design still constitutes the solid foundation for many research works and many industrial applications in the area of computer arithmetic.

It is worth noting that, so far, the IEEE Milestone has been assigned only to three other inventions developed in Italy for works by Alessandro Volta, Guglielmo Marconi, and Enrico Fermi. This very limited number clearly outline the extreme selectivity of the award and, consequently, the unique value of the Dadda’s Multiplier.

On 29 September 2016 the bronze plaque of this prestigious recognition will be placed by the IEEE al Departimento di Elettronica, Infromazione e Bioingegneria of the Politecnico di Milano.

During the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS2016) held in San Francisco, California, 22-27 May 2016 and organized by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Technique Society (MTT-S), an Italian undergraduate student of University of Pavia, Giulia Maria Rocco (IEEE student member) has been awarded of one of the 10th Undergraduate/Pre-graduate Scholarship – (https://www.mtt.org/students) of IEEE MTT Society for her project proposal.

The research proposal presents a low-loss and reconfigurable microwave components in SIW technology, manufactured by 3D printing. This device will open new perspectives in the field of wireless sensor networks and the Internet of Things, thanks to its compact size, flexibility, easy fabrication, and low cost. Her faculty mentor is Maurizio Bozzi (University of Pavia), IEEE Senior Member.

Congratulations to our young student member for this important award!

Pavia, July 11 to 15, 2016, Palazzo Vistarino.

“The topic of the course deals with Hybrid Microgrids, that are energy systems for powering small to medium power consumers in island or connected to the grid. Such systems are important not only for the developing countries looking for higher level of electrification, but also for the industrialized one as engaged in the definition of future smart energy systems, powered by distributed sources. The course is addressed not only to doctoral students from Pavia (IEIE) or abroad, but to all researchers interested in the issues of energy in its aspects of components, systems and controls. Also professional and graduated students are welcome until full coverage.”
Subjects include interests in the field of electrical engineering, electronics and information and areas connected to them, or cover topics of relevance to the IEEE. This bond is strengthened by the involvement of the Student Branch who is in charge of the invitation of the IEEE Distinguished Lecturers. Besides, we have been granted with the cooperative sponsorship of IEEE Italy Section and by CMAEL (Associazione Italiana dei ricercatori in convertitori macchine ed azionamenti elettrici).

The PhD school “Multiscale Bioengineering: from Molecules to organs (µMBioEng)” tries to elucidate how information coming from different scale in vivo biosignals and models can be integrated in bioengineering. A transversal approach is followed, involving bioengineers, medical physicists, researchers in biomechanics and biomaterials. Dedicated lectures will be given concerning molecular, biomaterial, and whole-organ models to be used for diagnostics and for therapy planning along with lectures introducing advanced biomedical signal processing techniques, with special emphasis on multiscale integration of information, and to signal processing as a support for the identification and validation of patient-specific models.

Perugia, June 6-10 2016.
