Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang is the 2021 recipient of the Robert N. Noyce Award.

Huang will formally receive the recognition at the SIA Awards dinner on 18 November 2021. The 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.

SIA president and CEO John Neuffer says Jensen Huang’s vision and execution has strengthened the industry, revolutionised computing, and advanced artificial intelligence.

“Jensen’s accomplishments have fuelled countless innovations—from gaming to scientific computing to self-driving cars—and he continues to advance technologies that will transform our industry and the world. We are pleased to recognise Jensen with the 2021 Robert N. Noyce Award for his many achievements in advancing semiconductor technology,” Neuffer notes.

“I am honoured to receive the 2021 Noyce Award and do so on behalf of my colleagues at Nvidia, whose body of work this award recognises. It has been the greatest joy and privilege to have grown up with the semiconductor and computer industries—two that so impact the world,” Huang comments.

“As we enter the era of AI, robotics, digital biology, and the metaverse, we will see super-exponential technology advances. There’s never been a more exciting or important time to be in the semiconductor and computer industries,” he adds.

According to SIA, Huang founded Nvidia in 1993 and has been the CEO and a member of the board of directors since its inception. It started in 3D graphics, and eventually helped transformed the gaming market into the world’s largest entertainment industry.

Nvidia also ignited modern AI—the next era of computing—with the graphics processing unit (GPU) acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars.

Among others, Huang also holds exemplary distinction. Huang is a recipient of the IEEE Founder’s Medal, the Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award, and honorary doctorate degrees from Taiwan’s National Chiao Tung University, National Taiwan University, and Oregon State University.

In 2019, Harvard Business Review ranked him No. 1 on its list of the world’s 100 best-performing CEOs over the lifetime of their tenure. In 2017, he was named Fortune’s Businessperson of the Year.

Prior to founding Nvidia, Huang worked at LSI Logic and Advanced Micro Devices. Huang holds a BSEE degree from Oregon State University and an MSEE degree from Stanford University.

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