The prestigious J.J. Ebers Award was established in 1971 to “foster progress in electron devices and to commemorate the life activities of Jewell James Ebers, whose distinguished contributions, particularly in the transistor art, shaped the understanding and technology of electron devices,” according to the society. The award is presented annually to honor an individual who has made either a single or a series of contributions of recognized scientific, economic, or social significance in the broad field of electron devices.

The Award was presented to Wang on December 5, 2022, at the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) in San Francisco. “This is our Society's highest honor to recognize outstanding technical contributions to the field of electron devices that have made a lasting impact,” said Ravi Todi, IEEE EDS president, in a congratulatory letter.

An IEEE Fellow and Fellow of National Academy of Inventors, Wang conducts research on microelectronics integrated circuits and systems.
