Eli HarariSanDisk Corp. has announced that it will be awarding its co-founder, chairman and CEO Eli Harari the IEEE Robert N. Noyce Medal at the IEEE Honours Ceremony due to be held in Los Angeles on June 25th.

The award will be granted in recognition of Harari's innovation of flash memory technology as well as his contribution to the proliferation of flash memory devices and strong leadership within the semiconductor industry.

Harari co-founded SanDisk back in 1988 alongside colleagues Sanjay Mehrotra, president and COO, and Jack Yuan. Since then he has been an integral part of the transition from NOR-based memory to NAND-based flash memory as well as the invention and development of multilevel cell data storage.

Harari holds a doctorate degree in solid-state sciences from Princeton University and a bachelor's degree in physics with honours from Manchester University. He invented the floating gate EEPROM and the precursor to flash as well as having a technical resumé that includes more than 100 US and foreign patents alongside numerous technical publications.
