Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering Director and Professor Michael Pecht, will receive the 2010 Exceptional Technical Achievement Award by the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Components Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (CPMT) Society.

Pecht is being recognized for more than 20 years of contributions to the area of electronics reliability, which includes his development of the field of prognostics for electronics. With prognostics for electronics, Pecht introduced models that enable in-situ assessment of the deviation or degradation of a product from expected normal operating conditions and the prediction of the future state of reliability of that product.

Pecht's contributions have been presented through a multitude of invited talks, short courses, articles, book chapters, handbooks and books designed to reach a global audience. The CPMT society will present the Exceptional Technical Achievement Award to Pecht at the 60th Electronic Components and Technology Conference, to be held in June.

The CPMT Exceptional Technical Achievement Award recognizes individual or group achievement in the fields of components, packaging and manufacturing technology. Winners are selected according to the contribution of a significant invention, technology, product or work that advances progress in CPMT fields of interest.
