  • New IEEE Ebook - Over 100 Years of the IEEE Medal of Honor

    The IEEE Medal of Honor, widely considered to be equivalent to the Nobel Prize in the Field of Electronics and Electrical Sciences and Engineering, is the highest recognition of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It has been awarded since 1917, when its first recipient was Major Edwin H. Armstrong. It is given for an exceptional contribution or an extraordinary career in the IEEE fields of interest. The award consists of a gold medal, bronze replica, certificate, and honorarium. Only one award may be given each year.

    Recently, upon the award of the 100th Medal of Honor, the IEEE released a book chronicling the lives and inventions of the first 100 recipients of the Medal of Honour whose collective "contributions are evident in the technologies we use every day to communicate, work, travel, stay healthy, and entertain ourselves. Their endeavors have helped accelerate the pace of technological change, often building on each other, to evolve large and small advances to even greater heights".

    In order to ensure that every member has the opportunity to read and access this book, it has been made available as a free e-book, which can be downloaded here:
