Alessandra Nardi Receives Marie Pistilli Award for Women in EDA
Cadence's Alessandra Nardi, software engineering group director, is the 2020 recipient of the Marie R. Pistilli Women in Electronic Design Award, an annual honor that recognizes individuals who have significantly helped advance women in electronic design. The award is named for the late Marie R. Pistilli. Although she had retired, she was one of the driving forces in the creation of the Design Automation Conference (DAC) and all that it has become. Her name lives on in the award and in MP Associates, the company that still runs DAC.
