Photo of William SongDr. William S. Song, a senior technical staff member in the Embedded and Open Systems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, was selected for elevation to Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), effective 1 January 2015.

The IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology. Fellow status in the IEEE recognizes exceptional distinction in one's profession and is conferred on the basis of accomplishments that "contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science, and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society."

Dr. Song was recognized for "contributions in high-performance low-power embedded processors." At Lincoln Laboratory, he has worked on high-performance sensor systems and very large-scale integration (VLSI) signal processor technologies for adaptive sensor array applications. He has developed numerous advanced signal processing algorithms, architectures, real-time embedded processors, and sensor array systems. His more recent research has been in the areas of mixed-signal systems on chip, high-throughput low-power VLSI signal processors, and a multiprocessor system for graph algorithm computations and matrix operations.

Dr. Song is the inventor on 14 U.S. patents, has submitted 24 invention disclosures, and has authored or coauthored 31 journal and conference publications. He was awarded a 2005 MIT Lincoln Laboratory Technical Excellence Award for "pushing the boundaries of radar systems by developing new components and processes to exploit digital technologies." He holds bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
