Well done!

It's great to see a woman win this award in a field that has been traditionally male dominated. Ms. Prakash sounds like a true innovator in her own right and well deserved of the honor. TI is doing some interesting research and development and it's good to know people like her are on the cutting edge.

Congratulations, Punya.  The Smart Home initiative is certainly an interesting assignment from an engineering point of view.  We need some new solutions that can help us turn the corner on better managing home resources and energy.  Cost effective and easy to use.  Good luck for the future.

I swear I was a shoe-in for this contest.

Congrats Punya.

She has a very diverse set of achievement. Proving that engineers should gain some knowledge and experience outside their field. Take note.

First i would like to congradulate her....

But its very misleading to use the term Top Innovator....

Elaborate more for us what products , systems and technologies she has done that have changed the world in 2012 and deserve  to be called a top innovator...I have a problem with that term.

She is a top engineer of the year according to the description of the achievements you have given us and she is on her way to be an innovator...not yet!!

I believe the award is for Rising Engineering stars, that being said it would have been nice to know more about her innovation.

TI AND TOP ENGINEER

I certainly would like to congratulate Punya.  I think congratulations must also go to Design News and Mouser for sponsoring a program that recognizes young engineering talent.  To often the "world" recognizes individuals who never contribute to the degree Punya has and hopefully will.  Lady Gaga, the Kardasians, Lindsey Lohan, etc----you get the picture, all hat and no cattle.   These young engineers are great credits to the engineering profession--probably never becoming "household names" but none the less significant contributors to society and certainly their companies.   I say well done.

Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
