Kathy Herring Hayashi, IEEE Director Region 6 (Western US)

Kathy Hayashi

Kathy Herring Hayashi has been involved in the semiconductor industry her entire career — developing, deploying, and analyzing advanced software tools used to create computer and mobile phone chips. At Unisys, she was on the team that created one of the first Sperry mainframes on a chip using custom software. She has since worked for Cadence Design Systems and Syntricity, a local startup. She is now at Qualcomm, working with semiconductor workflows in large-scale compute environments. She is currently the IEEE Director of Region 6 (Western Region of the United States) and a member of the IEEE Board of Directors. She is a senior member of IEEE and IEEE-HKN (IEEE Honor Society).




Do you work in the semiconductor industry? IEEE has many technical societies and communities that support IEEE members throughout the semiconductor value chain.


Join Fred Schindler, Vice Presdient of IEEE Technical Activities Board, and Kathy Hayashi, Chair of IEEE Future Directions Global Semiconductors, as they discuss ways that those working in semiconductors globally can navigate relevant IEEE resources and communities. Learn which technical societies and communities offer the opportunity to connect with other IEEE members in your fields of interest and advance your technical knowledge and career.
