The award was established in 2004 by John D. Kraus, a renowned specialist in electromagnetics, antennas and radio astronomy through the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. 

The award was bestowed to Prof Zhang this year for his pioneering and significant contributions to the development of antenna-in-package (AiP) technology. AiP technology has been widely adopted by chipmakers and emerged as the antenna technology for millimetre-wave 5G and beyond. AiP technology has created a new industry sector and become a market hot spot. 

In 2012, Prof Zhang also won the prestigious S. A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award from the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. He is the only antenna researcher outside the US who has received both John Kraus Antenna Award and the Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award. In the world, only three people have had both awards so far.​
