I am an Electronics Engineer with experience in IT Management, Firmware Development and Education. I spend my spare time looking for interesting projects and reading about technology trends.
35 years mixed signal SoC, ASIC, and FPGA design and management experience. Concertal provides rapid functional IP integration using proprietary System Design Automation technology that includes delivery of RTOS capable fabric that supports loosely coupled HW operation including IP NbC (Network beyond the Chip). IP areas of expertise include common interfaces, data converters, modulators, digital filters, DSP, processors, FSM, and other custom specified functionality.
José T. de Sousa holds a PhD degree from Imperial College London (1998) and has been a university lecturer and researcher at Lisbon University (1999-present). He holds 4 international patents, is co-author of one book, and was General Chair of the Field Programmable Logic and Applications Conference in 2013. Dr. de Sousa has published more than 70 technical papers in international journals and conferences. He was co-founder and CEO of Coreworks, a semiconductor intellectual property company, which he ran from 2001 to 2013. His specialties are digital circuit design, hardware/software architecture, technical team management and semiconductor IP marketing and sales.
Expert in embedded and mobile applications since 2003. Has many years of experience in software and hardware development, effective team management. Excellent in the research and development, technology findings and implementations.
Passionate about engineering and electronics. Love teaching and mentoring. Highly experience in analogue and RF electronics and enjoy managing projects.
An experienced mixed-signal IC design engineer / design manager with over 25 years experience. Has design and led the design of multiple mixed-signal ICs through to tapeout and silicon verification. Also experienced with the delivery of IP blocks. Worked across multiple market sectors.
I am an experienced semiconductor expert with twenty years of experience both in top semiconductor companies such as Sony, National Semiconductor, Analog Devices, and Cambridge Silicon Radio and much smaller companies such as Pericom and Theta Microelectronics. I designed high-volume products for customers including Quantum, Western Digital, Hewlett-Packard and Nokia.
