I am a full custom analog and mixed-signal IC design consultant. I have been consulting for over 22 years following 12 years as a staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
Electrical engineer with over 7 years of experience in the semiconductor industry. Working experience in Analog IC Design, Silicon/FPGA Lab bring-up and testing, FPGA Prototyping/Emulation & ASIC/SoC Design,
Electronics Engineer with 10 years experience in microelectronics and research. Familiar with CMOS integrated circuits design, wireless communication systems, programming and lab environment, I am comfortable working for worldwide semiconductors firms. Passionate for high-tech and music, advocate for teamwork and collective intelligence to support a strong problem-solving methodology, I am curious, self-motivated, addicted to learning and re-shaping the new technologies I am exposed to. During my workday I aspire to address "real-life problems", hopefully continuing to develop my multi-disciplinary skills as a means for technical and personal enrichment.
Post-doctoral research fellow in the discipline of Software and Systems, School of Computer Science and Statistics, Trinity College Dublin, with a keen interest in learning new things, specially related to computer science and engineering. Around 4 years experience of teaching and research and more than 10 years of experience in architecture design, optimization, analysis, implementation and verification of digital and digital signal processing systems on FPGAs and ASICs. Diversifying research career by working on quantization of deep convolution neural networks. Author of three peer reviewed journal publications and five international conference publications.
I’m an engineer always looking to learn, optimize and automate. I work on data analytics to provide deep insights into hardware designs, particularly physical design flow. Exploring areas to facilitate design engineers in taking data driven decisions for faster design turnaround times. I like to think about life. I like experimenting with different techniques (using software tools and meditation) to optimize my day and work effectively. In my free time, I’m learning Web Programming to build my own blog. I know there are templates and websites but where’s the fun and learning if you don’t do it from scratch? I like mentoring students on how to approach career and life in general.
Osaze Shears is passionate about many engineering and computational concepts. These include embedded systems, application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), and microprocessor technologies. Osaze spends his free time tutoring other students who are interested in learning to become better computer scientists and engineers to benefit the greater society. Osaze is currently a PhD student at Virginia Tech conducting research under the Multifunctional Integrated Circuits and Systems (MICS) lab. His research interests include: • Spiking Neural Networks • Hardware Acceleration • SoC Design with ASICs and FPGAs • Deep Learning • Edge Computing
