Summary

My expertise is offered based on having worked more than a decade in the semiconductor/electronics industry filling various positions ranging from digital frontend design, test automation, ASIC emulation and embedded firmware and FPGA design. The more recent years I have worked as an independent freelance engineer mainly performing embedded firmware and FPGA design work. Strong sides include excellent debugging skills and ability to get complex systems working.
