Retired; My final position was as an embedded developer at Sandia National Laboratories. Before that, I have 38+ years in the semiconductor industry and software/hardware professions. I've worked in the industry as an IC design engineer, product engineer, production test engineer, and software applications engineer. My focus is now on FPGAs, embedded controllers (primarily ARM), systems administration (my workspace has 8 NAS servers (approaching 50T), a fiber-connected backbone, Gb+ Internet, Macbook Pro(s), and several PC(s) for design and development. My motto is from "silicon to software and back again."
