The short story is that this website and blog is about the Internet of Things! Or more specifically the engineering required to implement IOT systems. Simple eh?
The long story … a bit more complicated.
I have been working for Cypress Semiconductor for the last 24 years. I started as a new college graduate (M.S. E.E. Georgia Tech) in 1991. I did a bunch of different jobs including SRAM Design Engineer and CAD Engineer. Over the course of the next two decades I ran the CAD group, I worked on device modeling, I was the CIO, and then, in 2011, I was promoted to the executive staff to run the Software Development Division. In June of 2014, in a middle seat on Shenzhen Airline between Nanjing and Shanghai I realized that I was totally burnt and needed to do something else. So, on July 6, 2014, I resigned. After a bunch of arm twisting- for which TJ, the CEO, is famous- I agreed to take a 6 month vacation.
Since I came back to Cypress I have spent my time doing two things; evangelizing the Cypress products, and driving the R+D and apps organization to make the user experience better.
I started this blog while I was taking vacation. Now I write about what I am working on in my spare time. I always wanted to write a book, and for now this blog is a substitute for that goal. It is my objective to write once per week about something real. I hope it help you.
