LONDON Gordon Neish has been named Vice President of Engineering at Nujira (Cambridge , England) and charged with leading the future development of the company's line of power modulators that Nujira suggests can reduce the energy consumption of cellular base stations and broadcast transmitters by 50 percent.
Neish joins Nujira from Motorola (formerly TTPcom) where he was Project Manager for their Applications Software Group for four years. He will manage a growing team of development engineers working at the company's Cambourne, Cambridge headquarters and will also be active in expanding the team at Nujira's recently opened centre of excellence in Bath.
Previously, he worked at Tality where he was Programme Manager on a number of projects including the development of a GSM EDGE base station for one of the world's leading network infrastructure manufacturers.
Nujira currently has Coolteq modules targeted at two primary infrastructure markets – Coolteq-H for WCDMA, LTE and WiMAX Cellular Base Stations and Coolteq-U for Digital Television Broadcast.
According to Tim Haynes, Nujira CEO : "Gordon brings to Nujira outstanding project management and RF engineering skills together with significant experience of bringing complex products to market on time."
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
