This story just blows me away! I cannot tell you how impressed I am. Until I heard this I would have said that the days of an individual (or a small group) inventing and creating a new chip on their own were long gone -- but this tells me that the days of the garage inventor are still with us and I find that to be incredibly uplifting!

What a great story. He certainly deserves that smile on his face...

Hi David -- if I'd done what Andreas did my face would look like a Cheshire Cat (grin)

Andreas took the risk and now receives the rewards. All the best to his start-up.

I have had the privilege of working with Andreas before he set off on this crazy venture. Only he could pull off something like this. Apart from his brilliant technical skills he has a wonderful personality. Andreas, I’m very happy for you and I wish you the very best going forward!

This post is definitely a great inspiration to folks out there who are worried about cost of designing ASIC's from the ground up. This post definitely inspired me.

This is inspiration for me to design my own SoC, which I have been dreaming for years now. All the best Andreas :)

True hands-on, Deep Engineering; coupled with perserverance, self-belief, and intelligent direction of the effort to an end product need! The parallels and contrasts with Chuck Moore's work over at GreenArrays.com are fascinating, although Chuck wrote his own silicon compiler/GDSII layout tools because that was the only way to understand how fast silicon could actually go, and how to reliably achieve that potential performance in production. Juries are still out on commercial success for both efforts although of course we wish them well!

Amazing. This is what all engineers dream of when they start: making the "idea" into a product that bests the best. I still have a faint vision of this possibility.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
