Systems Architect at Mentor Graphics
I’m a former CTO, co-founder, and member of the board of Sarokal Test Systems Oy. Siemens acquired Sarokal Test System in 2018, and I continued as Systems Architect on Mentor a Siemens Business. Our success rise continuing.
Nothing is impossible. Some tasks are harder than others, and some need to fail as soon as possible that we have time for success.
I have over 20-year experience working with hardware and software designing. Starting from 3G and looking now to 6G horizon. All my career time, I have been working with FPGAs, Lattice, Altera, and Xilinx. Hard- and Soft-core processors, ARM, NIOS, and MicroBlaze, bare or with Linux. Seen product rise and falls, learn the magic of interest, and the importance of customers.
Nowadays, I deal with 5G testing, especially the fronthaul, and 5G PHY level. OBSAI, CPRI, eCPRI, RoE, O-RAN are a familiar fronthaul protocol to me. Some of those are also running top of other protocols like Ethernet. That for also Time-Sensitive Networking protocols like IEEE-1588 and SyncE is known.
The attraction of continuous learning and self-development keeps me up to date and bring new inventions. I follow news and trends on-field and academy. You can find me also from IEEE, JEDEC, and other standardizations comities.
