IC Desginer in Amsterdam, Netherlands
I work as an R&D engineer at NXP Semiconductors related to the design of SOC (System-on-Chip) transceivers for leading car manufacturers. There is a more than 50% chance that if you press a button in the car, it will go through the IC designed by the team I am part of.
Previously, I worked as a research engineer IC design at Semiconductor Solutions Division at Broadcom Limited, for the chips used in HardDrive(HDD)/SolidState(SSD) storage devices. During my work, I filed five US patents in the field of DFT - ASIC design to improve the IO observability in large scale semiconductor chips.
Apart from IC design, I also have a background in theoretical physics, and I am currently researching independently areas of automatic proof theory and the univalent foundation of mathematics.
I also started and founded Riyaaz. It is a startup based in Amsterdam where along with my business partner SOWISO, we are exploring how to add intelligence to the text-based mathematical content. SOWISO has developed an amazing web-platform to create advance level intelligent mathematics content. This is a unique technology which is not offered by any of the leading ed-tech platform such as Udacity, EdX and Coursera. Their web books are already in use in most of the universities of the Netherlands. If you wish to know more about the platform and the intelligent books, feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].
