Dr. John L. Gustafson
Dr. John L. Gustafson is a well-known physicist and mathematician who has worked in various fields such as Semiconductor, Embedded, IoT, High-Performance Computing Systems, etc. Leadership positions at Intel Labs, AMD, and Sun Microsystems have been held by him. He is an alumnus of Iowa State University. Cluster computing was invented by him in 1985 and scalable massively parallel performance on real applications was demonstrated by him in 1988. He is a pioneer in high-performance computing. This is known as Gustafson’s Law, which earned him the first ACM Gordon Bell Prize. The IEEE Computer Society’s Golden Core Award has also been received by him. He advises Faststream Technologies on advanced, off-road maps and far-future research in the areas of VLSI Design and the Internet of Things.
Tamer El Sawah
Tamer El Sawah has 22 years of experience working extensively with Signal Processing & Control Systems, Microprocessors, MicroControllers, SoCs, A/Ds, DMAs, Programming Logic, Project Management, Requirement Analysis and handling an entire business ecosystem. Tamer has contributed exceptional insights into high-end development of Embedded Design, and other complex hardware products which power one of the most cutting edge IoT projects and Embedded Systems across the globe. He has initiated and led 28nm SoC projects, assigned roles and responsibilities, and designed relevant workflows. Tamer has directed a simplified design process for a capacitive proximity sensor system to provide sensor flexibility by integrating all of the front-end analog circuitry into a single AFE device. He has helped strategize the embedding process of multiple components in a single chip including SerDes, on-chip memory for GPON ONU, and microprocessors for intelligent control and management, and also incorporating multi-layer protocol functionality and packet processing into a single chipset. Tamer has guided a team project in developing a custom low noise-power AFE for detecting neural firings on the surface of the skin, sampling that information and routing it to a DSP core. He has integrated solutions with common optical functional blocks, such as Transceiver, EDFA, ROADM. Tamer holds a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from California State Polytechnic University-Pomona, California, USA.
