Mike Harwood and Andre Szczepanek have both held senior technical positions at Inphi and Texas Instruments.

In 2010 Mike & Andre founded & set-up Inphi’s UK Design Centre, recruiting eleven engineers.

Between 2010 and 2017, Mike led the UK mixed-signal CMOS design & layout team, along with design, verification and back-end teams in Santa Clara, California. These teams developed seven of Inphi’s 100Gb/s gearbox and CDR integrated circuits that are all in volume production.

Andre was an Inphi Distinguished Engineer during this time, with responsibility for the detailed architecture of, and being the digital lead for, all seven of the above products. He was also the Inphi OIF & IEEE standards representative, having editorial responsibilities at the IEEE.

Prior to Inphi, Mike & Andre were both senior, peer-elected technical staff at Texas Instruments (UK) until February 2009, holding the TI Distinguished Member of Technical Staff & TI Fellow titles respectively. Mike has 29 years, and Andre 37 years  of micro-electronic design experience.

We have a long-established, proven track record of working as a team on successful complex mixed-signal designs — from initial feasibility studies through to full custom IC designs in high-volume production.
