A Big Welcome to our New FPGA/VHDL Design Engineer

  • Published May 2017

Matt Bridges joined Active Silicon as a FPGA design engineer. He recently arrived in the UK from South Africa, where he had studied and then worked in Cape Town.

Matt’s previous company designed the computers for the MeerKAT telescope, a pathfinder project for the Square Kilometer Array (SKA). Matt was involved in FPGA design of high-speed interfaces used in these computers which process the large amounts of radio frequency data sent from the telescope’s many dishes.

A big welcome to Matt at Active Silicon! We are happy to have another experienced FPGA engineer on board. Field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology is at the heart of many of our products and their reach into new and innovative areas continues to grow.
