I believe that electronics is one of the most fascinating fields to be currently involved in. I consider it a privilege to work with System-on-Chip technology and to be involved into wide range of technical experiences, ranging from RTL design for different image processing challenges and embedded Linux kernel development to design of system architectures and team technical management.
Appreciation for one of the most important achievements in Latvian science in 2018 for “Original approach for neural network architecture implementation in field programmable gate arrays”
