Tom Doyle brings over 30 years of experience in operational excellence and executive leadership in analog and mixed-signal semiconductor technology to Aspinity. Prior to Aspinity, Tom was group director of Cadence Design Systems’ analog and mixed-signal IC business unit, where he managed the deployment of the company’s technology to the world’s foremost semiconductor companies. Previously, Mr. Doyle was founder and president of the analog/mixed-signal software firm, Paragon IC solutions, where he was responsible for all operational facets of the company including sales and marketing, global partners/distributors, and engineering teams in the US and Asia. He holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from West Virginia University and an MBA from California State University, Long Beach.
Brandon Rumberg, Ph.D. has more than a decade of experience with the full stack of low-power sensing technologies, spanning integrated circuit (IC) design, embedded systems and signal processing, and software development kit (SDK) creation and system integration. These combined skills provided the foundation for his new architectural approach to solving the power, size and cost issues with always-on high-bandwidth signal-processing devices. Dr. Rumberg holds multiple patents, has developed and taught three engineering courses, and has authored 20 publications — one of which earned him a Best Paper Award at the International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design, 2015. He received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from West Virginia University.
David Graham, Ph.D. has more than 15 years’ experience researching and working in low-power electronics, signal processing and bio-inspired electronic systems. He has been awarded numerous patents and has published numerous papers in these areas. Dr. Graham is also an associate professor in the Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at West Virginia University. He was a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2012, the West Virginia University Established Career Innovator Award in 2013, and the West Virginia University Foundation Outstanding Teaching Award in 2017. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, his M.S. and B.S. from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and his B.A.from Covenant College.
Marcie Weinstein, Ph.D. brings 20+ years of technical and strategic marketing expertise in MEMS and semiconductor products and technologies to Aspinity. Dr. Weinstein previously held various senior roles in marketing at Akustica, a Pittsburgh-based startup company, where she defined and launched a first-to-the-world MEMS microphone, developed the market ecosystem and IP strategy, and transitioned and managed the company’s marketing strategy after its acquisition by Bosch, the world’s leading MEMS manufacturer. Earlier in her career, she was a senior member of the MEMS group technical staff at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory in Cambridge, Mass. She received her Ph.D. in Solid State Physics from Lehigh University and her B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College.
Matte Zeleznik is an expert in product and new technology development with over 15 years of experience in MEMS and analog semiconductor products. Prior to joining Aspinity, Mr. Zeleznik was ASIC team lead for MEMS microphones at Akustica, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bosch, where he developed custom microphone ASICs spanning 12 generations of microphone products utilizing 3 CMOS and 2 MEMS processes. He has been awarded 8 patents - one of which earned him the Inventor of the Year award from Robert Bosch North America. He received his M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering and his B.S. in Microelectronic Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.
Michael Fuhrman, Ph.D. has over 30 years of experience in the development of sensors and machine learning/algorithms for a range of optical, audio and imaging applications. Previous roles have included positions in algorithm development and measurement and sensor technology at Alcoa, RJLee Group, ChemImage, L3Harris and several start-up companies. Dr. Fuhrman has been awarded 10 measurement related patents. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Carnegie Mellon University and his BEEE from The Cooper Union.
