Core Team

Team work

Pablo Aguirre, Ing., M.Sc.

Mr. Aguirre has over 10 years of experience in analog and mixed-signal IC design and development of electronic systems (both hardware and firmware), particularly for medical and other ultra-low-power, high-reliability applications. As Co-Founder and Chief Design Manager at NanoWattICs, he has led the Design Team in charge of several ICs and IC modules for companies in North America, Europe and Brazil. Recently he also led the formation of a Firmware Design Team at NanoWattICs specially focused on medical applications. He holds an E.E. and a M.Sc. degree both from Universidad de la República, Uruguay, where he is a part-time Adjunct Professor. He is also a member of the IEEE.

Marcelo Baru, Ing., M.A.Sc.

Mr. Baru has over 16 years of experience in Ultra-Low-Power Electronics with focus on Medical Product R&D. Eleven of these years have been in roles of Project and Multi-disciplinary Team Management with three different start-ups in Canada and the U.S.A. He holds an E.E. degree from the Universidad de la República, Uruguay and a M.A.Sc. degree from SFU, Canada both in the area of integrated circuit design for medical applications. He is the principal inventor of the Neurostep system, the first fully implantable device for the treatment of drop foot in stroke patients, technology recently acquired by the Otto Bock Group.

Conrado Rossi, Ing., Ph.D.

Dr. Rossi has been involved in IC Design since 1991. He has extensive experience planning and leading R&D analog and mixed-signal ASIC projects, particularly for ultra-low-power systems such as implantable medical devices and wireless sensors. Mr. Rossi also has in-depth knowledge of ultra-low-power biasing circuits and temperature sensors, and has led the design of an industry-standard-compatible, low-power micro-controller core.

Fernando Silveira, Ing., Ph.D.

Dr. Silveira has more than 20 years of experience in the R&D of analog and mixed-signal ICs, and in system design, particularly for medical devices. Dr. Silveira led the design of an industrial ASIC for implantable pacemakers and has designed IC cells and at least eight analog circuit modules for companies in the USA, Israel, Europe and Canada that are part of medical devices under human clinical trials or in the market, mainly in the cardiovascular and neurology fields. He is the author of a book on the design of analog ICs for implantable medical devices and several peer-reviewed papers on design of ultra-low-power analog circuits. Dr. Silveira has an Electronic Engineering degree from Universidad de la República, Uruguay, and a Masters and a Ph.D. degree from Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. He is Scientific Advisor at NanoWattICs and Professor at Universidad de la República. He is also a senior member of the IEEE and has been elected Distinguished Lecturer by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.
